Father I have sinned
Forgive me for I don't know what to do
I have become devoid of faith
I am devoid of faith
As I mutter these words into his ear
His hypocritical eyes show me the origin of fear
Suddenly it seems he has lost all faith
In the one who's faulty life he helped erased
He tells me that he can make things right
I take his inverted symbol of everlasting life
And brand it on his flesh, in between his eyes
This is a cold blooded crime
But it just feels so right
The upper hand is mine
And so is his life
On this cold night my sermon be preached before his majesty
Now overthrown to be silenced by violence
This is not the devil's work
This is my murder sermon, proven to be real
Murder sermon
Murder sermon
On this cold night my sermon be preached before his majesty
Now overthrown to be silenced by violence
This is not the devil's work
This is my murder sermon, proven to be real
I cannot be changed
You're the one to blame
Stare into the face
Of the one you can't save
So now you've taken all you can ingest
I rip your still beating heart from your chest
Look me in the eye as you take your last breath
I hope your soul never rests
I cannot be changed
You're the one to blame
Stare into the face
Of the one you can't save

    Song MeaningMurder Sermon - "This is the song I wrote about killing my step-father after his lies, deceit and promises he made. He brought religion into it and was completely hypocritical about it. He got my mom addicted to crack which eventually led to her death. This was a dream I had of killing him and shoving his religion down his throat that he preached. Another thing I am not proud of."

    General CommentHere's what vocalist Phil Bozeman said about the song:

    "Basically my dad died and she (his mother) re-married years later and met my step-dad who hooked her on drugs and he promised to “save” our family and make things right. Well, if that meant hooking my mother on crack cocaine and causing her to over-dose and die then he succeeded. If I could murder anyone in the world he would be my first pick."
