Idle chatter sounds much better to the absent mind.
Govern me, kill thy master.
You will not enslave me.
The root is bitter but the fruit is sweet but not exempt from criticism.
Small pox friendship, you die I take.
You are the new slave.
Don't call me God because I don't have a disease.
What is cold to you is love to me.
Savior seething rolling you in.
Cherub in red said there's nothing to see here.
Hallowed be who art in heaven.
I refuse to call that fucker by name.

    General Commentthis song, i think, is about taking back yourself from the confines of religion. it's not for everyone.

    while it helps some, it inihibits others. how can anyone say that we all must follow one thing through life? people are so diverse. it's evident in the amount of motor vehicles out there. if two people can't agree on the same type of vehicle, why must they concur in religion?

    just leave people alone.

    General CommentI think its the second part to For You, since the two songs run together. In anycase, Jacob Bannon is a fucking amazing lyricist, and these proove it. This song is absolutely insane aswell, in a good way.
