  • Some will sing a song
    To reel 'em in
    It's a song I sung before
    And a song I'm gonna sing again
    I mean every word
    I don't mean a single one of them
    Oh Lord, make me pure
    But not yet

    Tell a joke
    Tell it twice
    If no one else is laughing there why am I
    I split myself both times and laugh till I cry
    Oh Lord, please make me pure
    But not yet

    I don't have to try
    I just dial it in
    I've never found a job that for me was worth bothering
    I got a ton of selfish genes and lazy bones
    Beneath this skin
    Oh Lord, make me pure
    But not yet

    Smoking kills
    Sex sells
    I've got one hand in my pocket but the other one looks cool as hell
    I know I'm gonna die so my revenge is living well
    Oh Lord, make me pure
    But not yet

    I stopped praying
    So I hope this song will do
    I wrote it all for you
    I'm not perfect but you don't mind that, do you?
    I know you're there to pull me through, aren't you?

    So I look for love
    I like the search
    And I'll be standing for election all across the known universe
    Let every president get the country she deserves
    Oh Lord, make me pure
    But not yet

    And I've been seeing
    Somebody's wife
    She said she'd leave him for me and I said that wasn't wise
    You can't lie to a liar because of all lies
    Oh Lord, please make me pure
