Treachery with a smile, etched upon its face
A face of red, but a heart of stone cold black
Servants of two masters, the congregation splits
Serving sexual rituals, true back-biters

Pirates in pinstripe, admired by the many in the hour of weakness
Always, stand with their backs to the sun
Religious fanatics, muttering righteousness on sacred ground
The armor of religion like foil across a bed of nails

Conscience, burning, lives held
Hostage to heaven

Symbolic bullshit, hung around the necks of the weak
Silver and gold, just trinkets of deception
One man's faith becomes another man's evil
Don't deny the power of inner strength, right

Conscience, burning, lives held
Hostage to heaven

Conscience, burning, lives held
Hostage to heaven
