Apologetix – Rocky's Now My Name lyrics

Spent my past here, stuck in Galilee
Couldn't get inspired
Found the Master then He changed my name
'Cause Simon's old and tired
And you know Jesus says that I'm a rocky, stoney lad
But if Rocky's now my name it's better than the name I had

Well, the Zealot, magician and leper all had
Names that they shared with me
And there was a tanner
Jesus' brother and Judas' dad – even a Pharisee
Simon's name was standard
And there's Simon of Cyrene and
Simon Cowell and more than that, uh huh
So if Rocky's now my name it's better that He named me that

John 1: 42
And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon
Son of John. You will be called Cephas" (which, when translated, is Peter).
