lyrics

Bible Belt
Have you been to the Bible Belt?
Have you been to the House of the Lord.
I pray for your souls at night,
in the spirit of the Lord.
I’m ashamed of the clothes you wear,
I’m ashamed of the words you say,
I’m ashamed of the work you do,
I’m ashamed of your underwear.
Have you been to the Bible Belt?
Have you been to the House of the Lord.
I pray for your souls at night,
in the spirit of the Lord.
I’m ashamed of the thoughts you think,
I’m ashamed of the friends you make,
I’m ashamed of your heresy,
I live vicariously…
Come now to the Lord,
Come now to the Fold,
Come now to the Lord,
Come now to the Fold.
Praise Jesus, Hallelujah,
Praise Jesus, Hallelujah.
Sons beget sons beget sons beget sons
and for years they try to impress their father
for years the girls try to win their papa
and still this shit be running improper.
How do we break the mold
of all the shit we’ve been told?
just a game of throwing ball
are you a top or are you a bottom
you play the man you play the woman.
How do we break the spell?
how do we be equal?
tell you what
the first time we fuck
we’ll stand up
there won’t be any down…
Did you integrate the experience?
Well, what do you mean?
Or did you just absorb it?
Have you been to the Bible Belt?
Have you been to the House of the Lord.
Praise Jesus, Hallelujah,
Praise Jesus, Hallelujah.
