about

"I have had this song in the works since album one... I've always loved curt's song Mason Jar and finally figured out how to "reimagine" it with Curt's help. It shames those that are educated way beyond their obedience."

lyrics

I put my Jesus in a mason jar
Stuck Him on a shelf behind the Lucky Charms
Take Him out when I start feeling blue
After all ain’t that exactly what He died to do?

I put my Jesus in a mason jar
Stuck Him on a shelf next to Hershey bars
I think at first He might have shed some tears
Now He is quite adjusted after all these years

I put my Jesus in a mason jar
Every Sunday morn I place Him in my car
Take Him to the place where we first met
Show Him off like it’s nothing more than pretty pet

I keep Him in the mason jar because it’s hipster
Seal it up tight so I can’t hear Him whisper
Can’t be distracted when I try to sleep
Gotta make sure that His voice doesn’t bother me (No!)

Chorus
Let Him out the jar, Let him out the jar (x4)

My Jesus sits there in His majon jar
Forced to stare at quantities of fats and carbs
If i let Him out I would be afraid to see
All the kinds of crazy things He might ask of me

But I can’t help but be a little curious
What’s inside this jar collecting dust?
What if all this time that man upon my shelf
Was more than just my ticket to stay out hell?

But I keep Him in the jar cuz the preacher say
To stay safe, keep Him close in case of judgement day
Keep Him close so when I’m feeling low
I can let Him out to entertain me with miracle show

So that’s why I keep my Jesus in a mason jar
Keep Him on a shelf behind the Lucky Charms
Take Him out when I start feeling blue
After all ain’t that exactly what He died to do?

Chorus

about

Inside Joke Lexington, Kentucky

What started out as an "inside joke" has turned into a world-wide movement... sort of. From Lexington, KY, Inside Joke takes rap music back to the days when it was fun, made you dance, and actually rhymed! At the same time, Inside Joke brings a new school vibe, spirituality at times, and a little country grammar to boot! ... more
