At the pinnacle of mediocrity
The priest of high hypocrisy
His web of deceit spread across the land

Enslaver of the gullible
Declarer of the fanciful
Darkness descent by his hand

How many time have the innocent
Unjustly suffered your wrath
Condemned to the pyre
And the mercy of the blade

Of the courageous few who testified
To the fallacy of the cross
Their noble lives were sacrificed
At the altar of corruption

Guilt in the innocent
Fear in the young
A false sense of righteousness in the wrong

Self depravation
Genital mutilation
These offerings are laid
At the altar of corruption

The bewildered herd is bonded
Under the guilt-lash born youth
Shackles and chains may never assuage
The thirst tormenting the seekers of truth

The rabid pack will bay for blood
In the frenzy of the kill
Propitiations of smoldering flesh
Fail to coerce the earth be still

Fearsome tales of torture
March unchallenged throught the night
Anguished screams fade to whisper
In the coldness of the light

Hasten the day when the darkness is expelled
See the blood of the righteous spilled
Free the yoke from this brave new world
Over the corpse of the one god, felled
