Bad Religion

Album: Channel Orange (2012)
  • Taxi driver
    You're my shrink for the hour
    Leave the meter running
    It's rush hour
    So take the streets if you wanna
    Just outrun the demons, could you?
    He said allahu Akbar, I told him don't curse me
    But boy you need prayer, I guess it couldn't hurt me
    If it brings me to my knees
    It's a bad religion

    This unrequited love
    To me it's nothing but
    A one-man cult
    And cyanide in my Styrofoam cup
    I could never make him love me
    Never make him love me
    Love me
    Love me

    Taxi driver
    I swear I've got three lives
    Balanced on my head like steak knives
    I can't tell you the truth about my disguise
    I can't trust no one
    And you say allahu Akbar, I told him don't curse me
    But boy you need prayer, I guess it couldn't hurt me
    If it brings me to my knees
    It's a bad religion

    This unrequited love
    To me it's nothing but
    A one-man cult
    And cyanide in my Styrofoam cup
    I could never make him love me
    Never make him love me

    It's a bad religion
    To be in love with someone
    Who could never love you
    Only bad, only bad religion
    Could have me feeling the way I doWriter/s: Charles Gambetta, Christopher Breaux, Kevin Ristro, Waynne Nugent
