We hang on every word that you preach to us
No more questioning, your views your reasons
We’re subservient pawns in your master plan
We look to you to guide us home

We wanted to live to shine
To give light to a world that’s dying
But you took us down a path so cold
Just a blind pursuit for fool’s gold

Darkness settles over
This Peoples Temple crumbles
Evil settles over
This fertile marshy land

You took away our freedom
You took away our children
The only reason we followed
Your views, your every word

Some see God inside your body
Some see Christ inside of you
A hope of glory
I see the fraud

Some see God inside your body
Some see Christ inside of you
A hope of glory
Take them away
All the words you say
