Song Description

Electronic beats acoompany a church style organ. Voices come in like a choir at points to give the song a feeling of harmony. The song is a social commentary type hymnal. It is meant to be quasi-funny.

Story Behind the Song

It seems to me, these politically active groups are 'hell-bent' on making sure that GLBT people are denied equal rights under the constitution of the united states and local legislation -- and it is usually based on ignorance and fear and stubbornness to change.


O' For Christ's Sake
Give us the strength today
The Religious Right
Wants us to leave tonight

The reason is clear
Because we are queer
They think we want to infest their families and give them AIDS and all that stuff
But we know Your love is the diamond in the rough

If we see tomorrow
Would You look after us
If on chance we stray
From Your old beaten path?

This hate is so real
We all should feel
Pain for those poor folks who want to keep us from our equal rights and all that stuff
But we know Your love is the reason we stay tough

We will always love You
Even in times of need
We look on to heaven
Where we will be in peace

For on that day, we will sing praise
We will be joyful and nothing?s gonna stop our happiness and all that stuff
?Cause we know Your love is the only way

The Religious Right
Wants us to leave tonight
O? For Christ?s Sake
Give us your strength today.
