"Spit" is a song written by Katy Perry (then Katy Hudson) for her self-titled debut album, Katy Hudson.


Hudson explained the meaning of the song on her site in 2001.

"My mom titled this song, and now she really thinks she's cool (ha ha). This song was written when I was in the eighth grade. I wrote it because of the hypocrisy at my Christian school. I was wondering how people would change and shape up if Christ was here attending my school. I was like, if Jesus came back as a simple high school kid, how would you act in front of Him? Don't you understand the pain He feels when you do these things, basically, spit in His face. It's a mockery. But there's the truth. When you ask Christ into your heart He's there, in your heart, wherever you go. He sees it all. I want people to understand that it hurts Christ when they ignore Him and live their lives. The pain is like crucifying Him again and again. But can you believe it? He forgives everything."


If You came by me would I crown You my King
Or brush You off as though I really didn't see
If You walked by my side would our souls then be unified
I swore Your name would never be denied

But I took up this hammer
And laughed at all your slander
And pierced Your hands
With the nails of blasphemy
How could I do this? I don't know
Said something forced me to it, so
Spit in Your face and passed You by
(I'd forgotten those words "Your name won't be denied")

But time and time again I'd live that life of sin
I know it hurt You bad but I wasn't ready to give in
Maybe someday but not this day I said
I wanted to live my life I was willing to pay the price

But looking into my eyes I knew
You felt this heart's cry
I needed You bad my life was oh so sad
But looking back at all this pain this guilt, this strife
Would You take it all away if I were to give You back my life?

But You said, "I've forgiven thee"
And You said, "I've forgiven thee"

He was hanging on a cross
With a crown of thorns in His head

But You said, "I've forgiven thee"
And You said, "I've forgiven thee"
