"Mine Are The Eyes Of God" as written by and Keenan Agell....
Taught to believe from the onset, of heaven and hell and between
The institution's retribution, damnation from on high

Living and dying together never did nothing at all
Except for the few who got rich off of you
And the rest, they were herded like sheep

Mine are the eyes of god
And what I see is not what was meant to be
Mine are the eyes of god
Mine are the eyes
Mine are the eyes of god

Down the road to betrayal of values they held to be true
An aberration, deviation to get to the spirit of life

The whole goddamn world is riding on words for thousands of years
It's just like the west, to think it knows best
When answers are subject to change

Mine are the eyes of god
And what I see is not what was meant to be
Mine are the eyes of god
Mine are the eyes
Mine are the eyes of god

They took what could have been
And turned it upside down
They twisted all things seen
What's lost must now be found

I got to see it
Got to believe it
I got to be there
I got to see it
Got to believe it

Given the power of reason yet throwing it all to the wind
No solution in evolution, only the blood-stained glass

A soul full of lies in contention, begs sacred yet worships profane
Lose sight of the fact that you're where it's at not the stars, not the cross,
Nor the moon

Mine are the eyes of god
And what I see is not what was meant to be
Mine are the eyes of god
Mine are the eyes
Mine are the eyes of god

    General Comment"Taught to believe from the onset, of heaven and hell and between
    The institution's retribution, damnation from on high"

    Being brainwashed from birth to believe in God or burn in hell.

    "Living and dying together never did nothing at all
    Except for the few who got rich off of you
    And the rest, they were herded like sheep"

    Religion's messages of peace and unity being exploited as a money-making gimmick for preachers and telemarketers.

    "The whole goddamn world is riding on words for thousands of years
    It's just like the west, to think it knows best
    When answers are subject to change"

    People still believing in religion even though thousands of years worth of intellectual evolution has made it pretty much useless, and the west pushing its beliefs on other parts of the world.

    "They took what could have been
    And turned it upside down
    They twisted all things seen
    What's lost must now be found"

    People twisting the Bible into their own words and misunderstanding the true meaning of things.

    "Given the power of reason yet throwing it all to the wind
    No solution in evolution, only the blood-stained glass"
    Again with the evolution thing. Our brains are capable of amazing things, we are intellectually above believing in religion and yet people continue doing it.

    And so on.
