lyrics

at the xian bookstore
there is product to be sold
so over there in China
there's some little 8-year-old
working in a factory and rarely going home
she's assembling plastic pencil cases
with the words to that "Footprints" poem

well, i wonder if the kids
who buy those Bible action playsets
ever stage a "cleansing of the temple"
re-enactment?
now no one knows for sure
but i think it's safe to say
if Jesus hadn't risen
he'd be rolling in his grave
