Lyrics

You draw a halo on your hate
Serve it on a golden plate
So righteous in your mind
You’re blessed by Jesus
You say “Save them from their sins”
Judging out, but ya never look in
You got God on your side, but
You have no idea who SHE is

Don’t pray for me
Don’t you pray for me
Pray for yourself my friend
May be a white light at the end
But that’s a light you’ll never see

When the patriarch falls down
All the rulers turn to clowns
Kicking and screaming & scrounging
To save what’s theirs
The oppressed have come around
To collect their fair amount
Forget your heaven and hell
your judgment day is here and now

Don’t pray for me
Don’t you pray for me
Pray for yourself my friend
There’s justice in the end
Here on the right side of history
