Re​-​reading the Bible

from Punk Heart by Short Hand



So when you're young you had to have it
Every time you went to church
You learned to believe it, word for word
It looked different than other books
Your parents underlined whole sections of it
And when you're older it divides the family

And everyone has got good intentions
There's no intent to make life miserable
But things happen people don't understand

And every person deserves to make their own life
Everyone deserves to be who they want to be
Regardless of the consequences

But just because we want and deserve
Something from life doesn't mean we'll get it
Or anything similar

And all of the stories tell something bitter
From Genesis to the New Testament
You soak it up, you soak it up

And even as Saul is becoming Paul
Even as my fists ball
We are reading and reading the bible
We're both reading and re-reading the bible
