Lift up a stone and you will find him,
Cherish the beauty in the world around us
Not in buildings or crosses made by man.

Judge me, fuck you, stop playing god,
Your forked tongue prophecies
Carelessly caressing the wounds of the weak
People like you should be crucified,
Then maybe just maybe you would have an idea
Of what you are talking about.

My only solace is that one day,
Judgment will come for the wicked,
Then we will see who burns. [x2]

Raise up your heads, unclasp your hands,
Your weakness makes me tremble
True strength comes from within
And we were given this life to live,
Not exist under standards,
Set by some bullshit rule book.

What prayers of yours,
Were ever answered,
By degrading others
Spare me your biblical back peddling nonsense
For the people that you've hurt,
And the being you dishonor,
Your fall from grace,
Will finally justify my means.

Judge me and now you are me and what's worse
You are now a traitor to your god
Tell me Judas, how does it feel to be looked down upon?
Sinners like you, should be strung up from the highest tree.

My only solace is that one day,
Judgment will come for the wicked,
Then we will see who burns. [x2]

Raise up your heads, unclasp your hands,
Your weakness makes me tremble
True strength comes from within
And we were given this life to live,
Not exist under standards,
Set by some bullshit rule book.

You judged me and now you are me, stop playing god.
You judged me and now you are me, stop playing god.

    the song is more about the christians that are judgemental to a fault. Some christians seem to take delight in looking down at the "sinners" around them as if following what extra standards they have added to God's Word and his natural law somehow makes them better than everyone else.

    the song is trying to point out (and very harshly) that these judgemental christians need to realize that they themselves are sinners that will be judged along with the rest of us standard disregarding sinners.

    this song is about (in my oppinion) how religion should not be based on what you hear in church but on what you see around and how things really are i dont think it promotes hate for religion just a better understanding at what faith really is
