I tried and I tried to get God on my side,
but he never did like the way I roll.

Lord, he knows I get down. Oh, and I stay down.
I'm gonna have to save my own.

I grew up in the choir, singin' psalms to inspire
God's lost children and make them feel fine.

I drank blood from a chalice in a big, shiny palace,
but now I crave somethin' stronger than wine.


I tried to get right. I cried trough the night.
I even lied to get beside that dude.

But, he knows how it is. Lord, he knows I'm addicted
to that old fashioned, sweet passion fruit.


So, I traded my lyre for a harp of desire.
My heart is empty, but my glass is half full.

I need brimstone and fire for these old men in the mire,
to make my heartbreakin', hard rock'n'roll.
