SOAPSTONE Rhetorical Analysis Song Project
Bad Religion ~ Frank Ocean
Verse 1

Taxi driver
Be my shrink for the hour
Leave the meter, running
Its rush hour
So take the streets if you wanna
Just outrun the demons could you


Hook
He said Allah Hu Akbar
I told him dont curse me
But boy you need prayer
I guess it couldnt hurt me
If it brings me to my knees
Its a bad religion
This unrequited love
To me its nothing but a one man cult
And cyanide in my styrofoam cup
I could never make him love me
Never make him love me
Love me love me love me love me
Love me love me
Love me love me love me love


Verse 2
He said Allah Hu Akbar
I told him dont curse me
But boy you need prayer
I guess it couldnt hurt me

Outro
*Repeat Hook*
Its a its a bad religion
To be in love with
Someone who could never love you
Only bad only bad religion
Could have me feeling the way I do
