The Lyrics

This is a backslidden girl singing to the pastor of her liberal church about the hypocrisy and indifference to sin that liberalism produces.
Cut my tongue out
I've been cussing
My salvation is in doubt
Happy hours
Golden showers
I've been sinning when I'm out

Need to hold me accountable
Things we need to talk about
Sadness felt you
Hardship dealt you
I'll be back to help you

When I show up
I'll be faithful
When I show up
I'll shed the labels

Trying hard to fit among you
Doing worse than I had planned
Unprotected
I got pregnant
Felt the consequences

When I show up
I'll be faithful
When I show up
I'll shed the labels

Blood and blisters
On my fingers
Chaos rules when I'm not here
Watch my temper
I go mental
Please be more judgmental

When I show up
I'll be faithful
When I show up
I'll shed the labels

When I show up
When I show up
When I show up
I'll shed the labels

Please take offense
Gotta make amends
Rip my rep to shreds and I will grow

Please take offense
Gotta make amends
Witness to my friends so they will know

Give me guilt-trips so I won't be a ho
Make me pay back the money that I owe
I'll find another church if you're too slow
