I can't say that I love Jesus
That would be a hollow claim


Martha found god when she was 33
And since the day she found him she's been ignoring me
Jesus was the same age when he was crucified
Martha didn't die, she got just empty inside

Me and her, we had a good time
At museums, movies, concerts, shows
But now she’s telling me the earth’s 6000 years old
And her pastor’s telling her what she knows

Martha don't lie
Don't shut your eyes
Don't close your mind
Don't leave it behind
Don't leave logic in the dark
Don't board that ark
Martha don't lie
Don't shut your eyes

I take the high road less travelled
From LA to the woods of Maine
Through Death Valley days and starry nights
I observe my own truths all the same

There are rats in the silos
There are birds down in the wheat
There are times when the witches in the windows
Try to follow me down into the street

And I don’t lie
I don’t shut my eyes
I don’t close my mind
I don’t leave it behind
I don’t leave logic in the dark
I don’t board that ark
I don’t lie
I don’t shut my eyes

You can live your life your way
But there’s no room for Bible-beatin’ in mine
Still we have a lot in common
Like reading fiction and drinking wine

You can have your savior
But you can’t take him for a walk in the park
So you can keep your stories
And I’ll keep a light for you on in the dark

Every day without you (I listen to Slayer)
