strapped into the chair the needle now decends as they lick their cracking lips their twitching never ends blood beneath their fingernails, swallow all my pain dirty needles break the skin now suck hard as i drain sunken eyes, a twisted spine a whiter shade of pale rockabilly man come to pound the coffin nails inject my stomach full of cockaroach eggs their machine is coming carried on a million legs waking in the sleep of reason, winter is the forever season lick thy mother's bleeding lips from this glass of hate we sip fuck the glass we pump the keg kill conception at the egg her chin is wet with someone's hate love, disfigure, amputate, can you remember how it felt to be alive? your god machine is cold and dead your eyes they cannot cry. fuck your dieties of dying love we have shot them down from the skies above. screaming, convulsing my eyes are bleeding be silent now and take your beating, i wonder how long you would live with a bullet in your gut i wonder how much shit you'd talk if your throat was cut i wonder what you'd sound like begging me to let you breath i wonder how much pain it would take to make you all belive.

    General Commentit is about religion from the perspective of the clergy people being a bunch of mad scientists. their turning all these people into zombie followers. interesting combining science and religion. other opinions would be great.

    General CommentIt drives me nuts when people think science and religion don't go together at all. If people were intelligent enough to realize that if a religion were true then science would be completely right, just it would be composed of/made by the God of the religion.

    General CommentI completely agree Qotsa, who the fuck is to say that God didn't create humans simply by creating the basics for everything and letting it evolve?

    General CommentIt would make sense that they went together if everything that certain religions were based upon (for example, Christianity), didn't oppose everything that science is.
