I am what you would like to be
We like to hold on to everything
Fucked up words and the truth in lies

Under the shadow of Hiroshima
The American dream's gone bad again
Sorry story comes to a happy end

Bereft of an ideal
Bereft of his faith
Lived to tell the tale
Pessimism of humanity's case
Oh well

God's not dead just tired of it all
Watches assault upon morality
The human story a civil war

Roles reversed at the end of his life
The influence of agenda again
Paused for thought but forgot what to think

Bereft of an ideal
Bereft of his faith
Lived to tell the tale
Pessimism of humanity's case
Oh well

Could I survive a genocide?
Holocaust for a new century
Try to evade the unavoidable

Set himself up as an anti-christ
Freedom of choice might be possible
I am a force that determines human fate

Bereft of an ideal
Bereft of his faith
Lived to tell the tale
Pessimism of humanity's case
Oh well
