Amos 5 - Lyrics

We don't want religion
No, no, no
A substitute for the real thing
Ruthless in fake and control
Charismatic or traditional
Still the same deadly leaven
Standing in the way
Hindering those that in honesty
Want to get to Heaven
Reach heaven
Yeah

Comes dressed
Like an angel
Knows how to
Do the "jesustalk"
Tricking those who's
Out for a serious walk
Putting us to sleep in a
Churchy lulla lulla lullaby
Religious politics sending
Millions to die
Wake up or we go down
To the songs of that
Lukewarm sound

I want justice
I want justice
Fairness, justice
Thats all I want
Thats what I want
Oceans of it

Don't believe the lies
God says: I can't stand
Your religious meetings
I'm fed up with
Your conferences
And boring sermons
I'm tired of your image making
Pretentious slogans and goals
I've had all I can take of
Your noisy ego-music
Sing TO me for a change

I want justice
I, I want
I want justice
I want fairness
Oceans of it
Thats what I want
Thats ALL I want

And we've lost it
Yes we did
And we don't
Even see it
For the sake
Of pleasing man
Is it worth it
In the end
It's your life
We are talking about
Our own existence now
If we only knew
How we broke his heart
And left the truth
Honesty, yeah
Honesty in you and me
How we lost it
On the way
Dare to say
Yeah

I, I want justice
Yesterdays manna
Can't satisfy
I want justice
That's what I want
What I want
What I want
Yeah
Don't stand in the way
They must see him
Blow that
Smoke-screen away
We don't want you
To take his place
And covering his
Beautiful face
Don't be mad if I
Speak the truth to thee
Let them see Jesus
The real one
In you and me
