My darker feelings about some of the people we share the planet with, and their irrational, hypocritical beliefs.


God Is Asleep

Stunned by the cold
Of the killing reign
An asylum ruled
By the crazed and deranged
Will we hide, will we cry
As they drain the world dry
Under banners waving "God Loves You"?
Fine supreme being, what can he do
In his sleep?
It's all a bad dream

How does he sleep
Through the waves of pain
In the sea of life
We destroy in his name?
Flaming greed, crawling fears
Poison lies, flooding tears
Will the peace that he finds in the dawn
Come of waking to find we are all gone?

God is asleep
And we are his nightmare

It's alright, angel
Just a bad dream
Go back to sleep
