Plastic Jesus Lyrics

I met a man named Jesus, once when I was really high
He seemed like a nice fellow, he seemed like a really good guy
And I went to his house on Sunday and I didn’t see the same, no
God I can’t believe how many people have died in Christ’s name

Lie, lie, lie, cheat and steal
Suffer the little children and give em’ a feel
And my friend Jesus said these Christians are insane
God, I’m not a plastic Jesus for them to shame
I’m not a plastic Jesus for their self-righteous games

I went back to the house of Jesus on the next Sunday
And the people of the church and their pastor turned me away
They said I was a sinner and I’d burn in hell… oh well
I didn’t believe the hate they had to sell

And my friend Jesus said these Christians are my shame
Oh, I’m not a plastic Jesus for them to frame
No I’m not a plastic Jesus for their self-righteous games

The church said they hated me and all gays and Jews
Seemed they only cared about passing their plate and collecting dues
They said they hated everyone not like them, what a sin
And I told them my friend Jesus said they should be like him
And I told them my friend Jesus said they should be like him

Lie, lie, lie, cheat and steal
Suffer the little children and give em’ a feel
And my friend Jesus said these Christians are insane
I’m not a plastic Jesus who’ll forgive their blame
No I’m not a plastic Jesus for them to shame

Lie, lie, lie, cheat and steal
Suffer the little children and give em’ a feel
Suffer the little children and give em’ a feel…
