I Won't Say the Lord's Prayer  The Wonder Years

I like to play this in D# standard, capo on 2nd fret. Feel free to criticize and
correct, I'm open to it, as I'm not sure about these, so please correct if need be.
[C]It's a series of bars thrift stores and churches lining the streets
[Am]While women with gold crosses push kid[Gm]s into half-formed be[F]liefs
[C]And if Lot was righteous, I think I'd rather not be
[Am]We lean on fences built from out[Gm]dated morali[F]ty
[C]It's a gang mentality, it's a dangerous thing
[Am]They don't ask you to think, just t[Gm]o repeat after[F] me
[C]And assume you're too careless to look at it critically
[Am]You'll stop progress if it contradicts what[Gm] you're told to[F] believe
[B5]I re[A5]fuse[C] to[B5] spend life on my knees
[C]These billboards that flaunt these scared tactics
[Am]Make me think you're only good if yo[Gm]u're afraid of being[F] punished
[C]Every single Sunday, church bells wake me up
[Am]But it's never enough to [Gm]pull me out of be[F]d
[C]The church on Main Street has got its doors painted red
[Am]And I guess it's so the Angel of Death p[Gm]asses over it on[F] its way to get gas
[C]The church over on Broad Street has got a neon sign that says Jesus Save Me
[Am]And I guess it's so God can see from [Gm]where he is in the ch[F]eap seats
[B5]I re[A5]fuse[C] to[B5] spend life on my knees
I won't let somebo[F]dy else
[Am]Somebody else
[C]Somebody else
[C]If we're all just Christians [F]or lions
[C]I think I'd rather be on the side with sharper teet[F]h
I don't need savi[B5]ng[A5]
