Church & State

The wearin' of the orange
Or the wearin' of the green
Neither one's for me.
There's not much in between.

The choice I make,
To you, may seem a little odd.
I'll be wearin' blue
For the glory of my God.

Not for me the priesthood,
Nor did I aspire to the bench
My Lord did not extract from me
A vow I wouldn't wench.

This God of mine gave me a gift.
The things I do I choose.
The rules are really simple.
If I lie to me, I lose.

I'm not surprised that Church and State
Have rules way more complex
Are they in bed together?
If so, it's not for sex.

The bond they share is authority,
They claim they're without fault.
That may be true, am I confused?
It feels like an assault!
