Well I see the people in the balconies
On the streets and in their cars
The party going animals out in the back rooms
And the bars saying we don't need religion
We don't need religion
And I been a timber jack been a laborer
Been a shipyard man and a shirker
Been builder building houses
And heard a million Macdonald's workers
Saying we don't need religion
We don't need religion
We don't need religion
But we could use the love of God

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah yeah

Well I've got false prophets on my TV telling me
This union's doomed
While the spirit filled believers
Shake up the floor space in the room
Saying we don't need religion we don't need religion
So come all you Preachers and Pastors
All you Priests and Nuns and scholars
Come on and walk down the road without those robes
Crucifixes and Orange collars singing
We don't bleed religion
We don't bleed religion we don't need religion
But we could use the love of God

Now is it Saturday or is it Sunday
The fact is I'm never sure
There's a Sabbath in there some way
How come we never try Yom Kippur
We can't eat religion we don't need religion
And while we're all so busy fighting
Using up God's precious time
There's a thousand starving homeless people saying
Buddy can you spare a dime saying
We can't eat religion we can't eat religion yeah
We don't need religion but we
Could use the love of God
