As you can see, Carol, there is a crowd gathered here at the pond.
I've heard accounts of a peaceful gathering, though police can be seen patroling the area...

You've got your crazies for Jesus's sake
The losers who've got nothing to lose
You've got your herds of broken souls
Emotionally drained black holes
You've got them all here
Waiting for the gloryday!

You've got your crippled and blind and deaf
A selection of afflictions to choose
You've got your shreds of desperate lives
Your criminals and battered wives
All gathering here
Waiting for the gloryday!

Gloryday, Gloryday, Gloryday
Glory

Move over Graceland, bye-bye Woods
The world has a new religious shrine
The poor and the wealthy are coming in hordes
Bring your sins and form a line

For the t-shirts
Funny hats
Pamphlets
Poster art
T-shirts
Statuettes
Prayer books
Touring maps
T-shirts

Gloryday, gloryday
Gloryday, gloryday
Gloryday

In three days (In three days)
On Tuesday (On Tuesday)
At 1 pm sharp
A miracle (A miracle)
Will occur
Do not embrace the lies (Lies)
Or the doubts believed by some (Some)
From the depths of the pond
Our Lord shall come!

Gloryday, gloryday
Day, gloryday
Gloryday, gloryday
Gloryday, gloryday
Day, gloryday
Gloryday

You've got your crazies for Jesus's sake
The losers who've got nothing to lose (Glory)
You've got your crippled and blind and deaf
A selection of afflictions to choose (Gloryday)

And vulnerability
To use
As we wait (As we wait)
For the gloryday!

Gloryday, gloryday, gloryday
Gloryday, gloryday, gloryday
Gloryday, gloryday, gloryday
Glory, glory, GLORYDAY!!
