Apocalyptica – I'm Not Jesus lyrics

Dirty little secret,
Dirty little lies.
Say your prayers and comb your hair,
Save your soul tonight.

Drift among the faithful,
Bury your desires.
Aberrations fill your head,
You need a place to hide
And I am...

Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Do you remember me?

Chorus:

When your world's come crashing down
I want to relive.
(Your god ain't looking down on me!)

I'm not Jesus,
Jesus wasn't there!

You confess it all away,
But it's only shit to me
(Your god ain't looking down on me!)

I'm not Jesus,
I will not forgive!

No I won't!
No I won't.

I thought you were a good man,
I thought you talked to god.
You hippocratic, messianic,
And child abusing-turned-satanic.

Do you remember me?
Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Do you remember?

Do you remember?

Chorus:

When your own world comes undone,
Let me be the one to say:
(Your god ain't looking down on me!)

"I'm not Jesus,
You can't run away! "

And the innocence you spoiled
Found a way to live.
(Your god ain't looking down on me!)

I'm not Jesus
I will not forgive!

I won't forgive.
I won't do whatever you want to.
I won't forgive.
I won't do whatever you want to.

Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Not the same as I used to be!
Oh, do you remember me?

Nooooooo!

Chorus:

When your world's come crashing down,
I want to relive
(Your god ain't looking down on me!)

I'm not Jesus,
Jesus wasn't there!

You confess it all away,
But it's only shit to me!
(Your god ain't looking down on me!)

I'm not Jesus,
I will not,
I'm not Jesus,
I will not forgive!

Oh, I will not forgive, yeahyeah!
No, I will not forgive!

    I think that this song is a reflection of how children who go through such trauma deal with what has happened to them. You cannot assume to know what that does to a person, a child and thus I think there is no way you can judge the way they cope with it. I don't think this song speaks against god but against the person that has wronged them in the most horrible way. Ask what your questions would be towards a greater being if this happened to you. This song can also be towards any child abuser, anyone that has betrayed a child's trust not just a priest.

    I don't believe that people should always jump to the For God and Not for God standing when a song says something about God. I believe in God, None has a right to bash me for it as I have no right to bash others for not believing. Says in the Bible that God Put us here for us to make our choice. However this song will probably be very close to a lot of hearts. From being abused or molested. I enjoy this song now that with a open mind I seen the lyrics and understand the song better. I didn't understand in full hearing it but now I do and I would suggest this song to other believers and non believers. The song is what matters the message not our believes guys.

    I totally a agree with 'heretics scribe' with the song's meaning. I -for some reason- love the part where it goes (I thought you were a good man/ I thought you talked to god/ you Hippocratic, messianic/ and child abusing-turned-satanic.) Because Messianic comes from Messiah or "the liberator" One that was sent from god to help the people. Then it said "child abusing turned Satanic" and Satanic is basically the devil. As Heretics scribe said 'a wolf in sheep's clothes' which makes me think that this part of the song is saying that the abuser is a demon in disuse as a holy person. The hole song is simply amazing and I think it really speaks of the abuse that children have to endure and that is a very heavy burden they must carry for the rest of their lives.

    I definately agree with heretics scribe and ladyofshadows. Could not get more accurate, especially the former person. Finally somebody got it. I would just like to add on to the part that goes, 'when your world comes crashing down I want to be there' (Not relive). Because I feel this immensely. I'm waiting for the day to see it myself! I want to be there when your world comes crashing down. And although you won't ever read this it doesn't matter anymore!
    (And wow, who would want to relive. Who types these lyrics?)

    The impression that I got from this is someone basically saying "well, when it all comes back to you, i'll get revenge for how you make me feel". It's all about losing trust in someone you thought you could rely on ("I thought you were a good man"), obviously because you don't really think this kind of thing could happen. And angelsamongus, just because someone can't forgive another for this doesn't make them a bad person. Living with this type of thing hurts. You don't forgive. You just try to forget. I'm inclined to agree with the latter two sentences from ladyofshadows in this case.
