Hallelujah Explicit and Uncovered

I’m familiar with some clichéd chords
That Psalmists pick to charm the Gods
And originality is not their cup of tea
The fancy riffs the rise and fall
The all knowing has heard it all
It’s not rocket science to compose Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was painted like a spoof
From your high and mighty palace roof
Where one day your sons will take your concubines
You took her in and made her yours
And then you got rid of her spouse
You woke up to an aching Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well Baby I am not a God
You know that I am but a bard
I serenade in public and dance naked
I've waved the flag and I have lied
At last I’ve broken down and cried
In strains of bruised and bleeding Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Once upon a time in eternity
The air was clean and the stars were free
To sing about the beauty of their making
The brooding spirit has arrived
To blow his prostituted bride
Merciful but not fooled by her lip service

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The blame is taken down'n slain
Crucifixion won’t entertain
But if it did, it speaks volumes about you
Bow your knee and complain
Spit your fiery tongues in vain
In holy and in stolen Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I failed the test wanting a crutch
I couldn't trust, so I had to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to screw you
And though I lose my way back home
I'll find it with a fine toothed comb
With nothing on my map but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There’s only so much I can sing
These lines are all I have to bring
For anything read in between I blame you
Lover when you take the stance
Love is not a game of chance
It’s a dance where we both hear different music

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

For those who think they know the facts
Pertaining to these glorious acts
Shooting from the critics point of view
Bite your tongue and kick the cat
Face your flaws in mortal combat
The demons of your self are out fuck you

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah



Have we made love a fantasy
Before you fled from reality
I cherished your every shade of integrity
The spectrums bleed into white
Haunting us with dreams of light
In taunting and redeeming Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Is any of this too explicit
Does it hurt or sound counterfeit
I swear; i did not try to ruin it
I learnt to sing in the valley of loss
Marry the church in the courts of divorce
Convicting choir’n jury with Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Eye to eye and cheek to cheek
Reflecting each other so to speak
Together we make a freak clique
We’re opposites but that's alright
If love is strengthened in the fight
Nights break open in moans of Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

In agony and theology
Liturgic philematology
I practiced the apology i owe no one
Cheerfulness comes breaking forth
In breathless orgasmic pains of birth
Wrapped in cries and sighs of Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Fine wine and a sound mind
Soul and spirit intertwined
I've never seen how love could be so blind
Delusions of destructive kindness
Burst asunder far behind us
In mushrooms of smoking Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Slight of hand and a twisted arm
Wasted dreams and a plastered charm
We were throwing up at the gates of hell
If we make it past the eleventh hour
Would Jesus, captain of the bar
Serve us through happy hours forever

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah


The Holy Spirit is on the house
Fires many streams wont drouse
Unless it is from within don't let her rouse
She must sleep off her poison
Wake up to a new horizon
And a vision of sincere devotion

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I've worn my scars to the bone
My tragadies are overblown
I've reaped every blessing i have known
I've sown the salt of life and choice
I've watched the mountiains all rejoice
And celebrate their roots in Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah


I'd like to think i had no choice
Born with the gift of a tortured voice
And an appitite for vice though i'm a novice
I'd love to put my thoughts on ice
Salute the personal edifice
It all comes down to simple Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

What does it mean to be adult
To bear wittness of one’s own fault
My template is childish by default
I cut my teeth with every insult
Exult in poetic result
Forgiveness can be vengeful Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

My heart is bare like a vacant throne
Deserted in the dawn of doom
No wonder I am so prone to gloom
The census was my thorny crown
My measured might brought me down
Now weakness is the business of Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Murder can be kinder
Than watching the master steal your lover
You got me in my zeal for office
Amends within the bounds of reason
Portends to justify treason
When Hallelujah is way out of question

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Deafened by your dead silence
I crave the ghost of eloquence
Rising up from forbidden science
The oldest roads lead to her door
Nothing's changed the sorrow in store
Lying and bamboozling Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A mirror is the poet’s best friend
If God ran out of angels to send
I see my self in you so selfishly
My vanity looks good to me
My fetters gleam like jewelry
You see through me despite the debris

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah


It’s hard to not be inspired
When the brain is wrecked and the heart is fired
I should have retired long before I started
You know I lack the common sense
To gauge the limits off the fence
An immigrant in illegal Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I strived with angels overnight
Battled demons in their own right
I've stolen my own brother's birthright
I beat the system of employment
With dreams to crack the wage arangement
Limping to the tune of Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Everyone has spoken well
Of souls that now burn in hell
The living are available to buy and sell
I try to not piss on the market
With all of my eggs in one basket
To be honest I don't think I can fake it

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

It's wrong to pitch a song this long
Not trying to please anyone
I've pledged my allegiance to my art
For it's own sake I have to part
With many a pleasure of the heart
Casting all my pearls to Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I don’t believe in static balance
Like I disbelieve ecstatic parlance
Your truth claims are quite your own design
You could say the same of mine
Everyone has their stance to divine
My decided hobbling stride is Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I've walked the second mile a lot
With both my feet in my mouth
I slept through many a haircut of regret
My soul's set to a grinding stone
My verve is not yet overthrown
I'm not immune to opportune Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Sometimes I've felt i did belong
Those moments did not last very long
I've captured a few of them in song
I set them free in my memory
In celebratory esprit
Boyant with the weight of Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Low down in the tower of dirge
Inhaling wiffs of sulphor surge
I fear the enterprise would submerge
I can't deny this desperate urge
To peal my heart for what might emerge
I pay my rent in uncountable Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Let's trade places for a moment
You can play house in my basement
And i can be spectator of my story
I'd know all the gory details
Of your sanctuary and bed of nails
And you's probably appreciate my poetry

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Cahoots the unthinkable
A friend-ship so unsinkable
Like the live gig on the Titanic
Manic panic sonic oceanic
Frantic music made me theo-sick
We got hit by the tip of Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Shallowness no deeper than a splash
Blinded by your luminous flash
I'd love to hang on but i must dash
Thank you if you heard me out
I know not what i sing about
Except it's some kind of Hallelujah

Hallelujah,.. ad infinitum!
Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah
