"Mrs. Modern Mother Mary" as written by and Daniel Gildenloew....
We'll cut you down to size
There is a woman burning at the center square
Raven black eyes and long let out hair
Screaming, while cloaked vultures holier-than-thou
Circle and glare at sweat drops on pale skin like satin
And as the raging flames work her into cinder
Said in their defence:
Stupidity and ignorance, prejudice and intolerance
All sound so much wiser when dressed up in Latin

Life will never be the same
I have a bigger world since I found God
Truth will never be the same
I'm in a righter mind since I found God
I found...

Mrs Modern Mother Mary, all pale and weary
From raising her overweight kids in the outskirts of Suburbia
On a nice christian gender based salary
And a church she can merely attend
And there on the flip-side of Caucasia we see
Miss Modern Mary Magdalene gone Deep Throat
On international cabel TV

So you keep talking about progress and equality
But to me, the crusade is still on my friend
Silly me who always thought life was for the living
And giving in to lust was all to give and to be given

Life will never be the same
I have a better view since I found God
Guilt will never be the same
I'm on a higher ground since I found God
I found God...

Life will never be the same
I have a better view now
There's always someone else to blame
I'm on the winning team now
Death will never be the same
I'm in the faster lane now
No more am I the one to blame
I have a juster cause now

Love will never be the same
Lust will never be the same
Shame will never be the same
I will never be the same
And
You will never be the same

    General CommentHave you ever seen those polls that say that religious people are happier than atheists? This song is about people that lie to themselves about the supposed "good" in religion and then do horrific things. It's 2007 and most Americans still believe in sky fairies.

    General CommentAnorak is completely correct. The song goes into the hypocracy and self delusion of relgion. The song contrasts old witch burnings because of faith to the ridiculous acts and atrocities that still occur today. Starting wars with 'god's blessing' and using religion to help justify violence, torture, destruction, and genocide.
