Confession lyrics

Confession

STUDENTS
We're doing time in confession
It's a sacrament of oppression
We have no need for forgiveness
Because our shit's none of his business

KYRA
I got so high I fainted

ALAN
Sometimes I don't recycle

ZACH
I finally nailed my girlfriend

LUCAS
I took some extra Nyquil

TANYA
I blinked and it was over

DIANE
I swear with all my life I'll...

STUDENTS
...sin no more, I'm sorry Lord

We're doing time in confession
It's a poor man's therapy session
We have no need for forgiveness
Because our shit's none of his business

KYRA & TANYA
He best mind his own business!

ALAN
What does glory begot?

DIANE
He gave me nine Hail Mary's

TANYA
Twenty-five All Fathers

LUCAS
This is so arbitrary

DIANE
I don't think God intended
Confession to be scary

STUDENTS
Say that you'll forgive me Lord
We're doing time in confession
We're working out some oppression
We have no need for forgiveness
Because our shit's none of his business
Hell no, our shit's none of his business

PETER & MATT
Father...

PETER
Can the church be wrong?

MATT
Can a sin be right?

PETER
If it's something that you feel

MATT
Something that you saw?

BOTH
Goes against the law, what do you do?

MATT
Do you tell?

BOTH
What do I follow?

PRIEST
The church's teachings come from centuries of study
Questions of doctrine are best left to greater minds than yours
This is not to say the church is never wrong
But if you hold to her creed you'll never find yourself let down
Is there anything else, son?

PETER & MATT
No, Father

PETER
Hear my voice

MATT
Did you really hear me?

IVY
Hear my voice

KYRA
I don't think you see me

MATT & NADIA
Do you think you know me?

ZACH
Did you really hear me?

DIANE & RORY
Would you really know me?

MATT
Do you think you see me?

ALAN, RORY, ZACH & DIANE
Hear my voice

PETER
If I ever told you...
If I ever told you...
If I ever told you...

SISTER CHANTELLE
Ok, let's just try to put yesterday's rehearsal behind us. New day, new attitude...3...4.

CHOIR
Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona where we lay our scene

SISTER CHANTELLE
People, your first note is a C natural.
Ain't nothing natural about what you're singing.

CHOIR
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean

SISTER CHANTELLE
That's it!
There's bad, and then there's whatever y'all are doing.
Have mercy! Go practice somewhere I can't hear you

IVY
Sister Chantelle? I did some sketches. You know, like for the poster or the program?

SISTER CHANTELLE
uh huh

JASON
Hey, that looks great

IVY
Oh, thanks

NADIA
Bathroom stalls don't lie! She's good with her hands!
