Jesus was a hippie, peace and love was all he was about
That's why they killed him, cause that sh*t's something people can't figure out
Now some folks who worship him are the ones who would have cheered at the crucifixion
They got no conviction it doesn't matter if the man was fact or fiction

Nixon was a liar it's the one thing believed to be true
But tricky dick was not a crook whatever that means, whatever presidents do
Money can't buy you children and nothing can bring them back to you
We all make mistakes we all need someone to look up to

But who're you gonna call your fearless leader
Who's gonna put your fears to bed
But heroes will never let you down just as long as they're dead
Satan is a feeling, deviance it lurks in everyone

Guilty pleasures, mischievous behavior can be fun
No one made you do it, nobody but yourself to blame
It's always at your door and trouble is it's name

But who're you gonna call your fearless leader
Who's gonna put your fears to bed

Sometimes you gotta pick and choose
Sometimes no matter what you lose

Divine was a woman whos' private parts said she was a man
Those were his private parts the parts that he could never understand
But she was an actress she could be anything that she wanted
Her reality was the very thing that she flaunted

But who're you gonna call your fearless leader
Who's gonna put your fears to bed
But heroes will never let you down just as long as they're dead

But who're you gonna call your fearless leader
When you run from fear you leave yourself behind
You can't dump your fears on someone else
Cause it's all in your mind
