"Crucifix" as written by and Ryan Clark....
We will trample on our children 'til this world is flooded red
No boundary for depravity, no silence for the dead
Now weep for the life that you've lead
We will follow vacant voices into a shallow grave
Reiterate the verses of some self consuming slave
Now pay for the hell that you praise

Every curse, lie, violation of our lives
Every careless shallow breath, corruption of our minds
All the blood and the shame, defamation of name
The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless, crucifix
Embodied on a blood soaked, crucifix, crucifix

The sacrament is broken, and all I see is red
The idols of humanity they tower overhead
Now weep for the life that you've lead
The gates have severed open, setting death upon this place
Compelling us to hope in a revolting human race
Now pay for the hell that you praise

Every curse, lie, violation of our lives
Every careless shallow breath, corruption of our minds
All the blood and the shame, defamation of name
The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless, crucifix
Embodied on a blood soaked, crucifix, crucifix

My eyes have seen

Sometimes I close my eyes to escape this crooked place
It seems these fools will never learn
I guess it's easy to see the world the way I do
The emptiness is a promise, the sin is just the proof

Embodied on a thankless, crucifix, crucifix

My eyes have seen

    My InterpretationSeems to suggest that a lot of people are "evil" because they've forsaken Christianity (or at least allowed themselves to stray from the path). The world is too much for them to bear (with the wickedness).

    The title suggests that Jesus' crucifixion was in vain for so many ... who may have died for "our" sins to allow us to enter Heaven, but so many continue to sin that Jesus' sacrifice is ignored by so many.
