I would like to wear a white suit, that heavenly bellboy uniform of sweating snakehandlers

On special occasions

For when I perform that rarest of theological maneuvers: the reverse exorcism

When I steal the Evangelicals’ shtick/ oh baby

When I let the spirit enter you (let us pray)

We will have to see (look at me, playing the skulking other/ how debonair)

If you continue to say

That America

Is a religion of peace.
