Wasted Time

You believe what you want to baby
But you break me up
When you say you’ll save me
Your talk sounds cheaper daily
Imperious and proud and empty

You’re just wasted words
And waste time
Decorating that grave of mine

You preach doom all day
But the day rolls by
Like a lonely cloud
In a clear blue sky
That disappears and leaves you dry
No evidence and no alibi

For all your wasted words
And wasted time
Decorating that grave of mine

Antagonists control the wind
From the Holy Land
To the Vatican
From Faith to Faith,
From sin to sin
In a game no one can win

You’re just wasted words
And wasted time,
Decorating that grave of mine

I’m a big bang baby,
I’m born again
Life is too short
To play pretend
Let the devil make
Room for one more
When he sees the things
You use god for
When I pray
I pray you get to heaven
And they say
“No way go back try again”

Every penny you take
From the poor
Every kid you take
Behind closed doors
A suicide a holy war
Blame the freaks
And the gays and the poor
All the things
You use god for
All the things
You use god for

In all of your wasted time
Decorating that grave of mine

And when I pray
I pray you get to heaven
And they say,
“No way go back and try again”
