Can't you imagine it as a happy-clappy worship song?
Besides the fact that
- it's honest (uh oh),
- the pre-chorus is just paraphrasing John the Baptist's favorite motto.
...we obviously have great biblical precedent for this type of thing.
(See also "honest worship music?" and "Church, let's sing suspended in space..." and uh, a worship song called "Maranatha" which includes the F-word)..
If you like it, try some other ditties from the same album:
- "(I've Got) Blood on My Hands"
- "Hang Me High"
- "(I'm) Miles From Shame"
Here it is..practice it for Sunday:
"I am no Christ"
