People on the street they wannna find a god they'll never know,
Organized religion pulls the blinds then they pull the wool,
They open up your head, they're fuckin' with your mind,
Now you can't see because you're blind
You try to make amends but your heads still spinnin' round,
The church of Jesus Christ said it's time, don't fuck around,
You wanna go to heaven, you see it isn't free, give your money up to me
My god is not the one that you wanna see, your god is a mirage,
A conspiracy, you pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin',
Scared to death so your money you'll be givin', yeah
(Ohoh) [x2]

Holier than thou with your one way morality,
I think your shallow faith isn't based in reality,
You don't like how were live, we're sinful and obscene,
Why are you judgin' me?
You're richer than God but you're cryin' out for more,
You're livin' like a king while you steal from the poor,
Wanna be forgiven, get on your knees and pray,
Send in your cash and be saved

My god is not the one that you wanna see,
Your god is a mirage, a conspiracy,
You pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin',
Scared to death so your money you'll be givin',
Yeah, better hope you've been chosen to be saved
(Ohoh) [x2]
Cause your empathy only goes so far today
Pay no mind to those in pain if you just want the souls
Who are willing to pay
Their way, your god's not for me

My god is not the one that you wanna see,
Your god is a mirage, a conspiracy,
You pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin',
Scared to death so your money you'll be givin',
Yeah, my god is not the one that you wanna see,
Your god is a mirage, a conspiracy,
You pray for forgiveness cause your sinnin',
Scared to death so your money you'll be givin',
Yeah, stop
(Ohoh) [x4]
