I Want to be a Clone!


I'd gone through so much other stuff
That walking down the aisle was tough
But now I know it's not enough
I want to be a clone

I asked the Lord into my heart
They said that was the way to start
But now you've got to play the part
I want to be a clone

Be a clone and kiss conviction goodnight
Cloneliness is next to Godliness, right?
I'm grateful that they show the way
'Cause I could never know the way
To serve him on my own
I want to be a clone

They told me that I'd fall away
Unless I followed what they say
Who needs the Bible anyway?
I want to be a clone

Their language it was new to me
But Christianese got through to me
Now I can speak it fluently
I want to be a clone

Be a clone and kiss conviction goodnight
Cloneliness is next to Godliness, right?
I'm grateful that they show the way
'Cause I could never know the way
To serve him on my own
I want to be a clone


Send in the clones

Ah, I kind of wanted to tell my friends and people about it, you know?

What?
You're still a babe
You have to grow
Give it twenty years or so
'Cause if you want to be one of his
Got to act like one of us

Be a clone and kiss conviction goodnight
Cloneliness is next to Godliness, right?
I'm grateful that they show the way
'Cause I could never know the way
To serve him on my own
I want to be a clone

So now I see the whole design
My church is an assembly line
The parts are there, I'm feeling fine
I want to be a clone

I've learned enough to stay afloat
But not so much I rock the boat
I'm glad they shoved it down my throat
I want to be a clone

Everybody must get cloned

  1. Love those last 8 lines!

    Saw S.T. live 30 years ago. He looked about the same as he does on this album cover. I was at a rehearsal camp, preparing to travel the US and Europe performing Christian music. Steve had written for the same organization so we were blessed to hear him love in an intimate venue.

    I was psyched when I heard he was directing Donald Miller's "Blue Like Jazz." That book meant a lot to me. Good night.

    1. Wow! I'm not jealous at all… well, not very much… really... ;)

      I notice that he and Peter Furler (ex Newsboys) have been working together a bit recently :)

      Btw, what instrument do you play?
