Liberal Backslider

I just took the Larknews EQ test - How Evangelical Are You?
I scored 40 - which apparently makes me 'Backslidden'!
So, me and Martyn together then...

Liberal Backslider - Martyn Joseph
I'm a liberal backslider I've been sliding ‘bout ten years
People ask me how I'm doin' and I confirm all their fears
I'm swearing like a trooper, and I'm drinking like a bum
I'm a liberal backslider and it sure is a lot of fun.

Been Following these footsteps now for many a year gone by
But you always upset someone there no matter how you try
Well the good things they're forgotten if a bad thing comes around
Now all these stones are flyin' they're gonna knock me to the ground

I'm a liberal backslider….

I take a stand on justice, I take a stand on race
Gonna take me a TV evangelist and punch him in the face
I sing about the hope that's in me and ask why the poor aren't fed
But if I don't tow the party line, it'd be better if I were dead

I'm a liberal backslider….

So I'll be asking for forgiveness then until the day I die
Though I can't be sure of what I've done I think I'd better try
Thank God you're not the jury, thank God I'm not the judge
Here's to a bigger picture, here's to the bigger love!

I'm a liberal backslider…
