lyrics

Holy Toast

In people without religion
In steeples crowded with pigeons
In visions of evil
Through the key hole out of the prison
Without a decision, fishing, in a father that listens
In a tower, around a collar, in Obama’s position
For the power, dollars, division, and the honor it’s given
In a martyr, in women, in Shawn Carter, in all children
Shrouded in Turin
Burning in shrubs, learning to love, rounding a turban
On the curb, in the club

They say Americans believe in a savior
Is it in our heritage or in our behavior
So many were beat, shot, hung by their neighbor
Children are in danger becoming a danger
They say Americans believe in a savior
Is it in our heritage or in our behavior
So many were beat, shot, hung by their neighbor
Children are in danger becoming a danger

With a bourbon and drunk,
In sermons, in a permanent slump determined to flunk
As a vermin making earnings from trunks
Serving the junks
Cus I need Him most, bleeding on the cement
In a sea of demons- beaming
Being treated with a chemo dose
Seated with a vino within a scene of latinos
He was seen hosting a feast in His medieval clothes
Cleaning all our feet with soap, speaking to ghosts
Leading a pope, beaten and broke
Even on a piece of toast

They say Americans believe in a savior
Is it in our heritage or in our behavior
So many were beat, shot, hung by their neighbor
Children are in danger becoming a danger
They say Americans believe in a savior
Is it in our heritage or in our behavior
So many were beat, shot, hung by their neighbor
Children are in danger becoming a danger

Leapers freed surfs
Records T-shirts
Breath burns knees hurt
Lessons in rebirth
Lessons in rebirth

And He the most eating with the least
In a fetus, in a golden fleece
Meeting with the chief, with elitists
In a genius, when that athlete was defeated
In the math, in an atom blast, every time my team wins
To hide a lie and to achieve spins
For me to be idolized, on a drive, for my own reasons
Because they tell me it’s a lesson in our rebirth
Because in hell our breath burns and our knees hurt

They say Americans believe in a savor

They say Americans believe in a savior
Is it in our heritage or in our behavior
So many were beat, shot, hung by their neighbor
Children are in danger becoming a danger
They say Americans believe in a savior
Is it in our heritage or in our behavior
So many were beat, shot, hung by their neighbor
Children are in danger becoming a danger
