My Mum gave me The Holy Bible at a very early age

I read it cover to cover, every word on every page

I realised quickly that whenever she was centre stage

She would use it as a weapon against me in her rage

Bring your case for libel

I'm about to burn the Bible

'Cos there is no higher purpose

And belief in it will curse us

When we die we die

We don't head to a heaven in the sky

We get laid to rot not rest

And every word I ever read I detest

My Mum gave me the Bible to give herself some space

It wasn't 'cos she loved me, I could see it in her face

She never wanted me and tried to hide every trace

'Cos whenever we sat for food, nobody ever said grace

I was the kid that had a chance but was never given one

I got threatened with the fist and from it I would run

We could have shared a life of laughs, happiness and fun

I could have been the shining Bible example of a son

Bring your case for libel

I'm about to burn the Bible

'Cos there is no higher purpose

And belief in it will curse us

When we die we die

We don't head to a heaven in the sky

We get laid to rot not rest

And every word I ever read I detest

Since adulthood everything I have cursed with my belief

That having faith in things turns them things into a thief

And I am sick and tired of life right to my back teeth

I do not have the strength left to continuously fight my grief

Instead I harbour anger and resentment inside a rage

That was staring from the Bible in every word on every page

And now I settle into myself at an older and wiser age

There is no measurement to my temper and no defining gauge

Bring your case for libel

I'm about to burn the Bible

'Cos there is no higher purpose

And belief in it will curse us

When we die we die

We don't head to a heaven in the sky

We get laid to rot not rest

And every word I ever read I detest

The chapter and verse

The lifelong curse

Things just get worse

Hurry up with my fucking hearse

Yes I am diverse

No I'm not perverse

Every word's a fucking curse

Every chapter and every verse...
