deep in prayer my cross to wear
i kneel upon the floor
temptations of a catholic priest aren't easy to ignore
but i can not control myself
he rips my soul apart
for one small sheep among my flock has
stolen the shepherd's heart

altar boy, altar boy
confess your sins to me
you will find the grace of god
inside my rectory

sunday mass or bible class
i catch him in my view
i close my eyes but there he lies
spread eagle on the pew
and when i see him in that frock
my concience goes araye
i'll give him some communion wine thats
spiked with spanish fly

altar boy, altar boy
is it gonna be heaven or hell
you can play my organ all night long
if you promise never to tell

our father
who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name
i could dress him up like the pope and then i'd...
oh dear god, the shame no no no
lead us not into temptation
deliver us from sin
we could pretend that he was jesus christ
and i was mary magdalene

altar boy, altar boy
confess your sins to me
you will find the grace of god
inside my rectory

oh altar boy, oh altar boy
confess your sins to me
you will find the grace of god
inside my rec...

    General Commenthow can u not know wat this song means...hehe. on the "Live at the El Rey" dvd, he does commentary with Mark Tyke and his brother Drew. During this song he says "mom doesn't really like this song." and drew goes "does she like any of your songs?" and he goes, "she tolerates some more than others, and sees how others see their funny, but this one in particular isn't a favorite" then goes on to say how this is one of his best musically written songs. hehe. its great commentary and a good concert. check it out.
