Honor thy father, it says in the book
So will I go to hell if I don’t give in?
Is it true that this is allowed?
If I stand up, is that a sin?
I kept my mouth shut, but somehow
The churchgoers knew it all
So they frowned and they prayed a lot
But never said a word
Or made the call

You break the bread but do you drink the wine
Should I honor my father to continue a lie?
You faith says to help the ones who’re in pain
Yet they’ve left me out in the rain -

Did your God ask for this silence?
Did your God give me this pain?
Will your God give him easy forgiveness?
Will your God drive me insane?
Should the “faithful” stand by silent?
Do the “faithful” take his side?
Will the “faithful” let me suffer
Will the “faithful” tell me lies?

You break the bread but do you drink the wine
Must I honor my father and continue this lie?
Your faith asks that you inflict no pain
Yet I’m standing out here in the rain
