You say I can't dance or do as I please
"Just do as your told boy, get down on your knees,
And let the spirit move you and cleanse your disease,
You'll pay a price if you set your body free."

You say it was the voice of God that you heard
He was talking in tongues so your misunderstood
So would you make it right, now, even if you could
But you could do no wrong and I could do no good

I know they're gonna call me "Backslider"
I know they're gonna call me "Backslider"
I bet they're gonna say "He don't believe in Jesus Christ!"

You say I should change my thoughts and my ways
"Just cut all your hair and then give up your name."
You wanted control and you tried to call it faith
I gave you my youth and you threw it away
