Lyrics and Chords of I Won't Say The Lord's Prayer

Artist:The Wonder Years




It's a series of bars, thrift stores and churches
Lining the streets
While women with gold crosses push kids
Into half-formed beliefs

And if Lord was righteous
I think I'd rather not be
We lean on fences built from
Out-dated morality

It's a gang mentality
It's a dangerous thing
They don't ask you to think
Just to repeat after me

And assume you're too careless
To look at it critically
You'll stop progress if it contradicts what
You're told to believe

And I refuse to spend life on my knees

These billboards that flaunt
These scare tactics
Make me think you're only good if
You're afraid of being punished

Every single Sunday
Church bells wake me up
But it's never enough
To pull me out of bed

The church on Main Street
Has got its doors painted red, and I guess
It's so the Angel of Death passes over it
On its way to get gas

The church on Broad Street
Has got a neon sign that says 'Jesus Save Me'
And I guess, it's so God can see from
Where he is, in these cheap seats

And I refuse to spend life on my knees

And I won't let somebody else
(Somebody else, somebody else, somebody else)
Somebody else make my decisions for me
(Make them for me)

If we're all just Christians or Lions
I think I'd rather be
On the side with sharper teeth
I don't need saving
