lyrics

Staring unseeing at the world,
Facing opposition to your every breath.
Hate lies in your mouth like a gun,
Cocked and ready to go off.

Ready to go!

Structures and concepts of a higher power
Built on wrath and viewed through a crooked lens.
Give a grim premonition of disaster,
Leaving caskets for the dead.

White flags fly skyward,
Covering placards of lies.
All in the name of the Messiah.
You have a mind, but where is your heart?

Everything that you hold close,
Can only distance you from the world!

The hostile song that you sing
Will never bring you anything but derision.
If this is what you believe, so be it.
I can't respect your decision.
You only focus on the pain to be brought down.
On this broken vessel,
We attempt to mend!

The condemnation you sow, you'll reap tenfold.
The warped heaven in which you see yourselves will never be my home.

What God would die so you could ruin hope?
I refuse to believe your perversion of truth.
And if acceptance damn me,
Then send me straight to your hell!

Armed with a holy book
And speaking in riddled verse,
Still you ignore the basis
Of the the faith you claim.

Were not the words of the saviour:
"Judge not, lest ye be judged."
Try as I ever might.
I will never comprehend.

I will never understand how you,
How you've forgotten love.
What God would die for you?
Oh!

What God would die so you could ruin hope?
I refuse to believe you.
this is not the truth.
And If acceptance damn me,
Then send me straight to your hell!
