Some say he was the Son of God, a man above all men,
but he came to be a servant and to set us free from sin;
and that's who I believe he is 'cause that's what I believe
and I think we should get ready cause it's almost time to leave.
Larry Norman surely was one messed up dude; he often failed to practice what he preached and he could be vindictive and rude; but his songs spoke to me when I was in my early teens and they were probably responsible for the mutation between a liberal Catholic and hellfire fundamentalist that I later became. I can also be as big a bastard as he was so I can relate, as they say nowadays.
