Blasphemy Song

(The context for this song was supposed to be a sketch comedy piece featuring Martin Luther, the founder of Protestantism, being accosted by emissaries from the Vatican who accuse him of blasphemy and heresy in this joke version of the Bee Gees song: “Tragedy”.)

(To the tune of: “Tragedy” by the Bee Gees)

Here I lie,
In a purgatory all alone,
Held in time,
In a world of tears I’m on my own,
Can’t go on,
My spirit can’t seem to move on,
I really should be one with You, one with You,
But my beliefs aren’t true…

Blasphemy,
When the teaching’s wrong and you can’t go on,
It’s heresy,
When your faith’s not strong and your life seems wrong,
It’s hard to pray, with no one to guide you you’re going to hell.

Blasphemy,
When you lose your Pope and you got no hope,
It’s heresy,
When your faith won’t fly and you don’t know why,
It’s hard to pray, with no one to guide you you’re going to hell.

Night and day,
I’m burning down in side of hell,
Aaaaa, Burning flesh from my body I can’t help but smell,
Down I go,
And I’ve been condemned to rot alone,
I really should be one with You, one with You,
But my religion’s not true…

Blasphemy,
When the teaching’s wrong and you can’t go on,
It’s heresy,
When you worship wrong and God’s wrath’s strong,
It’s hard to pray, with no one to guide you you’re going to hell.

Blasphemy,
When you lose your soul and it takes its toll,
It’s heresy,
Through your mourning cries you still don’t know why,
It’s hard to pray, with no one to guide you you’re going to hell.
Aaaaaaaaaaaa!

(Thunder clap)

This is “Tragedy” by the Bee Gees:
