mother said:
bow your head, young man
put your hands together
now talk to an imaginary friend
let me be a good example
of how not to live
it's okay, god forgives

father said:
it's just the way things are, son
if you don't follow my lead
you're gonna fall apart
be afraid, live in fear everyday
listen to what i say
prostrate yourself and obey

once a week
i saw you weep
it was then i knew
it was real... for you
but not for me, you see
because I refuse
to use my god as an excuse
for how i choose to be

is it possible
that your un-intellectual
arguments about life
are just a simple attempt

to quell your fears
of your own mortality

if that's the case
it's not my point to convince you
otherwise
or try to make you see it through my big brown eyes

and who's to say, anyway
that our perception of god
is the same
yeah, we both know that it's not
