show me the pale phantom of Bethlehem
(we run, we run from reason)
no crackers born in the house of bread
(we run, we run from reason)
the west paints nails through lily white hands
for the nonsense our egos demand
(we run, we run from reason)

canvasses covered with apostate blood
for more portraits of the prophet's love
race didn't draw this battle line
this hate was an intelligent design
and it's a fucking lie

white Jesus!
the coward's redeemer
white Jesus!
that lies to believers
white Jesus!
betrays the healer
every page and brush's stride

white Jesus!
the coward's redeemer
white Jesus!
that lies to believers
white Jesus!
betrays the healer
so successfully divides

we've held tight these mythologies
and their subsequent iconography

we invented our architect
(we run, we run from reason)
and we placed that lie on a mortal neck
(we run, we run from reason)
made a one-way mirror of the planet's roof
let fear fuel our every tribute
(we run, we run from reason)

share the same worldview as medieval minds
heeding the threats of forgotten scribes
slaughter and slave for paradise
and cry intolerance when criticized
and it's a fucking lie
