Good Man:
(David Wilcox)

Let me apologize in advance
For the way  my friend  behaves
He'll pick a fight and take a holy stance
He's so proud that he's so saved

I hope you don't judge Jesus
By the things my friend will say
He holds a bible like a dagger
And he twists it  just that way

He just loves conversation  -  like a cat loves a bird
I guess he's always been a good man -  in the worst sense of the word

The good knights went out to save the day
In the age of the crusades
A sharp sword on a tortured soul
They were sure the point was made
Any tool can be a weapon
If it's used with that intent
The devil's great at quoting scripture
And confusing what it meant

So all the evils done for Jesus  -  it is a history so absurd
But there will always be a good man  -  in the worst sense of the word

They 'jacked a plane to make a sneak attack
They were trained to die in flames
Their last words were to God above
Just to praise His holy name

For all the terror and destruction
They felt no sense of shame
You gotta wonder why religion
Can make people so insane

But their devotion was unquestioned  -  follow straight and never swerve
The devil always needs a good man  -  in the worst sense of the word
