Beyond Belief

BEYOND BELIEF (Davis Jones-J Neo Marvin)

I used to be a Catholic
I married Jesus when I was ten
In a beautiful white lace dress
I loved him very much
I have a more mature attitude today

I know that he existed
I know that he was hip
I know his voice had been twisted
And I know I had given that scene the slip
I have a more mature attitude today

My mother was devoted
It got her in a fix
A choice of excommunication
Or make baby number six

My father was indifferent
She had her operation
It left her chemically unbalanced
He died alone in the kitchen
I have a more mature attitude today

I prayed a lot to Jesus
I asked to bring him back
I asked to make her happy
Jesus never had my back
I have a more mature attitude today

I learned from Aristotle
That Ethics, Logic, Passion rules
The Three Offices Of Truth, yeah!
Turns out religion is for fools

Where guilt is your savior
An excuse for some forgiveness
A scapegoated mother
Cannot ask for a witness.

I used to love Jesus
I…don’t today
I used to love Jesus…
