lyrics

Just out of high school
Well, they formed a band
Called the Beautiful Believers
Gonna save this land
Four young disciples
Far from the flock
Well, they smoke and drink
And play Christian rock

John plays the bass
And Matt plays guitar
Mark is the drummer
And Luke is the star
The van’s loaded up
Bound for Ohio
Gonna preach and meet the girls
At the all-ages show

Meet the Beautiful Believers
‘Til the pious pull the plug
They will rock the kids for Jesus
Meet the Beautiful Believers
With faith and fifteen bucks
They’ll come coasting into Cleveland

They toke a little hash
And drink a lot of beer
They preach a lot of love
And not a lot of fear
They don’t fear the Baptists
Or the Republicans
They don’t fear the fascists
Flick a bird to the Man

They were making good time
And they scored some good weed
Then they stopped at a quick stop
Somewhere in Tennessee
John read the bible
While Mark got some smokes
They filled up with gas
And the Holy Ghost
