Rebuilding Paradise we go to church just to meet who we’ll fuck til the end                                        reinterpret the bible                                    to mesh with the trends blame all our tragedies on deeds of gay men           we’re the neighbors you dream about killing                                                   on the weekend                                                                              we track the books that you read on your kindle in bed we define the word marriage much better than you trust me we’re trying we’re fishers of men but we dabble in real estate development on the weekend                                                                              cause we’re rebuilding paradise                                         one brick at a time                                 we’re rebuilding paradise                                  with fences so high We’ve been waiting patiently we’ve had our highs and lows                   now we’re rebuilding paradise                 in case he never shows                                                                              we all assume that messiah will show in our lifetime so why fight diseases they’re just doing god’s work trust me we’re trying we’re fishers of men                    but we dabble in real          estate development on the weekend                                                                              cause we’re rebuilding paradise                                         one brick at a time                                we’re rebuilding paradise                           with fences so high We’ve been waiting patiently we’ve had our highs and lows                            now we’re rebuilding paradise                                   in case he never shows

Jesus Loves Me Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so little ones to him belong they are weak but he is strong but when we die all his love will wash away and in the end all those fables fade away and we’ll never know we were alone Jesus loves me this i know for my father told me so lovely words for me to repeat a simple faith he passed down to me but when we die all his love will wash away we’ll never ride in those chariots of fire and in the end all those fables fade away and we’ll never know we were alone mother loved me this I know everyday she told me so last few days she struggled to speak as she passed she whispered to me when we die all his love will wash away we’ll never ride in those chariots of fire and in the end all those fables fade away and we’ll never know we were alone   so when i die you can leave me in the rain you can bury me or burn me on a pyre i’ll be gone and finally free there’s no ghost and no soul they have no control did you ever know we were alone? jesus loves me this i know
