Staind – Paper Jesus lyrics

You take yourself a prayer then
All the things they choose to feed you
By keeping you distracted
Just long enough to bleed you

A reason for your anger
Is what i need
Is what i need
To recognise the truth
Is what i need
Is what i need
So burn your paper jesus
Is what i need
Is what i need
And all the things you do
Is what i need
Is what i need

Question what they tell you
All the lies that they are teaching
How the desperate peoples feeling


Somebody chose these words for you
Enter pretentions of the truth
Somewhere behind your feeling high
To fill the holes inside
