He sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see
He tries to tell me what I put inside of me
He got the answers to ease my curiosity
He dreamed up a god and called it Christianity

God is dead and no one cares
If there is a hell, I'll see you there

He flexed his muscles to keep his flock of sheep in line
He made a virus that would kill off all the swine
His perfect kingdom of killing, suffering and pain
Demands devotion atrocities done in his name

God is dead and no one cares
If there is a hell, I'll see you there
Your god is dead and no one cares
If there is a hell, I'll see you there

God is dead and no one cares
If there is a hell, I'll see you there
(Your god is dead) God is dead and no one cares (and no one cares)
(Drowning in his own hypocrisy) If there is a hell, I'll see you there

    General CommentFunny how the song doesn't have a single line that's specific to Christianity*. It could very well refer to Jews. Notice how no one ever attacks this song as an attack on Jews or Sikhs?

    The fact that people immediately assume that this song is about christians tells you something very interesting about christians, and how the world perceives them -- as blind, naive, bigoted, clueless murderers. Would this association be so easy, immediate, and universal if didn't contain a very serious kernel of truth? Something to think about.

    * except maybe the line about the plague, referring to the belief among some bigots that the HIV virus exists to wipe out Homosexuals despite homosexuality existing in every society in all of history, and actually being COMMONPLACE in classical Greece -- a society that was conspicuously plague-free and upon which all western society is based...)
