"Death Church" as written by Robert Conrad Flynn, Adam Duce, Chris Kontos and Logan Conrad Mader....
Well I look at justice in a different light
I been to jail, it didn't make me right
Try and conform but won't be deaf blind dumb
Been beaten down, just harder I've become

Death church rising
Hate church rising
Lost church rising
Death church rising

Hey Jesus can you help me with my pain
Mainline me some religion, keep me sane
Christ suffering upon my TV screen
Send in your money to the faith obscene

Death church rising
Hate church rising
Lost church rising
Death church rising

Strength, truth and honor. words I strive to live
Your faith's profane, it takes never gives
'Cause I'm gonna die standing upon my feet
You're gonna die grovelling on your knees

Death church rising
Hate church rising
Lost church rising
Death church rising

    General CommentFYI - The intro to this song is taken from Charles Manson's testimony. Its a little hard to make out but is clearer on their demo version:

    "Is it a conspiracy that the music is telling the youth to rise up against the establishment because the establishment is rapidly destroying things? Is that a conspiracy? The music speaks to you every day, but you are too deaf, dumb, and blind to even listen to the music. . . It is not my conspiracy. It is not my music. I hear what it relates. It says "Rise," it says "Kill." Why blame it on me? I didn't write the music. . . . "

    General CommentOne of my favourite MH songs. To me it is talking about the "sins" of people, but that "church" itself is a prison and that people are so busy trying to appease their religion that they may forfeit their humanity (or free will).

    The last two lines paraphrase a famous quote by Zapata:

    "I'd rather die on my feet, than live on my knees"

    Which I believe is the message largely behind this song.
