Fishin' 4 Religion
Grab the hook, grab the line Grab the bait, grab the box and wait Tackle and shackle the topic the faculty has chosen Chosen by many, chosen by plenty, chosen by any Man or woman who understand The topic that's known and Go by the dock flock and clock the topic As I drop my hook and get a bite The reason I'm fishin' 4 a new religion Is my church makes me fall asleep They're praising a God that watches you weep And doesn't want you to do a damn thing about it When they want change the preacher says "shout it" Does shouting bring about change ? I doubt it All shouting does is make you lose your voice So on the dock I sit in silence Staring at a sea that's full of violence Scared to put my line in that water Coz it seems like there's no religion in there Naively so I give it another go Sitting in church hearing legitimate woes Pastor tells the lady it'll be alright Just pray so you can see the pearly gates so white The lady prays and prays and prays and prays And prays and prays and prays and prays it's everlasting "There's nothing wrong with praying ?" It's what she's asking She's asking the Lord to let her cope So one day she can see the golden ropes What you pray for God will give To be able to cope in this world we live The word "cope" and the word "change" Is directly opposite, not the same She should have been praying to change her woes But pastor said "Pray to cope with those" The government is happy with most baptist churches Coz they don't do a damn thing to try to nurture Brothers and sisters on a revolution Baptist teaches dying is the only solution Passiveness causes others to pass us by I throw my line till I've made my decision Until then, I'm still fishin' 4 religion Fishin' 4 religion, fish, believe
