I feel as if the weight of the world
is forever crashing down around me
Everything I ever held true was a lie
I became everything that I once despised
You showed me what it meant to be holy
I know now it means nothing to me
Sowing seeds, yet bearing no fruit
You speak of truth
Truth is, I want nothing to do with you.
It's all a lie. It's falsified.
A fabrication strung together with the intent to control.
Ammunition for your rhetoric that's centuries old
Carefully constructing your convictions
Held strong to a lie
Spreading false truth, it's in the air like a plague
A thin veil for an unjust system of hate.
You've sown your seeds.
You've grown your trees.
What little fruit they've bore
Is fucking rotten to the core.
You'll never have me back
You never had my back
You embraced me just so you could find the best place to stab.
I'm laying waste to your God complex
your self righteousness, it knows no depths
With your faith as a weapon, your God as your shield
your forked tongue still lashes,
these wounds will never heal
You were the demon that was hidden in my head
This is my fall from grace,
This is your end
I will not allow these wasted years to control my life
I will revolt against the beings who created this plight.
Religion will die.
Fuck your God.
Religious bodies litter this land.
