Christ Speaks In Reference To Modern Christians' Claims Of Persecution

lyrics

i pulled into town, first time around. i got the warmest of welcomes i'd found.
singing and palm leaves and donkeys to ride.
girl, you're a dangerous flirt. you tore my shirt, mentally broken - not physically hurt.
let's not pretend you've been crucified...

you don't know a thing about pain.

i entered the room, stuck to my tune... i did my best to be gracious and true.
guess you can't please everyone all the time.
escape from your ignorant bliss, i'll tell you this - quit judging books by their covers 'cause, miss,
you're only planting your own judas kiss.

you don't know a thing about pain.

these words are my cross, i'll pay the cost. hobble my legs and point me toward golgotha.
i'll stumble forth and take on your disease.
let's just bury this hatchet, by that knife in your back.
like the spear in my side, i hope that coat burns you bad.

you don't know a think about pain.

turn this thing into a real party, find some truth - write some scars on your body.
in the end, there're just two kinds of sinners.
ask yourself...will you be invited to heavenly dinner, girl?

may your father forgive you, for you don't know a thing about pain.

it is finished...
