Born with eyes
But they are not to see
Living on your knees
Choking on your spiritual agony
Follow the traces of blood
Throughout the past centuries
You choose not to see
Bow down and worship me at the altar of shame

You strive for perfection
But you don't have the tools
Human weakness embodied
Fodder for fools
Feeding the fear of life itself
Over and over again
And choose not to see

Bow down and worship me at the altar of shame

So you're the saint and I'm the sinner?
You will never understand
You're the saint and I'm the sinner
No - you will never understand

Born with eyes
But they are not to see
Living on your knees
Choking on your spiritual agony
Follow the traces of blood
Throughout the past centuries
You choose not to see
Bow down and worship me at the altar of shame

    General CommentThis is a song picking on arrogant pseudo-Christens who believe that they are holier then those who deny their beliefs. I think they are particularly picking on the Roman Catholic Church (hint of a bloody past)

    Id like to point out that the Holy Bible teaches that all man are utterly sinful and that all need reparation.

    Also i believe that you don't instantly become holy. There is a concept called sanctification which has a usage which says that Those who are saved will become more righteous(but never totally) after accepting Christ for your sins.
