Sewing the eyes shut of the man who saw god
And ceasing the lies that spill from his jaw (2x)

He won't be able to hear where the screams are coming from (2x)
Sewing the eyes shut of the man who saw god
And ceasing the lies that spill form his jaw

It's just an endless abyss of pain and torment
And he will wonder where the screams are coming from
And how does he know
Their cries (2x)

Because it's your fucking flock heading to the butcher (2x)
As the tears began to burn like acid
As they spill from his eyes (2x)

Sewing the eyes shut of the man who saw god
And ceasing the lies that spill from his jaw
And as I toture and kill
The ones who followed him
In his lies (3x)
Followed him in his lies

    General Commenti think he's talking about how, if he could, he'd kill everyone who started the religion of christianity, jesus' followers and maybe jesus. Then none of this 'wasted time in prayer' or 'years spent searching' would be happening.

    I love his passion for trying to destroy the image of God.

    General CommentI'm not sure but reading these lyrics for the first time, it wants to say how people trying to make people believe in god are totaly wrong. But that would be pretty obvious

    General CommentIf you listen to the song The Fallen you know why Mitch, the singer, hates god and Christianity so much. And his reason is actually my same reason to. It is because we both followed god and prayed everyday or whatever but when we really needed god he was not there for us so we choose to hate him for it.
