Christ killers

not the renegades and rebels without causes or clues...screaming eye for an eye and tooth for a 
not the roman rulers and not even the jews...
the real Christ killers are me and you

not the pharases and saduccees
not phillistines,psychopathic pharohs,or savage beasts
with evil eyes and naughty needs...choking out love like wicked weeds
telling beautiful lies that sound like truth...
the real Christ killers are me and you

forgive and forget a million times a day...but when the heat gets hotter we always turn away
turning our backs on love and light...searching for sin in the middle of the night
no will to stand up and fight
just prowling the prey and howling at a madmans moon...
the real Christ killers are me and you

how long before the tables get toppled and the tide starts to turn?
how long can we sin before our souls start to burn?
how long will it take?
will we ever learn?
still we tear off toe tags and rip through body bags
He still cleans our dirty rags
and every day is brand new...
even though the real Christ killers are me and you
