paper jesus (album version) lyrics – staind

you take this all for granted
all the things they choose to feed you
by keeping you distracted
just long enough to bleed you dry

a reason for your anger
it’s what i need, it’s what i need
to recognize the truth
it’s what i need, it’s what i need

so burn your paper jesus
it’s what i need, it’s what i need
and own the things you do
it’s what i need, it’s what i need

question what they sell you
all the lies that they are teaching
and they’ve made a corporation
out of desperate people’s feelings of fear

a reason for your anger
it’s what i need, it’s what i need
to recognize the truth
it’s what i need, it’s what i need

so burn your paper jesus
it’s what i need, it’s what i need
and own the things you do
it’s what i need, it’s what i need

somebody chose these words for you
interpretations of the truth
somewhere behind your fear they hide
to fill the holes inside

a reason for your anger
it’s what i need, it’s what i need
to recognize the truth
it’s what i need, it’s what i need

so burn your paper jesus
it’s what i need, it’s what i need
and own the things you do
it’s what i need, it’s what i need
