Men in Robes

Lyricist Paula Obè serves up a flurry of passionate, enraged yet strangely calm and resolute words that examine religion, love and hypocrisy. Her Lyrics accuse the Christian church and the patriarchal world of denying her the right to love whomever she chooses.

I’ve spend many lonely nights crying
Many lonely nights in tears
Trouble like water under the bridge
Telling me things that I don’t wish to hear
The Caroni river overflows
And traffic is piled up for hours
Just like these emotions inside my head
Just like these emotions inside my head

The church says don’t do this, it’s wrong
And the church says don’t do that, it’s wrong
And the church says don’t you dare love your own reflection
Men in robes telling me what to do
Men in robes telling me who to love
And how do I choose living in a Patriarch Christian world
When it’s you that keeps me sane when night falls
When it’s you that keeps me safe when all else fails

If I shatter this reflection they’ll win
Tired of writing loves notes in the fire
Tired of reading ashes in the dawn
I hear hypocrisy has a new name in town
And father please tell me something,
Tell me what is it you tell those little boys
Do you tell them, do you tell them,
To climb the staircase to your heaven
Do you make them say ten hail Mary’s full of grace so that they can be saved
Since you’re the closest thing to God

The church says don’t do this it’s wrong
And the church says don’t do that it’s wrong
And the church says don’t you dare love your own reflection
Men in robes telling me what to do
Men in robes telling me who to love
And how do I choose living in a Patriarch Christian world
When it’s you that keeps me safe when all else fails
