The Christian counselor wrote, quote
Bb F
"It's the only human choice ahead.
Ab Bb F
If you can't support it, why don't you abort it instead."
He said, "You pray to the sky?"
Ab Bb F
Why, when you're afraid to take a stand down here.
'Cause while the holy talk reads like a bad ad lib
Silence screams you are robbing the crib.
Bb F
Say it ain't none of my business, huh?
Bb F
A woman's got a right to choose.
G Bb
Now a grave digger, next you pull the trigger, what then?
Whatever happened to sin?

I heard the Reverend say
"Gay is probably normal in the good Lord's sight
"What's to be debated? Jesus never stated what's right."
I'm no theology nut,
But the Reverend may be a little confused.
For if the Lord don't care and He chooses to ignore, ah
Tell it to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah
Call it just an alternate lifestyle, huh?
Morality lies within.
Consciences are restin'
Please repeat the question again.
Whatever happened to sin?
When the closets are empty and the clinics are full
When your eles have been blinded by societies wool
When the streets erupt in your own back yard
You'll be on your knees praying for the National Guard.
If you don't care now how the problems get solved
You can shake your head later that you never got involved.
'Cause the call came ringing from the Throne of Gold
But you never got the message
'Cause your mind's on hold.
A politician next door
Swore he'd set the Washington arena on fire.
Thinks he'll gladiate him but they're gonna make him a liar.
Well, he's a good old boy who was born and raised in the buckle of the Bible belt
But remember when you step into your voting booth -
He'll never lie, he'll just embellish the truth.
Promises were made to be broken, right?
You've gotta play the game to win.
When you need supporting, tell'em that you're born again.
Whatever happened to sin?
