Outside, a temple awaits us
where the sinner's exalted.
I wanna feel exalted.
Upon the heath, a temple awaits us
where man and child worship one and the same.

And in the late, midnight hours
I heard the ceiling turns into flowers.
They say a pearl's best friend is the hearse
and the girls wear long, flowing skirts.

Outside, a temple awaits us
where the children are playing.
You just gotta play along.
Upon the heath, a temple awaits us.
I asked you enter!
Would you enter for me?

We could've grooved there night and day
like the windblown vines that sway.
But you wouldn't leave that room!
You mahogany-furnished your fate.

And Jesus, He prayed in the garden.
He did His last breathing, but He broke free from the sprawl.
And someday we'll climb up to the temple,
we'll be filled with big laughter.
Whoa, babe.
How will we keep from singing?
Even today, how can I keep from singing?
