Love Thy Neighbor lyrics

Love Thy Neighbor

TRENT (spoken):
You can't cherry pick the bible, choosing which part you wanna believe

KAYLEE (spoken):
We don't do that

TRENT (spoken):
You don't? What's this?

(sung)
Kaylee has a small tattoo
That tattoo would be taboo
Kaylee guess what waits for you
An eternity in the fiery pits of hell

KAYLEE (spoken):
Hey!

TRENT:
Shelby, you seem sweet to me
But if it has come to be
You've lost your virginity
We'll be stoning you and your family as well

SHELBY (spoken):
What?

TRENT:
Or we could use some common sense instead
When you're lost it always helps recalling
Those immortal words that Jesus said
There's one rule that trumps them all

Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all

SHELBY (spoken):
You know, you make a lot of sense

KAYLEE (spoken):
What are you talking about?

SHELBY (spoken):
You don't feel even slightly bad for Emma? You guys used to hang out

KAYLEE (spoken):
That was before she turned gay

SHELBY (spoken):
Well, maybe she was always gay

TRENT (spoken):
Exactly, because that's how God made her, Shelby

BOY 1 (spoken):
He's just trying to confuse us. My stepdad always says --

TRENT (spoken):
Woah, stepdad? You mean your parents are divorced?

BOY 1 (spoken):
Yeah, so?

TRENT (spoken):
Oh, divorce is a big no-no

TRENT:
Not to oversimplify
But the scripture does imply
That your mom will have to die
How's tomorrow if she's not got any plans?

BOY 1 (spoken):
Uh

TRENT:
There's no way to separate
Which rules you can violate
Let's hope you don't masturbate
'Cause the scripture says we'll have to cut off your hands

Or we could use some common sense instead
When you're lost it always helps recalling
Those immortal words that Jesus said

ALL:
There's one rule that trumps them all
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor

TRENT:
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all

ALL:
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all

TRENT:
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all

Time to make some better choices
Drop the hate
Raise your voices

ALL:
Love Thy Neighbor is the one that trumps them all
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all

TRENT:
Love Thy Neighbor
Jesus tell 'em
[?] Holy spirit
Come on kids and let me hear it
What?

ALL:
Love Thy Neighbor

TRENT:
Alright!

ALL:
Love Thy Neighbor
Love Thy Neighbor trumps them all
