"Anthropocentric" as written by and Robin Staps....
As the symbols of the metaphysics of the hangman are taken off the walls of our living rooms,
Humanity emancipates
Christ statues fall and die of age,
Just like us: inorganic decay.
The myths of the martyrs have waned
No longer do we mourn their loss.
Their children dance and play their games
In the shadow of the great old white cross.

Wealth heals all wounds and alleviates any kind of pain.
The shroud of the collective oblivion coats any individual scars.
The widows of the skeptical have passed away before they could retaliate.
And those who baptized the world with the sword have long been buried,
And have not arisen from their graves.

The guardians of righteousness have lost their immaculity.
The rise of the enlightenment has defeated Christianity.
But its legacy of fear and submissiveness prevails
In many brave man's heart and soul:
The saddening conception that humanity cannot choose its own destiny.
With our lives based on the hope for salvation,
The humanist paradigm is nothing but a charade.
Condemned to inertia; a passive race,
We wait and contemplate.

And, even in these days and age some people still believe
That Earth is at the center of God's own universe,
And that man was made the 7th day, evolution is a myth,
And that even bones of ancient creatures are no evidence
Of the fact that we are not the end of the chain.
And they won't leave their ship that is sinking.
They refuse to leave their ship that is sinking.

And while they spoke of grace and love, forgiveness from above,
They nailed thousands of non-believers to their crude symbol of love
And they won't leave their ship that is sinking.
They refuse to leave their ship that is sinking.

The myth that man is the crown of God's creation
Breeds the excuse to deplete the Earth today.
The myth that man is the crown of God's creation
Supports our present anthropocentric misconception.

And even in these days and age some people still believe
That Earth is at the center of God's own universe,
Of the fact that we are not the end of the chain.
And they won't leave their ship that is sinking.
They refuse to leave their ship that is sinking.

The myth that man is the crown of God's creation
Breeds the excuse to deplete the Earth today.
The myth that man is the crown of God's creation
Supports our present anthropocentric misconception.
