TITLE: Hum V Jesus

Your Hum V Jesus don’t cut it with me.
Your diamond encrusted prayer books,
pious acts and sideways looks don’t touch my pain.
The demon in me plays addictions winning game.
And while you dine with your lunch bunch,
sip chardonnay and talk about warm beach holidays,
I sit inside the bus stop, waiting for the rain to stop,
dying for my next hit, and feeling like a piece of shit.
So when I show up, you gonna grow up,
walk up, cough up some loose change
and be Jesus in a real way? Let me eat and drink today?
Or will you just drive by while I’m contemplating suicide?
‘cause Jesus was a walking man.
Jesus walked and talked and sat down
by the side of the road, in the ditch. Jesus wasn’t rich.
Jesus handed out life and bread and fish.
And that’s the Jesus that I gotta know,
so let me say it again real slow;
Your good intentions aren’t worth much.
Don’t pass by. Stop. Tell me how to be free,
‘cause I’m a lost cause without Jesus in me.
