Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Separated, I cut myself clean from a past 
That comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force 
And a grace that replaced all the me I divorced

I saw a man with a tat on his big fat belly
It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
It took me a while to catch what it said, 
'Cause I had to match the rhythm of his belly with my head
"Jesus Saves" is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
Now he stood on a box in the middle of the city and he claimed he had a dream

He said:
What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
What will people do when they find that it's true?
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak 
There ain't no disguising the truth
There ain't no disguising the truth
No, I ain't into hiding the truth

Kamikaze, my death is gain 
I've been marked by my Maker, peculiar display (peculiar display)
The high and lofty, they see me as weak 
But I won't live and die for the power they seek, yeah

There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke made the people assume 
There wasn't too much left in the upper room
With skins on his back and hair on his face, 
They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
See the Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak 
Until the king took the head of this Jesus freak

What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
What will people do when they find that it's true?
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak 
There ain't no disguising the truth
No, I ain't into hiding the truth

People say I'm strange, 
Does it make me a stranger 
My best friend was born in a manger
People say I'm strange, 
Does it make me a stranger 
My best friend was born in a manger

What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
What will people do when they find that it's true?
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak 
There ain't no disguising the truth

What will people think (what will people think?)
What will people do (what will people do?)
I don't really care (what else can I say?)
There ain't no disguising the truth (Jesus is the way)
