    I was lied to
    The righteous will sing it, but not live it
    I've been lied to
    They shame you to death, to bring you in
    We've been lied to
    Priests say its not a sin to sex boys
    They've been lying too
    I fornicate with some girls, but that's a sin
    That's a lie too
    There being a right religion
    May be a lie too
    Just follow your heart
    And if its pure, it'll guide you
    But most are tainted
    Some get status and run with it
    Thinking they're right because they're opinionated
    I see the strides they make sometimes
    Manufactured thoughts arise
    Easily done to justify the misinterpretations' size
    Thinking that they're good people
    I can't wait to see
    But they couldn't be so judgmental and
    possibly be
    And what if Jesus isn't white
    Now do you think its right
    If any one of us would view him in a different light
    The truth is that this stuff isn't literal
    The truth's in the message because it is spiritual
    Yet still I'm lied to

    Writing for the devil it seems
    aiming your little light beam
    at what is the negative
    you should write more balanced
    what is the positive side
    your not blind
    I know you can see
    so write as if your walking
    the balance beam, you have the right
    and the left but what matters is the way
    the strainght line , its really the best way

    Max...who's writing for the "devil" and "aiming" at "what is the negative" when you are being "negative" with your comments :( Hes not BEING negative hes citing that lies are there and he refuses to become a part of it...but thats my humble opinion. In the hood i grew up in we would say..."check ya self, be fo ya wreck ya self" my brotha.
