Father, can you hear me?
How have I let you down?
I curse the day that I was born
And all the sorrow in this world

Let me take you to the hurting ground
Where all good men are trampled down
Just to settle a bet that could not be won
Between a prideful father and his son

Will you guide me now, for I can't see
A reason for the suffering and this long misery
What if every living soul could be upright and strong
Well, then I do imagine

There will be sorrow
Yeah, there will be sorrow
And there will be sorrow no more

When all soldiers lay there weapons down
Or when all kings and all queens relinquish their crowns
Or when the only true messiah rescues us from ourselves
It's easy to imagine

There will be sorrow
Yeah, there will be sorrow
And there will be sorrow no more

There will be sorrow
Yeah, there will be sorrow
And there will be sorrow no more

Yeah, there will be sorrow
Yeah, there will be sorrow
And there will be sorrow no more

    General CommentThe Pentateuch and the Torah are the holy books in Judaism, and they constitute the first five books of the Christian bible (Genesis through Deuteronomy). They're also some of the most horrible stuff ever written by Human beings -- rape, slavery, murder, infanticide, genocide, and with God condoning it at every step. In most cases, God is actually COMMANDING it.

    All Christians (and Jews and Muslims, since they believe in these horror stories too) should read through Numbers, Deuteronomy, and the book of Joshua. If more of them actually READ those parts of the bible instead of ignoring them, there would be a lot more atheists in the world.
