Song Title: The Confession
"Forgive me Father, for I am about to sin"
Smiling like a glad man
Frowning like a sad man
Feeling like a goddamn fool
It's a con game
And they say that God will forgive me
Amnesty for repenting here
How can he?
Hello father, Father please help me,
Tell me that God will forgive me now!
Forgive me father I have sinned
I did another preacher in at confession
What's the matter now?
Mr. Holier than thou
Self righteous fool
I'll show you religion
Was about 3 years ago
I had a daughter, 12 years old
She was my life
Taught her to obey the cross
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
And the Good Book
And your type
She became his virgin prize
Dead and raped and sacrificed!
Behind closed doors
In darkened rooms
I'm so sick and tired
So you speak for God here?
What does he say now?
Is he gonna help you?
Will he forgive...me?
Father I see you wanna know what lies behind this icy stare
Don't dig my head for remorse in this, trust me it's not there
I'd rather talk about you and where you fit in this
And why you all act like God and all that pertains to it
You say that you speak in his name but how can you forgive
The rapists and the killers? I don't believe God ever did
What I need to know here is why God only talks through you
I can assure you, Mr. Holy Man, God talks to me too
Just not in a million dollar church with gold frames
He speaks to me any place, to God it's all the same
Have you heard enough information?
Hey father are you afraid of me?
You should be
I've said all that I need to!
Thank you for letting me speak my peace
It's a wonder
Get down on your knees!
That's right you better plead, it's the last time
You will pray
Tell me do, do you forgive me?
Tell me do, do you still love me father??
I need to know
Has my soul been sold?
Is God here with you?
Does he love me?
Does he love me?
Does he love me, too?
