Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah
Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah

You're the fuel to the fire
You're the weapons of war
You're the irony of justice
And the father of law

I've been waiting for awhile to meet you
For the chance to shake your hand
To give you thanks for all the suffering you command
And when all is over and we return to dust
Who will be my judge and which one do I trust

Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah
Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah

You're the champion of sorrow
You're the love and the pain
You're the fighter of evil
Yet you're one in the same

I've been waiting for awhile to meet you
For the chance to shake your hand
To give you thanks for all the suffering you command
And when all is over and we return to dust
Who will be my judge and which one do I trust?

Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah
Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
Turnin' the other cheek aside
We all God's children, the giver of love
But only we will survive

Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah
Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah

Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah
Ah, ah, oh, oh
Ah, ah, yeah

    General CommentScott was raised Catholic and still goes to mass on Sundays from time to time. He is a practicing Catholic. He believes in God, as A Song for Sleeping can attest to, and he's a huge fan of Notre Dame (Catholic school and catholic history). He also sings in HIG about how his dead brother "always went to mass". He also sings Be Not Afraid in HIG, a traditional Catholic hymn. Scott believes in God and I don't even think he really has an issue with organized religion. I can't speak for how he felt about religion when Core came out though. Naked Sunday definitely has anti God/anti religious lyrics... but remember "Sex Type Thing" off that record was another song not meant to be taken as literal feelings Scott had. He was putting himself in the mind of a macho alpha male pig. He easily could've been putting himself in "Naked Sunday" in the place of a man questioning his faith. That's what I think the song is about, ultimately, a person who had faith at one point but is now questioning it.

    Interesting title, by the way, "Naked Sunday". Mass is on Sunday. We were created naked, but when Adam/Eve betrayed God they were shamed by this nakedness. It's possible Scott was questioning religion at the time he wrote the song, but a lot has changed in his life since then
