"Died a Jew" as written by and Max Bemis....
You say you hate the shade of face for my father's share crops
My people were slaves before yours invented hip-hop
Apologize but I'm in on the joke
Another brother to scoff at the dancing patterns of white folk

I think I'm fine the way I am
(and yes I chase my milk with ham)
I think I'm fine the way I am
Jesus died a Jew
Pupils painted blue
You haters know it's true
Jesus died a Jew

You say you hate the breadth of my nose for my daddy's earlocks
Shunned before you pierced it and sold it and called it "punk rock"
Apologize for the murder of god
Like Judas the traitor we are both favored and deeply flawed

I think I'm fine the way I am
(although we broke our promised land)
I think I'm fine the way I am
Jesus died a Jew
Pupils painted blue
You haters know it's true
Jesus died a Jew
So I'll let it burn away
Let it burn away
Let it burn away
Let it burn away

    General CommentA few of you touched on good points, but to be honest, as a Jew in the southern region of our country, this song has pretty personal meaning to me, because you know, I may not be the most devout Jewish person (I chase my milk with Ham, a reference to not keeping Kosher), and although the Jews have not been perfect in their existence(we broke our promised land), the religion that dominates this country, and has been responsible for the majority of the anti-semitic actions over time, was founded and based upon Judaism and that will never change. Cheers Max Bemis!

    General CommentI personally take the whole song as a metaphor that's saying how stupid racism is.

    General CommentPersonally, I think (Going more along the lines of the album's concept) that this song is meant to signify the pointless arguments you get into with people you really care about, but no how to talk to all that well. Like the fights you get into with your lover when you both think you're right, but aren't about to concede to the other person's point.
