Close Your Book
Words and music ©2017-2018 by Mario G. Di Sandro

Nothing good ever comes from it
Holy wars and a history full of death
Trial by God, and they’ll hang you
Need not apply if this cross you ain’t wearing

Eye for an eye, livin’ out Hammurabi
Long after the, fall of Babylon
Misinterpretation becomes the law
Put on your best face, or it’s guilt we saw

I don’t need it
I won’t read it
So close your book and open your eyes

I won’t need it
I don’t read it
So close your book and open your mind

Don’t curse his name, unless you’re praying
Forgiveness comes to only those a-paying
Some hypocrite, called me a sinner
Don’t need a bible, for a moral conditioner

Memorizing words, don’t make you higher
Truth be told, you’re more often a liar
Tellin’ me, to fall in line!
Well, guess what, you’re not so divine

I don’t need it
I won’t read it
So close your book and open your eyes

I won’t need it
I don’t read it
So close your book and open your mind

(the truth, will set you free)

Your savior would, never believe you
Sure as hell, wouldn’t approve of it
Don’t need your book to teach me a code
While you keep, sinnin’ in overload

I don’t need it
I won’t read it
So close your book and open your eyes

I won’t need it
I don’t read it
So close your book and open your mind
