If There is a God

by John Laurence



Clearly I was pretty angry about so called 'religious' people when I wrote this. All the characters in the lyrics were real. My opinions have not changed since!


Ya ya ya etc

Preacher in the street
Yelling in my face
Stick your bible up your ass
And join the human race

If there is a god
If the scriptures are true
If there really is a god
Why would he make us put up with assholes like you?

Leader of a congregation
But one of them is gay
You told him to kill himself
‘stead of living nature’s way


You are a priest
A man your people trust
They never will believe
Their children felt your lust


We live in freedom
Free in what we think and say
You preach to your assassins
With our lives we must pay

Ya ya ya etc
