They told you not to yield to temptation and opened their arms...
...Make your own inferences...

Inscrutable chaos in my head
Greed will take its toll
There's no place to hide
Let me free myself

The anathema's driving millions
together in the pustules of our earth
Greed and self-denial the cause of
unimpeded desecration of the truth

They told you not to yield to temptation
but offered you only hypocrisy and ruin

The phantom of damnation
threw her coat over humanity

Captive in the shackles of this indoctrination
depraved souls wished to be pure
Delight in deformity the last convulsions
are building up a bridge to a new era
The assumption of a faded supposition
Never shall I be a marionette !

The embrace that smothers...

    General CommentThis song is the 3rd song of the 'Embrace that Snothers' written by Mark Jansen.

    Like every other song in this serie, it critizises religion as being a smothering embrace to our induviduality and sanity.

    The song itself tells about how religion indoctrinated us for ages, made us fear and hate and it tells us that now the time is come to stand up and think for ourselves again. Stop letting them think for you, make your own decisions.

    Mark even screams to the end of the song "never shall I be a marrionette", never shall I be a slave to the system again.
