Your God is a fossil
abandoned aposotles
stand and join hands to behold

your godless disciples
abandon your idols
stand and join hands to behold

Champagne
Cocaine
vicoten
adderol
nicotine
caffine
percosets
tyladol

Jesus needs his prescriptions filled
buddahs usin'
too many pills

allah promises endless thrills
in volatile bottles marked
RELIGION KILLS!!!!

this is the ache
we can't escape.
betrayed!

one day this could be you


were just another
nail in the coffin

another
knot in the noose

it's just another squeeze of the trigger

one more hue
in the bruise

champagne
cocaine
vicoden
adderol
nicotine
caffiene
percosets
tyladol

christians rollin' on ecstasy
jehovas smokin' too much PCP

mother mary carries a junkie messiah
shooting smack & smokin' crack with the King of Liars!

this is the ache
we can't escape.
betrayed!

one day this could be you


were just another
nail in the coffin

another
knot in the noose

it's just another squeeze of the trigger

one more hue
in the bruise


this is for a lifetime.. OF SHIT!
Get down and crawl,crawl
you fucking insect
Get down and crawl,crawl
you fucking insect
Get down and crawl
Get down and crawl
Get down and crawl
The remedy is worse than the disease
The remedy is worse than the disease!!
My life spills out just like dead flies

Your god is a fossil abandon the appsosals get down and join hands to explode
your godless desciples abandon the rifles get down and join hands to explode to explode to explode to explode

My life spills out just like dead flies

    General Commentthis song is awesome. its comparing drug insanity with religion. people like religion because it tells people what to do, and how to do it, so they don't have to think or feel. different name, same effects - numbness mindlessness and insanity. i think its against organized religion. the last verse or so, "join hands to explode" is like "dying for god"
    really, there are a lot of interpretations.

    General Commentanother part of this song that can be interperated is abandon your rifles, this can be saying that in society today religions are starting to provoke less violence despite their violent past(puritans at the salem witch trials, cathlics with the holocaust, etc) and that many religious lobbiest and religious politicians are pushing for anti-gun laws despite the constitution. but as living shadow said this can be viewed in many diffrent ways so all dependxs on your mind set or how otep wanted to write it.

    General CommentBuddha's*

    Champagne cocaine vicodin atarol nicotine caffeine percosets halodol

    Krsna's rollin' on ecstasy...

    Just stuff I noticed.
    Anyway...I pretty much agree with the first two interpretations. But beside the point, my favorite song by Otep is this one. I love it.

    General CommentI feel like in this song she is proclaiming her atheism, and she is putting down religions. She is also claiming that religious nuts also act as if they were on drugs.
