keep the faith

your daddy’s prayers can’t save you

but you listen when they’re said

and even though you close your eyes

they’re pounding in your head.


the simple faith they tell of

is not what you believe

your actions all speak for you

and there’s something up your sleeve …


you’ve made a deal with darkness

by the hate and lies you spew

and if daddy’s god is listening

he’s had enough of you.


so why not shame the devil

while you try to tell the truth

because we’re all too old now

to hide behind our youth.


lose that fake religion

that you’ve tried to hide behind

while there is still time for you

to make up your own mind.
