Find God Tonight

(parody of "Not Tonight" by the New Cars)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: for some reason, the songs that are specifically about sin lend themselves to parodies about salvation. That's how it works in my twisted brain, anyway. This one is specifically aimed at members of a particular religion that names Christ but teaches salvation by good works.


You're afraid of the unknown, yes, and it's like a fire alarm.
It's easy to imagine you'll be coming to harm, endless harm.
I wanna show you past your rites, find God tonight.

I got a Bible for sharing. There's more in here than you think.
I'd like to open a tab to words of Christ in red ink, in red ink.
'Cause He's the only way, the truth, and life, find God tonight.
I'd like to take a chance and then invite, "Find God tonight."

Bridge:
On your knees, your sins can't advance, have no pull.
That's where life begins if you will commit your, will commit your soul

I hear you wonder 'bout creation. You want some answers, and fast.
You say that you don't want a scam, you want the First and the Last.
You'll be alive if you will come contrite, find God tonight.
I'd like to take a chance and then invite, "Find God tonight."

You could say some prayers that seem profound, it's all just fluff.
'Cause it's a narrow road we must walk down — our works are not enough.

solo - like a verse
bridge

So don't you say a prayer to Mary, it's only going to fail.
It isn't sweet when the world ignites — find God tonight.
You'll be alive if you will come contrite, find God tonight.

Don't wanna praise the Mass (find God tonight)
You know all flesh is grass (find God tonight)
Don't want a mystic trance (find God tonight)
Just take a Bible stance (find God tonight)
Don't want to close your eyes (find God tonight)
You wanna turn and get wise (find God tonight)

You'll be alive if you will come contrite, find God tonight. God tonight!
