Years of abuse hidden over time
Lives are shattered by hideous crimes
Using religion abusing their faith
To trap their adolescent prey
Ignoring the signs to turn the other cheek
Predators' preservation for the weak
Faulting all others accepting no blame
This has been the cardinal's way

Never spoken up he always knew
The cardinal's law hiding the truth
Secret now crumbles for the priests
This sickness now has to cease
Spreading like a horrible virus
They are sent to another parish
Unknown of the fear they'll bring
To their followers and offspring
Kept in the dark for too many years
This sick reality now becomes clear
Its time for all to open your eyes
They all have been feeding you lies

Sick and twisted acts of depravity
A disorder he helped create and now he must face
All trust shattered by the many years of lies
A man of the cloth whose morals have been lost

A media blitz revealing the facts
Knowledge of these abhorrent acts
He possessed but never unveiled
All decency now as failed
Now he's lost and can't provide
Places for these fuckers to hide
He's the one who chose this path
Time to face the wrath.
