sermon vs the gospel lyrics – cold war kids

getting closer everyday, getting closer everyday
lord have mercy on me, we’re talking about two different things
television and life magazine
lord have mercy on my
lord have mercy on me

got this idea in my head and i can’t get it out
’cause all your money and all your culture
i can surely live without
a pile of treasures up on earth
but what you keep and what you take
are property, vanity, and even knowledge for knowledge sake

and i said, lord have mercy on me
we’re talking about two different things
television and life magazine
lord have mercy on me
lord have mercy on me

don’t want to see no psycho*n*lyst
experienced in *ssisting to adjust
european travel, the h bomb, presidential elections
front page of the new york times
the front page of the new york times

lord have mercy on me
we’re talking about two different things
television and life magazine
lord have mercy on me
lord have mercy on me

quit your griping, shine your shoes
tell you a little secret for your blues
don’t make no difference, just watching from the stands
fat lady always claps her hands

lord have mercy on me
sayin’, even if you’re robbing from the poor
lord have mercy on me
i believe the words can change the heart
the words can change the heart
the words can change the heart

have mercy on me, oh lord
lord have mercy on me
talkin’ bout two different things
television, yeah, life magazine, yeah
lord have mercy on me, god
lord have mercy on me
gettin closer everyday
getting closer everyday
closer everyday
