  • This was a church
    A house full of prayer
    It ain't that now
    I could tear it down
    There's thieves at the altar
    A snake wears the crown
    Handing you coal
    Swearing it's gold

    Look what they've done to this house of love
    It's too late to turn river to blood
    The saviors come and gone, we're all out of time
    The devil's in the temple and he ain't no friend of mine

    I'd turn things around
    I would if I could
    Crash through the gates
    Break every chain
    Jail for the jealous
    Sing freedoms song
    Amazing grace
    Burn down this place

    Look what they've done to this house of love
    It's too late to turn river to blood
    The saviors come and gone, we're all out of time
    The devil's in the temple and he ain't no friend of mine

    Look what they've done to this house of love
    Look what they've done to this house of love
    The devil's in the temple and he's making a mess
    Got the Mona Lisa, got his hands up her dress
    The gun is in his hand but he ain't gonna confess
    He lies

    Look what they've done to this house of love
    It's too late to turn river to blood
    The saviors come and gone, we're all out of time
    The devil's in the temple and he ain't no friend of mine
    The devil's in the temple and he ain't no friend of mine
    The devil's in the temple and he ain't no friend of mine Writer/s: BILLY FALCON, JON BON JOVI
