Dearly Beloved (acoustic)

Lyrics | Track Details

Here's the story of an honest man losing religion
Climbing the pulpit steps before an eager
congregation
The while praying came a wicked inspiration
Brothers, sisters this is what he said
Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I've seldom
seen evidence of genes)
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you
He was the kind of guy who would always go right
out of his way
But more before that crazy notion leapt right into
his head
And stubbornly crept into every mad perception
I can't deny a funny feeling when he said
Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you
Dearest in memoriam - set phasers to stun
And grab yourself a neighbors skeleton to
lean upon
Did you know him in life - one filled with regret
So soon we all forget - we ever met
Do you know my name - sing a light refrain
For a man estranged - I won't deny that I'm
inclined to isolate
Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I've seldom
seen evidence of genes)
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you, I can't
relate to you
