These chains that have choked existence
Have fallen away
This veil that has blinded eyes has been lifted
And now it is gone

And like the ways of the sheep
The flock has been only to receive
Led to the gates of their enemy
Led to the slaughter of their beliefs
And now their gazing eyes have turned
Turned to see us laughing

These fools who have thought us to be as they are
Have never seen
Guided by limiting the ways that they think
They thought us blind and obscene

But now the sheep are wailing
Cries to a god they never see
And as the gates are closing
Down upon the all they have believed
And now their pleading eyes have turned
Turned to see the eyes of the laughing

The ties have bound these fools to the ways of the blind
Is ignorant bliss
Lies that were fed to the slumbering mass
They've grazed upon it

And all that awaits men failing to see
Is the sight they've despised
The gates have opened
Your religion has died
