How can we grow if we are living in the past,
Where progression is condemned and life is only just a path,
To an unknown unreal existence?
Better yet, how can anyone believe it?
You told me that Jesus loves us all but you sleep on the streets.
You pray to god every night but your family can't eat.
I know that you aren't stupid, so what are you doing?
It is not just yourself its the fucking world that it's screwing.

His eternal love has bred and epidemic of hate.
Killed off our free will and replaced it with fate.
Until our seeds are born unpoisoned and uncontaminated,
Future generations will only know miseducation.
It's a scary situation when it's captured most of the entire fucking nation.

I wish more than anything, for society to change,
Stop Killing!
Stop dying over religion and relying on god to feed their children,
Living life without feeling.

It's a degradation to humanity,
To believe that we all subserviently
Accept a life of disease,
And wage slavery.
And they continue to teach the kids their lives are out of their reach.

The cyclical onslaught leaves a bloody red chord,
In the name of the imaginary almighty lord. Everyone is killing each other because god loves us all.
There's no hope for change unless this bullshit falls.

There can be no peace until we murder the lord.

Religion is a drain on society, and has held us back for centuries.
Countless acts of violence and atrocities,
Committed in the name of a supreme being.

Evolution means anti-religion,
And until we get there society is living in a fucking prison,
Because of a unsightly regressive history decorated with war.
There can be no peace 'til we murder the lord.
Evolution means anti-religion,
And until we get there society is living in a fucking prison,
Because of a unsightly regressive history decorated with war.
There can be no peace 'til we murder the fucking lord.

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on any of their stuff. This song kicks ass it's so straight to the point and couldn't have been said any better. My favorite on the CD.
