This is a song about religion. Fill in the blanks....


This is a song for the reverend's prey
the pedophile that got away
the politician who was at play before him
we came along as the peace march passed
good reforms didn't seem to last
don't look know but the earth might blow
before us
when we were kids the time would pass
like meteors on broken glass
or the sound of sunday mass commencing
and daddy told us what the bible said
sang a song when we went to bed
raised a glass when the spotlight shined upon him
but it's all wrong
we can't go home now
the truth will come somehow
and we can come to
gotta get your mind on survival
cuz youre getting blinded by the lights
the religious rights preach the bible
maybe now it's time to get it right
baby don't turn me on with your 26 smile
go to church and pray a while
as the thoughts of a broken promise pass me
are you a cause or circumstance?
i looked at you and caught your glance
i know you saw my ring while i was praying
but it's all wrong
you should go home now
the truth will come somehow
and we can come to

(outro includes exerpts from speeches by Jerry Falwell, Billy Graham, the ex-Boston Cardinal's lawyer and W.
