TEN PERCENT

Organised religion has a lot to answer for. The suffering, misery, judgement of innocent people, taking of 10% of the poorest member's salaries and buying of private jets, the abuse of children ... the list is endless. This song is not about faith - each to their own and your relationship with your God is your own freedom and right. We are not atheists and understand faith. We just don't do the being judged and preached to thing, and in return we do our best to refrain ourselves. Life is too short not to be free to live it - and we do.

So, we're calling out what we see, what many people see, and partly why Western organised religion is in such decline.

LYRICS

When you hit the sack at night
Does your conscience bother you?
Does your overdaft of love
Drain the joy from what you do

Many years of tears, deceptions
Line the course you're set to take
All your wealth and shallow charms
Will be the last thing you forsake

We're open Sundays, come at 10 and take a pew

We got the hypocrites - we got the lowlifes
The dodgy dealers and cheating house wives
Ten percent deal - did we mention?
We can fast track your redemption

When your past affects your future
Do you file appeals to suit?
Is your his-tory a rewrite
Of the truth that's haunting you

Many moments mark the man
Some cuts can slice down to a soul
You can say it never happened
Just pretend you're in control

We're open Sundays, come at 10 and take a pew

We got the hypocrites - we got the lowlifes
The dodgy dealers and cheating house wives
Ten percent deal - did we mention?
We can fast track your redemption

Oh yeah, sure we're just as screwed up as you
You'll fit in fine as you do as we do.

We got the hypocrites - we got the lowlifes
The dodgy dealers and cheating house wives
Ten percent deal - did we mention?
We can fast track your redemption.

We got the pond scum - we got the freak shows
The judges sidekicks and sexual no-gos
Its a win-win - we're a great fit
We're the shovel you're the shit
