Tiken Jah Religion – Lyrics

Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy
Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy

If you decide to kill yourself
Do it alone
If you want to go to your paradise
Go there alone

Don’t bring the kids
Don’t bring innocent children

Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy
Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy

I can hear, some women crying
Crying crying crying
I can see, innocent parents
Crying, cause’ they lost their child

Nothing is worth dying for that

Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy
Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy

No one could ever forgive
The killing of innocent children
No one could ever agree
With your way to read the book

Guilty you are to me
For the murder of the youth
For the murder of the youth
For the murder of the children
For the murder of humanity

Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy
Religion should be cool
Religion can be crazy
