"Sacrifice" as written by Richard Barbieri, Steven Jansen, Mick Karn and Theo Travis....

God is nothing more than an obsessive lie.
While Sunday school children are brainwashed into the line,
And presented with as truth what's really just a lie,
Another childs' self-belief is sacrificed.

In the eyes of the lord, men are his servants,
In the eyes of the lord, women are mens' servants,
In the eyes of the lord, we're authority's servants,
In the eyes of the lord, everyone's a servant.

Sexual roles perversely glorified,
Beyond virgin motherhood, all status is denied.
But starvation and death's; the real testiment
To the truth of the god your bible represents.

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this god of songs.

    This is sacrilegious.

    Anyway...I'm pretty sure everyone gets the meaning of this song from the lyrics.

    The emotion that Nick Blinko put into it is amazing.
