When I was young and they packed me off to school
and taught me how not to play the game,
I didn't mind if they groomed me for success,
or if they said that I was just a fool
So I left there in the morning
with their God tucked underneath my arm
their half-assed smiles and the book of rules
So I asked this God a question
and by way of firm reply,
He said I'm not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays
So to my old headmaster (and to anyone who cares):
before I'm through I'd like to say my prayers
I don't believe you:
you had the whole damn thing all wrong
He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays
Well you can excomunicate me on my way to Sunday school
and have all the bishops harmonize these lines
how do you dare tell me that I'm my Father's son
when that was just an accident of Birth
I'd rather look around me compose a better song
`cos that's the honest measure of my worth
In your pomp and all your glory you're a poorer man than me,
as you lick the boots of death born out of fear.
When I was young and they packed me off to school
and taught me how not to play the game,
I didn't mind if they groomed me for success,
or if they said that I was just a fool
So I left there in the morning
with their God tucked underneath my arm
their half-assed smiles and the book of rules
Well you can excomunicate me on my way to Sunday school
and have all the bishops harmonize these lines
When I was young and they packed me off to school
and taught me how not to play the game,
I didn't mind if they groomed me for success,
or if they said that I was just a fool
So to my old headmaster (and to anyone who cares):
before I'm through I'd like to say my prayers
Well you can excomunicate me on my way to Sunday school
and have all the bishops harmonize these lines
I don't believe you:
you had the whole damn thing all wrong
He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays
