Born This Way 2

from Curt Kennedy's album Frustrated Christian

V1
Even as a kid I knew that I was different,
Don't know what it is, but I know what it isn't.
I was never one, to be the soft type,
When they would play with toys I would play with knives.
My momma always said, she was scared for me,
But I would say, "Momma, this is who I be.
I can't change that," and she would say, "I know," but society,
Would never let it go. So in grade school, I really tried to hide,
But the violent streak never stayed inside.
I would ask momma if she would pray for me,
Cuz the preacher said its not how I should be.
But I always knew, this is who I am,
That I was always violent so when I killed a man,
I told the judge, "Yeah, it's what I did,
Cuz I was born this way and knew it as a kid."

It's not really fair to say, that only they are born this way,
It's not really fair to do, when I was born this way too,
You can't claim that what they do is alright,
When I have felt this way my entire life.

V2
I thought it was a phase, when I was five,
They told me tell the truth but I loved to lie.
It felt more natural, to not tell the truth,
Even though they said, it's not what you should do.
And I understood what they was trying to say,
But I can't change, I was born this way.
I told my parents that, about when I was nine,
So we went to church, to try to change my mind.
For a while it did, but it was really hard,
To hear the Bible say, that if I worship God,
I have to stop lying, but I was like, "Why?
If God made me this way why even try?"
God loves me, if I don't tell the truth,
So saying I should change, is really just for you.
Some say the Bible is wrong about being gay,
So we got to re-examine everything it says, hey!

V3
I always thought, I had enough love,
For more than one person, it came from above.
I love a few women, and they love me,
And we wanna marry, and have a family.
But society says that this is wrong,
That I can only marry one, I can't have them all.
And I don't think it's fair, cuz even in the Bible,
They had many wives, and God seemed fine
To let it happen, so why do you judge me,
And create laws, like polygamy.
Restricting me, from who I know I am,
Imposing your interpretation like I give a damn.
If I love them, and they love me,
And we ain't doing harm, why can't we marry?
Cuz it's against the law? Don't even bother me,
Cuz not too long ago so was sodomy.

Spoken
Hear what I'm not saying, because this is the future.
