Song Lyrics


Song Meaning
Verse 1
I can't say that I love Jesus
That would be a hollow claim
He did make some observations
And I'm quoting them today
"Judge not lest ye be judged"
What a beautiful refrain
The studio audience disagrees
Have his lambs all gone astray?
Verse 0
[Chorus]
Call me a leper
Call me a leper
Call me a leper
Verse 2
"You are lost and disillusioned!"
What an awful thing to say
I know this show doesn't flatter
It means nothing to me
I thought I might help them understand
But what an ugly thing to see
"I am not an animal"
Subtitled under the screen
Verse 3
[Chorus]
Verse 4
When I tried to tell my story
They cut me off to take a break
I sat silent five commercials
I had nothing left to say
The talk show host was index-carded
All organized and blank
The other guests were scared and hardened
What a sad parade
Verse 5
What a sad parade
Verse 6
[Chorus]
