Apologetix – Superficial lyrics

Very superficial – whitewash on the wall
Very superficial – letter of the law
There's too much obeying, no one's looking past
Leaven's in the breadbox spreading pretty fast
And do you really think that the Lord judges man on the surface
Superficial change your ways

Ooh, Pharisee official – wash your face and hands
Sifting out the small bugs, swallowing a camel
Keep doin' the same things, even though they're wrong
You don't want to change things, you've had 'em so long
When you receive these things that you know come from man
And you're stubborn
Your traditions taint your faith

There is true forgiveness – nothing more than grace
Carry your traditions to 29 Isaiah
Thirteenth verse, oh baby, go and look into that
7: 6-9 in Mark – put it in your past
And do you really think that the Lord judges man on the surface
Superficial change your ways

Mark 7: 6-7
He replied, "Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as
It is written: 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are
Far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught
By men. ' You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the
Traditions of men. "
