From the recording Shallow Roots

Lyrics

He use to be my best friend
We would talk all night long
When I'd see him every weekend
He would teach me right from wrong

He said worship and obey
He said he'll show me the way
He said worship and obey
He said he'll show me the way

He teased me with love
Then he took it away
Held it over my head
And said you better pray

He liked to get me on my knees
He liked to make me beg please
He liked to get me on my knees
He liked to make me beg please

His name is Jesus
He's got quite an ego
He claims that he freed us
He don't want you to know
All the contradictions in his bullshit system
But I guess that happens when you preach fiction

No longer will I be his slave
No longer looking for the love he never gave
No longer will I be his slave
No longer looking for the love he never gave

He said worship and obey
He said he'll show me the way
He liked to get me on my knees
He liked to make me beg please
No longer will I be his slave
No longer looking for the love he never gave

He said worship and obey
He said he'll show me the way
He liked to get me on my knees
He liked to make me beg please
No longer will I be his slave
No longer looking for the love he never gave
