notes:
 Someone said they saw Jesus in a bar
sittin' in the corner, drinkin' whiskey from a jar.
He was hear to mutter drunkenly:
"Father, why have you forsaken me?
You never write. You never bother.
Jesus Christ, you're a horrible father."

People live and die in the name
of a pretty dangerous game.
The best of intentions of go away
when people wrap their hands around it.

Someone said they saw Jesus in the street
going through dumpsters and washin' people's feet.
He stunk to high heaven and he looked like hell,
and he was barely scratchin' the surface of smell.
"Father, what's goin' through yer head?
You nail me to a cross and leave me for dead..."

People live and die in the name
of a pretty dangerous game.
The best of intentions of go away
when people wrap their hands around it.

Someone said they saw Jesus in a bar
sittin' in the corner, drinkin' whiskey from a jar.
He smelled of vomit. He smelled of shit,
and he didn't seem to care one little bit.
"Father, what the hell were you thinking?"
he muttered over the whiskey he was drinking...
