Mother Mary come for me
For I am a wicked child
I have sinned and I am so confused
For I am a wicked child
I am a wicked child

I am the Devil's son
And I wish I could be good
I walk the crooked mile
Yeah I wish I could be good
I wish I could be good

If I could have kept on the straight and narrow
If I could have kept on the straight and narrow
But God broke your heart
God broke your heart

Now I wake up in the night
He's tugging at my arms and legs
Like I was a marionette
Send baby Jesus
To radiate his lie
To radiate his lie

    General Commentthanks fake addict. but anyway to everyone its really hard to understand some things radiohead writes about if you dont read and look in the Bible and give it a shot. I mean Christianity is responsible for alot of bad things that have happened in the world, but that isnt Christianity, that is a fake Christianity that I have a problem with and any true Christian should have a problem with. True Christians dont endorse wars, true christians dont force beliefs on people, true christians dont worry as much about politics unless they are keeping peace and helping people, true christians should care about other people and not themselves, serving yourself never lasts, but God tells us to love our neighbor as ourself if we do that, that lasts. Life isnt what you can do for yourself, but what you can do for anyone and everybody else. Our flesh is at war with our spirit. My friends, and most of all fellow radiohead fans... If there is a 1 in a million chance im right, dont you owe it to yourself to find out?
    We hate this world we live in, so we must do our best to fix it, trust in Jesus, let him radiate his light.


    Live Forever
