"Puritan" as written by and Chris Beattie James Shanahan....
Bastard cries
Feeds the fire
The burning desire to rob human life
In this world full of fear of the unknown
Twisting the perception of the weak
Lying to progress
Only achieving greed

Seated behind the sun
Myths bleed into one
Searching for a saviour to lead us through this life
Where our sanity is undone

Killing against our will
Killing for the bastard maker
The fairy tale
The non-existent

Salvation so bittersweet the taste brought fear to our tongues
Preying on the weak
Fatherless creation encased in the depths of humanity
They continue to rape and call it purity

I will not bow down because of our past
I see now mankind was not meant to last

Killing against our will
Killing for the bastard maker
The fairy tale
The non-existent

Salvation so bittersweet the taste brought fear to our tongues
Preying on the weak
Fatherless creation encased in the depths of humanity
They continue to rape and call it purity

I see now mankind was not meant to last

    General Commentnah it's about the way christianity has operated for millenia. cliche example is the crusades. a lot of the songs from this album are about false salvation.

    General CommentAnti-Christian message? Yes. Crusades and child molestation? I doubt it.
