Wipe out all the wonder from creation,
replace it all with fractals,
and synthesize the beauty and design
Pulling wings off spiritual flies
So smug and oh so certain
that yours is the enlightened state of mind
Your soul will contemplate its emptiness
Mired in the figures and equations in your head
Embrace the black!

Turn away from civilized society
Wrap yourself in ignorance
and force us to accept on pain of death
Marry myths with superstitious nonsense
And damn the nonbelievers
Salvation's yours, to hell with all the rest
No absolutes are so self-evident
Twisted by your hate,
the very word of God an instrument of death

And who can say which to path to take,
or bind another's fate?
A billion-fold extremists' point of view create our hell
Each must be entitled to the conscience of the King
There's nothing left to wait for but the tolling of the bell

    General CommentThe Atheist extreme suffers from the same blindness and ignorance as the religious extreme: they view the world as black and white, us and them, God versus science.

    General CommentThis song condemns both atheistic and Christian extremists, from a Christian point of view. The Darwinists "wipe out all the wonder of creation" by stating that the universe was not a product of intelligent design, and the Christian extremists believe that they will be the only ones saved, "to hell with all the rest".

    BOTH of them are as bad for society as the other, both "create our hell", and both will, at the end of time, be "entitled to the conscience of the King" and face liability for their actions. All that we have to do to solve the battle is wait for that time to come.
