Baptized… Analyzed… Synthesized

Baptized… Analyzed… Synthesized

Stabbed in my soul

With a spiritual quill

Baptized… Analyzed… Synthesized

Against my free will

Face down in the Bible

I damn near drown

                                 As a preacher delivered me

               From the free God gave me

By showing me a burning cross

At such a high cost

I was told to respect and repeat

                                  Their preconceived truth

                       As I tried to call a truce

But no one could hear me

Over their own silent screams

Of please free me

From the un-free preconceived

Baptism made me

So why do they want me to be

                                  Like their preconceived

                         Like their spirituality

Why do they want me to scream

Please free me
