Self defeating self defeat to memory
while the glittered Gods
the weak alike and buried bodies
found alive would pray for peace and hope
and genius and prosperity
while mind is on delay

lay face down on the carpet
tell me what seems more real
is it hard fought years
or the blood sweat and tears
or the prayers the built this home?

self defeating self defeat to memory
while the glittered Gods
the weak alike and buried bodies
found alive would pray
just in case

I want to go for a drive
I promise I'll close my eyes
I don't have to see the things
which I believe
though I did
two weeks before this time

in fantasies of growing old and gray
awake at home, content alone
in bliss to waste these days

there must be another way
it has crossed my mind a thousand times
but the secret escapes every try
I met an angel on a Tuesday
and this is what was shared
a great many things
where do I begin
in what detail would it be deemed clear:

"all in one or all entwined
faith was built on saving lives
all in one resolve?
all for one at odds?
religion is full of holes
please just love your self
trust your self
help your self
please just love your self
won't you even try?
you have such little time in this life"

the greatest conception to know
was never noticed at all
faith is human decency or it could be
but sadly we have died less
in every other name

serves what right?
religion is full of holes
we have come to know
no God is right
if no one here survives
a promise meant is a promise kept
die for it
you're in my sight
and I'm aiming deep inside
all of your heads

a promise meant is a promise kept
die for it
a promise meant is a promise kept
