Lyrics
-INTRO-
-VERSE 1-
You take this all for granted,
All the things they choose to feed you,
By keeping you distracted,
Just long enough to bleed you dry.
-CHORUS-
A reason for your anger,
It's what I need, it's what I need
To recognize the truth.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
So burn your paper Jesus.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
And own the things you do.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
-VERSE 2-
Question what they tell you,
All the lies that they are teaching.
And they made a corporation
Out of desperate people's feelings of fear.
-CHORUS-
A reason for your anger,
It's what I need, it's what I need
To recognize the truth.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
So burn your paper Jesus.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
And own the things you do.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
-BRIDGE-
Somebody chose these words for you,
Interpretations of the truth.
Somewhere behind your fear they hide,
To fill the holes inside.
-CHORUS-
A reason for your anger,
It's what I need, it's what I need
To recognize the truth.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
So burn your paper Jesus.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
And own the things you do.
It's what I need, it's what I need.
