Steve Taylor – Guilty By Association lyrics

So you need a new car?
Let your fingers take a walk
Through the business guide
For the 'Born Again' flock
You'll be keeping all your money
In the Kingdom now
And you'll only drink milk
From a Christian cow
Don't you go casting your bread
To keep the heathen well fed
Line Christian pockets instead
Avoid temptation, guilty by association
Turn the radio on
To a down-home drawl
Hear a Brylcream prophet
With a message for y'all
I have found a new utensil
In the devil's toolbox
And the heads are gonna roll
If Jesus rocks
It's a worldly design
God's music should be divine
Try buying records like mine
Avoid temptation, guilty by association
So you say, it's of the devil
And we've got no choice
Because you heard a revelation
From the, 'Still Small Voice', hey you
If the Bible doesn't back it
Then it seems quite clear
Perhaps it was the devil
Who whispered in your ear
It's a Telethon Tuesday
For 'The Gospel Club'
Send your money in now
Or they're gonna pull the plug
You just remember this fact
When they plead and beg
When the chicken squawks loudest
Gonna lay a big egg
You could be smelling a crook
You should be checking The Book
But you'd rather listen than look
The implication, guilty by association
