Separated, I cut myself clean from a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force and a grace that replaced all the me I divorced
I saw a man with a tat on his big fat belly
It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
It took me a while to catch what it said Ďcause I had to match the rhythm of his belly with my head
ďJesus SavesĒ is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
He stood on a box in the middle of the city and he claimed he had a dreamÖ
What will people think when they hear that Iím a Jesus freak?
What will people do when they find that itís true?
I donít really care if they label me a Jesus freak Ė there ainít no disguising the truth
No I ainít into hiding the Truth
Kamikaze, my death is gain Ė Iíve been marked by my Maker, a peculiar display
The high and lofty, they see me as weak - but I wonít live and die for the power they seek
There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke make the people assume there wasnít too much left in the upper room
With skins on his back and hair on his face, they thought he was strange from the locusts he ate
All the Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak until the king took the head of this Jesus freakÖ
People say Iím strange, does it make me a stranger that my best friend was born in a manger?
What will people think (what will people think?)
What will people do (what will people do?)
I donít really care (what else can I say?)
There ainít no disguising the Truth (Jesus is the Way)
