"Failed Creation" as written by Dino A.m. Cazares, Timothy Ying Wai Yeung and Thomas R. Cummings....
Failed creation
In all his arrogance
Revelation has prophesied retribution
A plague of suffering castigations

Open your fucking eyes! (x3)

Seas wash us away
Wars being waged
Famine stricken cultures still enslaved
Blind to the signs
A fate we've contrived
Marching headfirst into this...

Grand damnation
The final holocaust
Casting us as one into abyss
Submerged beneath oceans of self-disgust
All forsaken
And burning for their lies(x2)
Open your fucking eyes!

Seas wash us away
Wars being waged
Famine stricken cultures still enslaved
Blind to the signs
A fate we've contrived
Marching toward the...

End of time!
Are we so blind to the signs?
Suffer the fate we've contrived

Descending hollow shells
Precipitation of shrapnel
Falling from the sky

Chemical gassing the terrified masses
Engulfing the world in denial
In denial!

Absolution cleansing their wicked minds
Entradition for sins comprised
Penitence, man kneeling before his cross
Ask yourself where...
Where does his judgment lie? (x2)
Open your fucking eyes!

Seas wash us away
Wars being waged
Famine stricken cultures still enslaved
Blind to the signs
A fate we've contrived
Marching toward the...

End of time
Are we so blind to the signs?
Suffer the fate we've contrived
This time their lies
Rendering our senses so blind
Suffer this fate we've contrived

    General CommentBlizzaine, he's not talking about how religion is a lie. He's talking about how humanity is a failure because of itself. It says in the opening verse that humanity was created out of God's arrogance (a common theme in early gnostic religions and a particular Luciferian order).

    I believe this idea is mirrored in the band's name. What at first sounds like an oxymoron could be a label for humanity. Humans are a divine heresy.

    The song then goes on to describe the ultimate destruction of mankind on a global scale starting with war and famine, then getting more obscure. I think he's talking about the fact that governments blind their citizens to keep them complacent even though the world is falling apart all around them.

    The verse I think Blizzaine took to mean that religion is a lie is actually asking a question, which I believe is, "Will humanity be forgiven by their God?"

    The last couple parts are reiterating that humanity is blind to the world around them because of government lies. That this fate self-made and inevitable.

    General CommentPholseprophet I couldn't of said it better myself, really I couldnt have. I fucking LOVE songs like this, I could definately get into thos band. I totally agree with what you said about it.

    Heres the best part:
    Seas wash us away
    Wars being waged
    Famine stricken cultures still enslaved
    Blind to the signs
    A fate we've contrived
    Marching headfirst into this...

    Every bit of it's trie, and I love it. We have contrived (forced) this fate upon ourselfs, if you ever heard of Nostradamus and looked into him he talks about this shit to. We are being taken out by natural disasters, countries are in a fucking pointless war with each other and since we don't want to do what's right it's gonna escalate into something even worst. These starving people all ove, like in Africa, are pretty much slaves to their leaders. We have forced ourself into this by focusing on stupid shit and not watching out for ourselfs but our leaders and these major powers only think for themselves (global warming to -.-). Then it goes on to say we're marching right into Grand damnation, The final holocaust, and the end of time. These guys better make more albums.
