The Mere 03:30
I wanna be first and I want lots of power You don't need any other, I'm the man of the hour I want all these people, my little disciples As long as they bring me nickels, noses and eyeballs And I'll say I'm holy and I can be blameless As long as my enemies all remain nameless I look at the Son and I look in the mirror And wonder which one that I'm getting nearer I don't know what's right and what's me anymore And I don't know if I'm meant to feel anymore When do you think the truth will reach here? 'Cuz I'm being taken over by the mere Life's about music and less about worship It's all about programs and entrepreneurship But it doesn't matter, 'cuz we're packed on Sunday We're next to a Starbucks, can be seen from the freeway And my biggest weapon is my congregation They'll do what I tell them 'cuz I'm a sensation I look at the Son and I look in the mirror And wonder which one I'm getting nearer I don't know what's right and what's me anymore And I don't know if I'm meant to feel anymore When do you think the truth will reach here? 'Cuz I'm being taken over by the mere I give up my tithes and my seldom offerings And that buys me out of ever, actually serving Now, I am a saint and I am a sinner But everything's cool as long as I get my dinner I don't know what's right and what's me anymore And I don't know if I'm meant to feel anymore When do you think the truth will reach here? 'Cuz I'm being taken over by the mere

about

Parody of "The Fear" by Lily Allen, telling the cautionary, patchwork story of a wayward pastor who no longer seeks first the Kingdom of God but goes after the worldly, sensual experience of churchianity for his own glory.
