...But the road to hell is paved with good intentions,
and whether or not you were trying to ruin my friend -
the simple fact is that you almost did.
and I just watched him succumb to your steps
and your higher powers
just call it what it is:
a shame based cult that helps a few and condemns the rest.
You should find better ways to help
without oligatory surrending of self to a metaphor for the christian god.
Find people who need your help,
let them know that they are fundamentally okay
(not predestined fuck-ups).
Dogma must be scrapped
and in its place an environment to grow.
So much potential to do so much...
believe in yourselves to fight your demons.
Believe in yourselves and not some power.
You're just trading one addiction for another.

Three years of life searching for this...glimpse of serenity. Objections controlled rather than follow I walked by self looking for truths in your words. None found. Now my friends immersed, abandonded by me, should I feed her the lies I was told? Your addictions misplaced on me without thought they may not be mine. Three years of my life wasted for this. Can't find your serenity.

    General CommentThis is one of the most passionate songs ever. Instrumentaly it's not special per se, but the dual vocals brings out the heart of the amazing lyrics, from a perspective not often heard of. Amazing. It gives me shivers every time I hear it.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. It starts out so powerfully. The dual vocals just add. I usually have a distaste for singing and screaming combined, but The Khayhembii Communique do this vocalling approach justice, a whole lotta justice.

    General CommentOh and I was reading A Million Little Pieces by James Frey, which I reccomend to anyone, and in it was written "Replacement of one addiction for another addiction. Replacement of a chemical for a God."
    I immediately thought of this song. Replacement of drugs, in this case, for religion. Which is what has been implemented everywhere. "If you have a problem, turn to God." No, if you have a problem, turn to something that has a working mind and can think.

    'nuff said.
