Put your hands on your wallet
And put the money in the basket
On your knees, cross yourself
Forget the body and the blood
Like Peter turned upside down
Locked down, forgiven
We all get taxed in the end
And no one is exempt
Our father who art forsaken
In every action followers taken
If it makes you feel better, what can I say
Be proud, in public don't whip it out
Keep it to yourself, It's better that way
And don't try and shove it down my child's throat
You need tall tales to tell you you're special
To fill that hole where thought should dwell
Ignore the text, stigma over dogma
Use the words of peace to damn them to hell
Have you ever seen what a shepherd does?
He controls the masses
With a stick in a field of simple minds
And they thank him for the grasses
Have you ever read the book you tout?
Contradiction amasses
Translations and edits
Preaching judgment that passes
Take that holy bath
I'll stick with my worldly math
Order of operations says
To multiply before you divide
You've taken a different approach
To handling the huddled masses
Start with division, us against them
Threaten, cajole, rage, and sin
