16. Failure To Excommunicate

The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek
by Relient K



 

It's the principle
It's the issue
That your principal would dismiss you
Because you don't fit into that all-American Box
That coffin created for creative thought
It's disgusting his priorities
And how we're entrusting him with authority
His gavel's gone down before he looked in your heart
He finished this racism before he reached the start

Jesus loved the outcasts
He loves the ones the world just loves to hate
And as long as there's a heaven, there'll be a failure to excommunicate

The world just keeps you at an arm's length
Every week you work up the strength to fight the flames that are hurled
Let your faith shine right through
You know it's the world versus Jesus and you
It's disgusting, their priorities
And how we're entrusting them with authority
Their gavel's gone down before they looked in your heart
They finished this racism before they reached the start

Written by Matthew Thiessen 2001 Gotee Music (BMI) - Admin by EMI-CMP
