The clock is ticking on the wall, the world is spinning while the billions work to justify their lives.
They look for meaning in their useless sense of breeding in their quest for recognition when they die.
Because ego won't permit belief in our mortality so we manufactured our delusioned lie.
We believe with much conviction in our useless superstition that our lives are bigger than life.
The man on TV preaches his beliefs to me and says that I am doomed because I don't think like him.
He asks for contributions for his sermons convolutions, in return is absolution for your sins.
I watch in disbelief as people try and shed their grief because they can't accept the things that they've become.
They blindly patronize a dogmatic pack of lies that tell them Jesus is their chosen one.
Strictly designed for the weak of mind, not just the working man's opiate anymore.
Paralyzed minds all seeking the sublime with all doubt ruled out by their faith in the divine.
All of them seeking that same righteous reward.
Weak of mind and born to follow, do not question the beliefs you swallow.
Eternal life for your belief in man, welcome to the empty promised land.
Don't speak, don't breathe, don't live, just believe.
With no question, just devotion, lifeless life living in transition.
Welcome to the empty promised land.
