The Lyrics

I was so glad to read that the bishops have decide that they should have
the final say in how to deal with pedophilia charges. After all the lies and
cover ups, it's so good to know that now someone with a vested interest in
bringing all charges and past cover ups to light will be in charge! What a
change this will make. So I wrote this little number. Why...
...because I can.

Holding Out for the Bishops
(To the tune of "Holding Out For A Hero" by Bonnie Tyler)

Where have all the good men gone
Who claim to speak for G-d?
Where's the honesty we need
To fight the rising odds
And aren't there some white knights upons some fiery steeds
Late at night all the children cry and they dream of what they need

We need the bishops
We're holding out for the bishops cause we know they'll do right
It's gone on too long
We'll see justice at last
Cause they'll bring all the past lies to light
We need the bishops
We're holding out for the bishops to make it all right
They've gotta be sure
So they can't move too soon
It's not their fault it all came to light


Somewhere in heiarchies
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone looking out for me
Secrecy's important, addictive like a drug
It's gonna take some time you see, to sweep this under rug


Up where the bishops meet the deal has been done
There's no more coverups you see
I could swear there is someone somewhere fooling me
Through the lies and abuse and the pain
And the hurt and the blood
I can feel G-d's reproach
Like a fire in my blood
