He was nobody’s fool he always knew what he was
Just a bunch of molecules no spirits or souls to speak of
He turned his back on God
Spat on those offering His love
He was in charge of his life
Til something happened to his wife
No one’s an atheist when you’re looking at death in the face
Sit down blubbering trying to pray before it’s too late
Trying to jump out of a fiery plane into the pearly gates
Jesus is so real when you’re looking at hell in the face
He was nobody’s fool but now he’s a puppet with strings cut off
Sitting on her deathbed trying to strike a deal with God
He doesn’t know where to start
Promise to go to church forever
Light one hundred candles a day
To make the reaper go away


from Hardcore for Jesus (recordings 1985​-​1989), released October 6, 2006
