God ain't in his heaven 
Something ain't right 
I hear church bells ringing 
In the middle of the night 
They're dragging a man by his insides 
Through the broad daylight 
Thieves have their season sure 
But it's getting on midnight 
And the river's gonna rise 
It's gonna rise 
There'll be dancing in the street
When the river done rise 
Cold wind is blowing 
Flags flapping much too slow 
The monkey men sell paradise 
To the girls from Tupelo
Black shirted boys in the badlands 
Play machine gun rodeo 
The downtown missions packed too tight 
With folks that got nowhere to go 
But the river's gonna rise 
It's gonna rise 
And there'll be dancing in the street 
When the river done rise 
God ain't in his heaven 
Something ain't right 
The TV newsman smiles and says 
The curfew starts tonight 
They're killing a man from the inside 
In the broad daylight 
While the propped up puppet wags his head 
And watches all the proud things die
But the river's gonna rise
