What do you get when you pray
A handful of nothing but shame
So why don't you get off your knees
And go to the door with your keys

The cancer is eating your brain
But you'd rather die here in vain
Can't take what it means to be wrong
The absense of angels is strong

You wanna meet your maker
Look in the mirror
You say you need a life changer
You say you need a savior
Look in the mirror
Look in the mirror

You drink 'till your blood can't contain
The alcohol drowning your veins
Your twelve steps are walking to church
'Cause you'd rather pray than research

While scientists work through the night
To bring you a new kind of sight
You look to the sky and declare
That god must be busy up there

She's been living on the West Coast
Says she's rolling with the Holy Ghost
I see her when she goes to pray
I think her words are DOA
Now I'm not here to bring you down
But somewhere six feet underground
There lays a man who's buried deep
He prayed so hard but couldn't keep
His health from pending decadence
He had no need for evidence
There's science for this sorta thing
But you just wanna take a swing
With folded hands and bended knees
You close your eyes and you believe
That one day, some day maybe soon
Your fairytales will all come true
