LEFTOVER JESUS

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I couldn't help but notice
When you tried to demonize
Those who disagree with you
As having Satan's eyes

Like I said, I noticed
You left some Jesus on your plate
I got set to wondering
Was this a trick of fate?

See, I could use some Jesus
The one that helps the poor
The one that says "do not judge"
The one you showed the door

The one who offered comfort
To those in such great need
Since you don't seem to use Him much
I was hoping to set Him free

(chorus)
We're serving
Leftover Jesus, the part that they don't use
Leftover Jesus, the one who has the blues
Leftover Jesus, we took him off the cross
Leftover Jesus, don't forget to floss

Angry, violent Jesus
Can go most anywhere
He can go to Mexico
And wrassle with a bear

He can go to Mecca
And shake an angry fist
He can go to Temple
And then get really pissed

(chorus)
We're serving
Leftover Jesus, the part that they don't use
Leftover Jesus, the one who has the blues
Leftover Jesus, we took him off the cross
Leftover Jesus, don't forget to floss

His followers lost his trail
Way back in way back when
He bodily arose
Into space he went flyin'

But never, every worry
His Words were written down
Some are better than others
And some you just flush down

(chorus)
We're serving
Leftover Jesus, the part that they don't use
Leftover Jesus, the one who has the blues
Leftover Jesus, we took him off the cross
Leftover Jesus, don't forget to floss

I couldn't help but notice
When you tried to demonize
Those who disagree with you
As having Satan's eyes

Like I said, I noticed
You left some Jesus on your plate
I got set to wondering
Was this a trick of fate?

See, I could use some Jesus
The kind that helps the poor
The one that says "do not judge"
The one you showed the door

The one who offered comfort
To those in such great need
Since you don't seem to use him much
I was hoping to set him free

(chorus)
We're serving
Leftover Jesus, the part that they don't use
Leftover Jesus, the one who has the blues
Leftover Jesus, we took him off the cross
Leftover Jesus, don't forget to floss

I love it.
I want to run to Colorado and sing it to Mr Dobson until he falls on his knees and begs Gods forgiveness like Saul did on the road to Damascus.
