Favorite Things Lyrics

I'm thinking of my soul's sovereignty,
and I know everything you hate in me.
Fill me up with over-pious badgerings,
to throw them up, oh, one of my favorite things.
Remember all the lessons fed to me?

    I agree that it doesn't sound like it fits the religion thing, but that's straight from Brandon Boyd's mouth. I read an interview about various song meanings and this song is anti-religion, specifically anti-Christianity.

    "Favorite things is my personal beliefs about religion and how it oppresses the things I enjoy the most. Unfortunately, the simplest things, such as thinking for myself, creating my own reality and being whatever the hell I want to be each day of my life, are a sin. To be a good Christian basically means to give up the reigns of your life and let some unseen force do it for you."

    So there you have it.

    I am sorry, but I kind of dessagre with the opinion of chesecakemafia.

    Ps - I really don't see any relation to relligion here =

    This song is about religion and how everything that is enjoyable is shunned by Religion.

    "Too bad the things that make you mad are my favorite things."
