The Lyrics

I was thinking about this for a week or so and finally got around to writing it after hearing RAD and MAD's recording (Fear of God) with a similar theme.
Thy God gives perfect sermons
At frequencies just ministers can hear
To help you keep from burning
I'll spread the word to your unworthy ears
And just like freedom heaven isn't free
So give your money to me

This town has heathens who'll be
In flames for eternity
If you don't give more than just dues
Then one heathen is you

George Bush should be respected
And blindly praised like Jesus and his dad
And he was fairly elected
The liberals just made up hanging chads
And Jesus wants George W. to win
You can ask Pat Robertson

This town has heathens who rea-
Lly hate Bush's policies
Agree with our great leader's views
Or one heathen is you

You gotta stay immersed in
FOX programming forget about abuse
Don't whine about the lack of jobs as well
Or else you're going to Hell

This town has heathens who seem
Afraid of theocracy
And even don't want prayer in schools
Yeah the heathens are fools

So find a heathen and show
Him why he must fear the unknown
Convince him to fight for what's true
Better heathens than you
The original song is easy to download (its #5 on the billboard 100 as of thursday may 20) and i'll have a recording up on soundclick when i get the chance

5-5-5 on quality only - I totally disagree with your politics. I just hope you'd have shown the same courtesy to me if I'd parodied Bill Clinton or Al Gore this way... or for that matter, John Kerry.
