Bow down- before the god of cash
The philosophy of modern man is leaking fast
No foundation for the fram by which you set your mind
Just a legacy for the feeble to find

Desperation breeding faith unto a pitiful lie
"Give us your money and we'll open up your gullible eyes"
No redemption, not a reason, but a symbol of why
This digression of surrender is the science of lies

Believe the sacred blasphemy
They feed
That hollow voice inside your head
Receive the fleeting fallacy
They breathe
Trace every step from where you were led
Look back and tell yourself what they said
(Now flee)

And now you feel it pulling you down
How can you buy into a faith that hasn't permanent ground?
Give me blood-soacked, sacrificial worth
Not the artificial product of a fraudulent birth

Give me selfless, consecrated reprise
Not a worthless contribution to the science of lies


Feel it pulling down

    General CommentGiven the name of the song, and the lines "bow down before the god of cash" and "Give us your money and we'll open up your gullible eyes" leads me to believe that this song is about Scientology. Seriously, what kind of "religion" requires money to know the truths of the "faith".
    I use "religion" and faith" lightly in that last sentence.

    General Commentfrom
    “The Science Of Lies” is about the popularization of Scientology in today’s society. I did some research on Scientology and found it to be one of the most absurd “religions” I’ve ever heard of. It’s a cult based around mental health and what seems to be some sort of science fiction- involving aliens and other plants. Scientology’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard actually used to write science fiction novels for a living before he decided to bring his stories to life in a cult. L. Ron Hubbard, who claimed to be a nuclear physicist (which is untrue), apparently realized the “truths” of Scientology on an operating table after sustaining injuries in the war. These “truths” include the idea that aliens, called Thetans, were sent here on a mother ship from an overpopulated galaxy named Xenu 75 million years ago. These Thetans we dropped here on earth and killed with hydrogen bombs. Now their spirits infest our human bodies and it’s our task to remind them of their tragic death, in order to kill them and thus, rid ourselves of these alien spirits that haunt us. The kicker is that, as a part of The Church of Scientology, you need to pay exuberant amounts of money to find out the truths of the “religion,” which is why the more popular members are Hollywood’s elite.

    In short, this song is about the ridiculousness of this cult and how tragic it is that anyone would believe in it.

    General CommentThe only reason it's supported is because of it's celebrity support.

    General CommentTrue. Scientology, I mean. Xenu the tough little space-invader blew up 22 million people on a volcano, and that's how we got born? Oh and we've got evil Tetans on us, BEWARE!!! Go to the local scientologists' and buy an auditititition casette, only for 100.000$, fellas!!

    It's stupid. And it's funny since Tom Cruise and John Travolta are scientologists, and guess why :D
