We Built This Synod on Rock and Roll
Emergent Church Hymn Suitable for All Synods



We built this synod, we built this synod on rock an' roll
Built this synod, we built this synod on rock an' roll

Say you don't know me, or recognize my faith
Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place
Knee deep in emergent, sinking in our blight,
Too many Dee-You-Eyes eating up the night.

Mark Jeske plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this synod, we built this synod on rock an' roll.

[Chorus]

Someone's always playing corporation games
Who cares they're always changing congregation names
We just want to play here, someone built our stage
They call us irresponsible, write us off the page.

Mark Jeske plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this synod, we built this synod on rock an' roll

[Chorus]

It's just another Sunday, in a tired old street
Bloggers have got the choke hold, oh, then we just lost the beat.

Who counts the money underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars
Don't tell us you need us, 'cause we're just simple fools
Looking for America, coming through WELS schools.

(I'm looking out over that Milwaukee bridge
Out on a gorgeous sunny Saturday and I'm seeing that bumper to bumper traffic)



Don't you remember (remember)

(Here's your favorite radio station, in your favorite radio city
The city by the lake, the synod that rocks, the synod that always sleeps)

Mark Jeske plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this synod, we built this synod on rock an' roll

[Chorus:Repeats x2]

(We built, we built this synod) built this synod(we built, we built this synod)
