Close your eyes and just ignore
all that is wrong with your beliefs.
What better way to be devout?
Hammer down the innocent minds
of those trusting boys and girls,
And shut the door on your way out.

You think to build a master faith
on torture and pain?
No room for logic or debate,
in God's domain?

Hide your young away and
teach them only what you know to be.
God's honest truth in vast supply
What you teach is so implausible,
You cannot trust the world
to not convince them otherwise.

How pitiful this land of yours
Where free thought is feared
And make you isolate
and force your children to revere.

Close your eyes and just ignore
all that is wrong with your beliefs.
What better way to be devout?
Hammer down the innocent minds
of those trusting boys and girls,
And shut the door on your way out.

No one will stand in the way of your bastard parade.
But the hateful and fearing will come to your aid.
Even the youngest have a place in your crusade.
There is no defiance there when you invade.
You think to build the master faith on torture and pain?
With indoctrination the true God will reign.
No room for logic or debate, in your domain.

    General CommentThat "mindraping" person itself is religious.
    See:
    "Close your eyes and just ignore
    all that is wrong with your beliefs.
    What better way to be devout?"

    And it teaches his religion to children and if a child grows up with a religion, there's a little chance it can ever get away from it. So that person takes away the right of child to choose it's religion itself.
    See:
    "Hammer down the innocent minds
    of those trusting boys and girls,
    And shut the door on your way out."

    Further, the song criticizes intolerant thinking and religions.
    See:
    "How pitiful this land of yours
    Where free thought is feared."
    "No room for logic or debate,
    in God's domain?"
    "No room for logic or debate, in your domain."
