VERSE 1

 

Brought up on the good book,

 

Three whole ser.vices a week.

 

Base-ball cards that I took,

 

Sadly, were not mine to keep.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

That was only kid stuff.

 

Then I upped my game a lot.

 

Most lies told were not bluffs,

 

And they led to cher-ry pops.

 

 

Chorus

 

These are my confessions.

 

Told in hopes they might save.

 

Others from committing,

 

(Old Lucifer permitting),

 

Similar transgressions,

 

(And) Have their Messiah spinning in His grave.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

Spinning Messiah.

 

Most deities are pretty chill.

 

Spinning Messiah.

 

And yes, you want to keep them still.

 

So don't be sacrilegious or harbor ill will,

 

Otherwise, it won't be long until,

 

Your Messiah will be spinning in his grave.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Just heard from your main squeeze,

 

News of your pa-ter-ni-ty.

 

Say I do, or dis-please,

 

For like all e-ter-ni-ty.

 

 

Chorus

 

These are my confessions.

 

Told in hopes they might save.

 

Others from committing,

 

(Old Lucifer permitting),

 

Similar transgressions,

 

(And) Have their Messiah spinning in His grave.

 

 

The End
