lyrics

i grew up with a church next door
and a church right down the street
the bible was a stepping stone
but i had slippery feet

you were jehovah witness
your mama put it in your baby food
you didn't stand up for the pledge of allegiance
and you didn't play sports in school

the christian kids were the street-punk kids
rebelling against normal haircuts
singing angry songs about the price of sin
but when they closed their eyes to pray
my mind took me some place far away
away from their small minds
and out of my small mind

and if you're looking for me, god
i'm sleepin' in on sunday
