I’m Sorry (That in the Body of Christ I’ve Been the Asshole)

Chorus:
I’m sorry that in the body of Christ I’ve been the asshole.
I’m sorry that in the body of Christ I’ve been the asshole.
I’m sorry for the twisted little shadows in my soul.
I’m sorry that in the body of Christ I’ve been the asshole.

I was born and raised in Freeport, West Virginia.
I was born and raised to believe in the God of Fear.
I had a bumper sticker stating whereabouts in the case of the Rapture.
But the rapture was a factory recall, now I’m feeling queer.

repeat chorus

When the rapture come, well you know I was so happy,
Because I knew I was heading for Heaven forevermore.
Then a man at the stand said I needed this software update.
Because I couldn’t download this thing called a metaphor.

repeat chorus

Now I’m sitting in this Jiffy Lube waiting room outside of Heaven.
Jerry Fallwell is eating them Funyuns and talking wise.
He said, “I’ve spent my life pointing out other people’s sawdust,
When I couldn’t even see this Redwood in my eyes.”

repeat chorus
