I saw a black man with a bible and a sparkler in his hand
He was holding a tent revival and running a firework stand
He said, "The end of the world is coming, so you better get on your knees
Today, bottle rockets are two for one but salvation's free

He said, "I quit my job at a big church where the milk and money flowed
To sell cherry bombs for Jesus in a tent beside the road
I ain't in it for the money, most cars pass on by
But I pay the rent on New Years and the fourth of July

Here at the Holy Ghost, Big Bang theory
Pentecostal, fire and brimstone
Mission temple firework stand

He said, "Fireworks are dangerous, they can blow up in your face
So you better read the instructions, light the fuse and get away
These things are made in China, so it's easy to see
How a man who worships Buddha ain't got no guarantee

This is the Holy Ghost, Big Bang theory
Pentecostal, fire and brimstone
Mission temple firework stand

He said, "Everything I'm selling is all going up in smoke
This world is like an atom bomb, it's ready to explode
When the trumpet sounds and The Lord comes back
I promise you one thing, I'll be a human bottle rocket
And I'll go out with a bang

I'll leave this, Holy Ghost, Big Bang theory
Pentecostal, fire and brimstone
Mission temple firework stand
