I'm Not Jesus
Dirty little secret, dirty little lies
Say your prayers and comb your hair
Save your soul tonight

Drift among the faithful, bury your desires
Aberrations fill your head
You need a place to hide and I am

Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Do you remember me?

When your world comes crashing down, I want to be there
(Your God is looking down on me)
I'm not Jesus, Jesus wasn't there
You confess it all away but it's only shit to me
(Your God is looking down on me)
I'm not Jesus, I will not forgive

No, I won't
No, I won't

I thought you were a good man
I thought you talked to God
You Hippocratic, messianic
Child abusing-turned-satanic

Do you remember me?
Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Do you remember?
Do you remember?

When your whole world comes undone, let me be the one to say
(Your God is looking down on me)
"I'm not Jesus, you can't run away"
And the innocence you spoiled found a way to live
(Your God is looking down on me)
I'm not Jesus, I will not forgive

I will not forgive
I won't be whatever you wanted
I will not forgive
I won't be whatever you wanted

Do you remember me?
And the kid I used to be?
Not the same as I used to be
Oh, do you remember my name?

When your world comes crashing down, I want to be there
(Your God is looking down on me)
I'm not Jesus, Jesus wasn't fair
You confess it all away but it's only shit to me
(Your God is looking down on me)
I'm not Jesus, I will not
I'm not Jesus, I will not forgive
Oh, I will not forgive
No, I will not forgive
