Your body, I know
was bloodied and broke
was buried and rose
to pay for our souls

You flooded the earth
and parted the sea
You gave us your word
I always believed

But I cannot keep all the promises made
when lovers are losing to faith hope and hate
You haven't got love if all that keep
is sureness and safety and run from the deep of the world

of Gay boys and girls
the happiest bunch
all born into love
not sin that we're taught
The lukest of you say never get caught
and drown all your love in faith hope and fraud

And I shouldn't bother is what I'm now told
"Religion's a system of roman control"
And I can't deny what the darkest know true
the white of our acts may have outweighed the good of our words
