Title :

Fishin' 4 Religion

Grab the baitgrab the box and wait

Tackle and shackle the topic the faculty has chosen

Chosen by manychosen by plentychosen by any

man or woman who can't understand

the topic that's known and

[Go by the dock] flock and clock the topic

as I drop my hook and get a bite

The reason I'm fishin' 4 a new religion

is my church makes me fall asleep

They're praising a God that watches you weep

and doesn't want you to do a damn thing about it

When they want change the preacher says "shout it"

Does shout bring about change ? I doubt it

All shout does is make you lose your voice

So on the dock I sit in silence

staring at a sea that's full of violence

Scared to put my line in that water

coz it seems like there's no religion in there

Naively so I give it another go

Sitting in church hearing legitimate woes

Pastor tells the lady it'll be alright

Just pray so you can see the pearly gates so white

The lady prays and prays and prays and prays

and prays and prays and prays and prays...it's everlasting

There's nothing wrong with prayingit's what she's asking

She's asking the Lord to let her cope

so one day she can see the golden ropes

What you pray for God will give

to be able to cope in this world we live

The word "cope" and the word "change"

is directly oppositenot the same

She should have been praying to change her woes

but pastor said "Pray to cope with those"

The government is happy with most baptist churches

coz they don't do a damn thing to try to nurture

brothers and sisters on a revolution

Baptist teaches dying is the only solution

Passiveness causes others to pass us by

I throw my line until I've made my decision

until thenI'm still fishin' 4 religion

Fishin' 4 religion (11x)
