Bitter apostate tea part 2

 

 

Here is a sad old story you’ve heard

many

many a time

in your travels I’m sure.

 

The story of

the person who became arrogant with learning

so arrogant

that he turned his back on the gospel

of the true restored church.

 

Oh pity our fallen man

who has become

deluded

by the illusion,

the attraction,

of education.

 

Oh yeah,

here is our sad person

who has turned his back on the truth

and fallen

from grace.

 

He’s singing the blues.

 

He’s singin’ the blues; that’s all he’s got left,

 

That’s all he’s got left,

the sad and lonely old blues of the bitter apostate.

 

The bitter apostate.

 

The bitter apostate.

 

The bitter apostate

lives in his lonely world of isolation

which he has made for himself

and no one else is to blame.

 

Oh listen to him sing the blues,

sing the blues,

the bitter apostate blues,

 

the bitter apostate blues,

 

the bitter apostate blues,

 

the bitter apostate blues.

 

Lord, have mercy on your wicked son.
