"Jesus Was Once a Teanager Too" as written by and Dave August/tielli Bidini....
Jesus was once a teenager too.
He knelt on the lawn and he wept woebegone,
while all his ex-friends raced like demons into
the face of the Albion Mall.

Jesus was once a teenager too.
He leapt cross the rooftops and he wondered aloud
why all of the neighbourhood night police stood
around the face of the Albion Mall.

All I'm feeling is sorrow inside.
Superman feelings I can't help but hide.
I feel I've been caught in an animal trap.
Crucify them, not I.

His teachers all claimed he'd been smitten with shame
from his father's cheap daredevil Circus of Fear.
He'll need but a miracle these days to steer
from the face of the Albion Mall.


Jesus was once a teenager too.
Though he could walk on the water
he could not face the laughter.
'Cause the tools of his trade
were the size of his feet.

    General CommentNote sure about this one. It does seem to tell a very specific story. Perhaps about a misunderstood person with mental health issues? It wouldn't be the first time in a Rheos song!
