"My Jesus" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
My Jesus is
Like a voice in the dark
My Jesus is
Like a lonely warning

My Jesus is
Like a fear that haunts me
My Jesus is
Like a tortured memory

I'm praying
For my soul
I'm praying
For my soul

For my...

My Jesus is
A collector of pain
My Jesus says
'Pain will prove you love me'

My Jesus is
Like a shadow crawling
My Jesus says
'Their screams will guide you to me'

I'm praying
For my soul
I'm praying
For my soul

I'm praying
For your soul
I'm praying
For your soul

    General CommentI don't really like NIN while I really love Pure album, so I am tired of this stupid reviews about that, in any case, he also had strong influences of Bowie in his early years... Pure album is great, and his lyrics are awesome about internal religious fights; in this case, he admires Jesus and the collector the pain, and the real meaning of pain in this world.

    General CommentI've been a Gary Numan fan since I saw him perform "Cars" and "Praying To The Aliens" on Saturday Night Live. I like the mood this music creates although I lament the fact that Gary has completely lost the pioneering spirit and originality that once drew me to him like a magnet to steel. I like Nine Inch Nails. I bought "Pretty Hate Machine" on CD in April 1990. I don't need Gary pretending to be Trent. What a waste of Gary's time this is - and mine to listen to it.

    Is it still considered trendy and brave to publicly declare oneself in opposition to and in defiance of Christians? Like what are they going to do to you if they catch you? Burn you at the stake? No.

    Why not declare yourself in opposition to and in defiance of rap or the mafia or drug cartels or anyone who might really do you some harm if you take the wrong exit off of some freeway in the bad part of town.
