Greed and addiction drowned their pity
washed away their thoughts of compassion and regrets
A world left wounded, slaved and raped you paradise a hell for your descendants

Cathedrals of justice in a kingdom of hypcorisy
castles of self-righteousness built on graves

Masses kept in forlorn, nations laid to waster
The dynamo of a northern golden age
Darkened our future, blinded by greed
sold your fate to the highest price.

I don't believe in you
You are the enemy
A rush into our doom, as if your God came down
and cures all failure

    General CommentI dont think its about religion being shit. I think its about the people who run religion being corupt and making it shit. 'Blinded by greed', 'Greed and addiction drowned their pity'. Can you see what I mean?

    General CommentIt sounds like hes talking about the catholic church

    Cathedrals of justice in a kingdom of hypocrasy

    The catholic church is known for its cathedrals, and in the dark ages they were used as instruments of controlling people, which they called the justice of God,
    yet the priests and popes were secretly involved in orgies, sex scandals, tortuing REAL believers of Christ etc.

    Castles of self-righteousness built on graves

    thats basically what the catholic church is built upon, graves of those that were killed for her cause.

    The truth is, no religion will get you anywhere, its personal faith in a personal God through our messiah Jesus
