Your messiah was never mine

Your messiah was never mine

Your messiah was never mine
Your messiah was never mine
Your messiah was never mine
Your messiah was never mine

Your messiah was never mine
Your messiah was never mine
Your messiah was never mine
Your messiah was never mine

Hypocrites

Weeping rose of Jeremiah
Drops of blood drip off your petals
Representing all our tears
In a ring of burning metal

How you gonna be what you gonna say it
Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay

Sorcerers and sadists come
To define the what and why
People travel across this Earth
Over water, land, and sky

How you gonna be what you gonna say it
Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay

Pay the ferryman, pay the fucking driver
Pay the preachers and, pay the fucking liars
Pay the bitches they're, charging with their dates stand by
I'm not gonna pay, it's already mine

Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
Your messiah was never mine

Weeping rose of Jeremiah
Purity unlike no other
Offers hope to those who need it
Don't forget care to thy brother

How you gonna be what you gonna say it
Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay

Little old lady at home
Writing out a check to send
It's all the money that she owns
She believes the world might end

How you gonna be what you gonna say it
Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay

Pay the ferryman, pay the fucking driver
Pay the preachers and, pay the fucking liars
Pay the bitches they're, charging with their dates stand by
I'm not gonna pay, it's already mine

Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
Your messiah was never mine

Hypocrites

Pay the ferryman, pay the fucking driver
Pay the preachers and, pay the fucking liars
Pay the bitches they're, charging with their dates stand by
I'm not gonna pay, it's already mine

Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites
I'm gonna do it blind
Hypocrites

Hypocrites

    General Commenti think it's about religious leaders manipulating people into paying money. They claim it's for God but then they blow it off in a bar or buy a new car -hence the song title.

    The singer here is saying he would rather keep the money because the God of the religion is not his God.

    General CommentI certainly think it's inspired by Head's departure. However, I don't think it's totally aimed at Head, but more towards the hypocritical religous leaders.

    General CommentI think what he's saying for that part with the **** is "bitches".

    I think this song might be a little bit influenced by Head's leaving... but personalchaos_17 has a pretty good point as well.

    General CommentYou don't need to go to church to consider yourself religious or a Christian, etc.
    Why? Well, if you take a look around you, alot of the people attending church are hypocrites. For example: On a Saturday night, you go to the bar, and cheat on your wife. Then on Sunday you go to church to ask to be forgiven, and then repeat the process again next week! Not only that, you try to preach to others the ways of your religion, and condem others when they to wrong. What you're doing is just as bad if not worse! What are you? A HYPOCRITE.

    General CommentOnlyinDreams, I agree with a you to a point, but Jon Davis makes this out to look like everyone who is involved in religion a liar and such, which is part of the reason I dont liek this cd as much as the others, he points oput everyone elses faults when they used to point out his back in high school--HYPOCRITE
