AMERICAN JESUS By Ashley Miranda

AMERICAN JESUS

BANG BANG              AMERICAN JESUS WANTS TO SHOOT ME

“I DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU ARE AMERICAN,” AMERICAN JESUS YELLS,
“YOU’RE A DAMN MEXICAN” BANG BANG

BEING MEXICAN MEANS BEING SINFUL
AMERICAN JESUS DOESN’T CARE THAT I GO TO BAPTIST CHURCH BECAUSE THEY
ARE SINNERS AND UNAMERICAN

AMERICAN JESUS LIKES GUNS WOMEN AND FUCKING

AMERICAN JESUS DOESN’T CARE THAT I AM BLEEDING OUT NOW

AMERICAN JESUS ESPECIALLY DOESN’T LIKE THAT I GO TO CATHOLIC CHURCH

ONLY HEATHENS WORSHIP IDOLS AND THAT STATUE OF MARY IS WORTH
SHOOTING

AMERICAN JESUS LIKES CHOICES BUT NOT MY CHOICES AMERICAN JESUS YELLS
“PICK THE RIGHT RELIGION” BUT I’M ALREADY DEAD SO I CAN’T SEE ALL THE
OPTIONS

AMERICAN JESUS IS AN ETERNAL SCREAM OF WHITE AMERICANA AND WHITE
AMERICANA IS THE NINTH CIRCLE OF HELL AMERICAN JESUS IS MY
PUNISHMENT

SORRY AMERICAN JESUS NEXT TIME I’LL BE BULLETPROOF
