"Should I Call You Jesus?" as written by and Beverley/vale Myers....
Religions all around the world
Every man, every woman
Every want to be martyr
We have to learn, to learn
The way we need to live together

If the planet earth stopped revolving
Would religion really matter anymore?
And if Jerusalem began dissolving
You'd see the man from Salt Lake City
At your door

I believe
I believe
That there's so much more
Than we can see
I believe
I believe
That there's more to life
There's more to life than this

Should I call you Jesus?
Or should I call you Buddha
Don't you know Jehovah
He read the kabbala
Should I talk to Allah?
Does it really matter?
God is god
By any god given name

If the Vatican built all the temples
Would confession drive the innocent insane?
And if charity organized religion
would there be wealth enough
To chant away the day

I believe
I believe
That there's more to life
There's more to life than this

Should I call you Jesus?
Or should I call you Buddha
Don't you know Jehovah?
He read the kabbala
Should I talk to Allah?
Does it really matter?
God is god
By any god given name

Some people, some people
Say he won't answer
I say that the question should change

Our father who art in heaven
Ancient omnipresent
Hallowed be thy name
Legendary reincarnation
Chameleon of faith
Untruth Man made
Our father who art in heaven
If I get your name wrong
Will you turn me away?

Should I call you Jesus?
Or should I call you Buddha
Don't you know Jehovah?
He read the kabbala
Should I talk to Allah?
Does it really matter?
God is god
By any god given name
Religion isn't hate
Religion isn't war
Genocide, brutal or cruel

It doesn't kill
Discriminate
It isn't vicious
And it doesn't violate

It isn't massacre
Bloodshed
Conflict or slaughter

Barbaric terror
Barbaric torture
Tyranny
Dictatorship
Or fear

Religions all around the world
Every man, every woman
Every want to be martyr
We have to learn, to learn
The way we need to live together

I ask only one question
Should I call you Jesus?
Does it really matter?

Jesus come over here, have a beer!

    General CommentWell it's a question of faith without sounding like a complete heretic, obviously.
    But the version on my CD has slightly diff. lyrics:
    It doesn't kill
    Or violate
    It isn't vicious
    Full of hate

    Then there's some words at the end that are edited out altogether. Weird.
