Choices always were a problem for you.
What you need is someone strong to guide you.
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow.
What you need is someone strong to guide you.
Like me. Like me. Like me. Like me.
If you want to get your soul to heaven.
Trust in me now don't you judge or question.
You are broken now but faith can heal you.
Just do everything I tell you to do.
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow.
What you need is someone strong to guide you.
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow.
Let me lay my holy hand (uh), hand upon you.
My gods' will becomes me. When he speaks, he speaks through me.
He has needs. Like I do. We both want to rape you.
Jesus Christ, why don't you come save my life now.
Open my eyes, blind me with your light now.
Jesus Christ, why don't you come save my life now.
Open my eyes, blind me with your light now.
If you want to get your soul to heaven.
Trust in me now don't you judge or question.
You are broken now, but faith can heal you.
Just do everything I tell you to do.
Jesus Christ, why don't you come save my life now.
Open my eyes, blind me with your light now.
Jesus Christ, why don't you come save my life now.
Open my eyes, blind me with your light now.
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow.
Let me lay my holy hand upon you.
My gods' will becomes me. When he speaks, he speaks through me.
He has needs. Like I do. We both want to rape you.
I had a friend once, he took some acid.
Now he thinks he's a fire engine.
It's okay until he pisses on your lighter.
Kinda smells kinda cool, kinda funny anyway.
Satan. Satan. Satan. Satan. Satan.
I had a friend once, he took some ecstasy.
Tried to marry me and everyone in the room.
He was sorta loving, kind of caring.
Kind of tried to fuck my lazy-boy.
He got a bit messy all over the curtains,
Armchair covers, throw pillows, and carpeting

    He questions the deeper meanings of reality, religion, and everything that seems to be a conformity-established major force. He, simply put, has a deep mind.

    Then again, that's just my opinion/analysis. The only person who truly knows the meaning would be the artist himself.

    he is talkin from a priests point of view.
    religion is a joke. the priest's you know and love never spoke to god (though many of them have claimed to) how can they when the god they speak of doesn't exist.
    The funny thing is when he says "we both want to rape you"
    And what are Catholic Priests known for? haha
