We will screw you

screwyou

Well I’ve heard there is a secret phrase
Religions play, giving them a raise
Well it goes like this:     We will screw you
We will screw you
We will screw you

They want your faith to be strong, but you faltered
You saw them preaching at the alter

Their words were bold and nearly overthrew ya

They had to sit you in their chair
and they took your money, without a care
And from their lips you heard:        We will screw you

We will screw you
We will screw you

 

But we’ve seen it here before

From the druid, priest, imam and rabbi
know you were better off before they knew ya

And I’ve seen their mark on their blessed door

But no one sleeps upon their floor
even if cold and broken:          We will screw you

We will screw you
We will screw you

Well it is now a time when I let you know
What’s really going on below
But now you never want to see that do ya
But remember when I loved just you
But the holy process was moving too
And every breath they said was:        We will screw you

We will screw you
We will screw you

 

If there was a God above
She’d let all of us be in love

Not how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya

And they have not a cry you hear at night
they’re not somebody who’s seen the light
Religion is so cold and broken.

Don’t follow them saying:        We will screw you

We will screw you
We will screw you
