"I'm Not Jesus" is a song by the Finnish cello metal band Apocalyptica, featuring Corey Taylor from Slipknot and Stone Sour. The single was released on September 17, 2007 and again on March 4, 2008,[1] on the album Worlds Collide.

The song thematizes child-abuse by clerics. Corey Taylor sings from the perspective of a man who was sexually abused by a priest when he was a child and now confronts his abuser.

The song was co-written by Filter guitarist and composer Geno Lenardo and vocalist Johnny Andrews.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by Tony Petrossian, featured Corey Taylor recording, and Apocalyptica members playing their instruments. The video also includes various film shots of children in torn/old clothes, and behind fences or various other objects. Every child shows no emotion in their facial expression.[2]
