The Killers invite Elton John and Pet Shop Boys singer Neil Tennant to provide vocals on 'Joseph, Better You Than Me' with wonderful lyrical and theological insights. Note the subtle change in the refrain as the song develops:
From the temple walls to the New York night: Our decisions rest on a child
When she took her stand did she hold your hand?
Will your faith stand still or run away? Run away?
From the temple walls to the New York night: Our decisions rest on a manAnd my favourite line linking the 40 years and 40 days wilderness times:
When I take the stand, When I take the stand, Will he hold my hand?
Will my faith stand still or run away?
And the desert, It's a hell of a place to find heavenP
