Forty days you've been tired and tempted,
Forty nights you've been out in the cold,
Every phoneline conversation's been intercepted,
And you can't reconnect 'cos the frequency is closed.

So many miles you've been out of direction,
So many signs but you ain't got nowhere to go.
Your Cadillac has got it's headlights disconnected,
Rolling your wheels down the wrong side of the road.

Can you see them now?
Can you see them now?
Can you see the sisters swinging, yeah?
Can you hear them now?
Can you hear them now?
Can you hear the brothers singing, yeah?

Let's go back to church,
Let's go back to church,
So damn long since we sung this song,
Let's go back to church.

Let's go back to church,
Let's go back to church,
Any day now, anyway, anyhow,
Let's go back to church.

You drank the wine but it, it tastes like water.
You broke the bread but it had turned to stone.
Your sacrament it lay scattered on the pavement
And the covenants you kept have all been stolen and sold.

You can see them now,
Yeah, you can see them now,
You can see the sisters swinging yeah.
I know, yeah, you can hear them now
Yeah, you can hear them now
You can hear the brothers singing yeah.

Let's go back to church,
Let's go back to church,
So damn long since we sung this song,
Let's go back to church.

Let's go back to church, yeah,
Let's go back to church,
Any day now, anyway, anyhow,
Let's go back to church.
Right back!

Oh lord knows I,
Oh lord knows I,
Oh lord knows I,
I've been converted.
