lyrics

A pile of sins in my memory bin
Want to come out to play again
I see silhouettes on the TV screen
Of beautiful women I can’t unsee
Stacks of cash that’ll never be mine
Because I’m too lazy to put in the time
I’d rather just sit and eat all the food
I’m a bottomless pit of sloth and lewd

Satan punishes with temptation
The law of the land deals castration
Time to get beyond good and evil
There is no difference between God and the devil!

Just learning how to sit beside myself
Learning how to put my sins on the shelf
Boxing lessons from Siddhartha Gautama
Self-defense taught by Jesus Christ’s mama
Within the Ramayana I seek my soul,
‘Cuz I’ve got to climb out of this sinful hole
All these philosophies are so meant
For sending beyond that evil serpent!

I’m fighting, I’m fighting against the devil
But what do you do when he’s on your level
I’m fighting, I’m fighting against the devil
In my head, my thoughts disheveled
Caught between two paranoiac poles
Convinced that I’m fighting for my soul
Bouncing back and forth in a pinball machine
A black and white future is all I can dream!

Satan punishes with temptation
The law of the land deals castration
Time to get beyond good and evil
There is no difference between God and the devil!

These faiths have to me bestowed discipline
Shown me how to fight Satan
But now I realize there’s no difference
Between good and evil; it’s all violence
I renounce your gods and your devils
I seek inner peace, and I’m not gonna wrestle
Religion’s manufactured by the state
To keep their control of my fate!
