Waiting takes time

Let me tell you a little story about a place called Purgatory
It’s the waiting room for Heaven that all sinners must go through
But you can’t while away the ages by flicking through the pages
Of a dog-eared Reader’s Digest, no, there’s more you have to do

See, the Lord requires punishment by corporeal fire,
so sinners expiate their faults in the purgatorial flames
yes their souls have ample time to contemplate their weakness
and atone for wicked pleasures gained from earthly fun and games

Waiting takes time
And that time should be well spent
While we’re waiting here for judgement,
There’s still time to repent
The Lord don’t care if you’re a rich man or you haven’t got a dime
We’re all waiting here for Jesus and waiting takes time

Well, this subject just reminded me of Einstein’s relativity
And the intricate relationship between space and time
Seems temporal punishment imposed by a force omniscient
Appears to contradict the theologians paradigm

But like that box that does the talking for good ol’ Stephen Hawking
The Lord moves in mysterious ways
When time and space coheses, just remember Jesus
Just be good to folks you meet, go to church and say your prayers

Waiting takes time
And that time should be well spent
While we’re waiting here for judgement,
There’s still time to repent
The Lord don’t care if you’re a rich man or you haven’t got a dime
We’re all waiting here for Jesus and waiting takes time
We’re all waiting here for Jesus and waiting takes time
We’re all waiting here for Jesus and waiting takes time
