morality strikes, put your mind to the scale if you're willing
you know just where you stand.
there's a fine line from faith to corruption.
we grow up hating others perceptions.
wrong is right in this world that we live in.
how could you kill to appeal to a fucking religion?
just do as you're told, do as you're told.


deep beneath you
must lie a reason,
behind the story your faith has sold you.
continue to believe
without questioning.

we live and we learn, but for some
minds are set in up-bringing.
you know only beliefs
that were planted inside you so early.
life is short, it can pass in a heart beat.
waste away to amount to something?
how could you kill to appeal to some fucking religion?
just do as you're told, do as you're told
