lyrics

Well come-a Sunday morning meeting time
I laid my tithe down on the plate
And while they drive their church bought Cadillacs
My monthly rent check gets delayed by days

Yeah I gave everything I had
To people just like you

And it's sad to say but it's all a ruse
So I'll never trust another one like you

Can you really buy a miracle?
And who in heaven sets the going rate?
Can religion make the crippled walk?
Or are some tricks here merely being staged?

Yeah, I gave everything I had
To people just like you

And it's sad to learn
That's it so untrue

So I'll never trust a -- another one like you

Oh no, don't quote works from the bible
For shame on all the liars,
God ain't talking to you -- no, not you
It's so hard to bear your tired recitals
When you pander self-denial
I'm tired of listening
I'm through -- with you

For if you really were a saint
This ain't a picture I would paint

Yeah it's maddening ... Call it "God abuse"

So I never trust another one like you
No, I'll never trust another one like you.

I get so angry at your "misdirection"
It's not a business when you're saving souls
You're next to nothing 'bout the plight of others
You're only putting on a glitzy show

For if there really were such miracle men
Then dirty money would be no concern
It's manufacturing of golden idols
By cheatin' holy roller charlatans

Because I gave everything I had
To people, just like you

And it's sad to say
Folks just can't see through

But I'll never trust another one like you
No, I'll never trust another one like

about

Kevin White

After a stint in Special Ops, working covertly in the world's most dangerous hot spots, a chance meeting with a Zulu medicine man launched an interest in music.

For the healing power of song, as evidenced by Coca Cola's "We'd like to teach the world to sing", followed up by Pepsi's "The world sings out of tune", is instrumental-not in a literal sense, but a musical one; literally. Please enjoy.
