Religious Man

Who is that religious man
Who puts you down every week
Making you feel guilty
Making you weak
This self righteous religious man
Without no love
So much hateful speaking

His son was arrested yesterday
For robbery
His daughter's pregnancy is covered up
And he smokes cigarettes in his basement

He can't wait to hear your sins
Looks how righteous he thinks he is
As he chews you up and spits you out
All in the name of Jesus
Who he claims he loves
    Another broken reed walks away
    Scorched by the fires of hell
But there will be a judgment day
