Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

a look at "christian" rock bands
singing on a lighted stage
approaches the surreal
our faith is not for real
cause we're only out for royalties
this is the jesus age

cast in this unlikely role
it is all an act
conviction's what i lack
one must be so serious
to keep the ruse intact

singing 'bout the lord's life
just makes me wanna scream
we are not what we seem

those who will succeed
must mesmerize the congregation
play upon their fascination
the jubilation
the everlasting theme

living just like jesus lived
i'm not that kind of guy
the whole act is a lie
but i can pretend as long as...
there's money in the end

here we are upon the stage
three little music players
just jesus-freak portrayers
guess we fooled the audience
and we are all the rage
