Brian Head Welch – Die Religion Die lyrics

I'm sick of all your rules
They're so man made
You treat them all like fools
You put My name to shame
I'm everything you're not
I give them love
My ways you have forgot
You put yourselves above

I'll testify
It's time to see religion die
The truth can't lie
It's time to see religion die
Who cares?
Who's right?
It's time to see religion die
I'll crush the fight
It's time to see religion die

My church is not inside
You're building walls
On Sundays you all hide
While the world just falls
Now go into the world
And destroy hell
You have authority
Use it for the kill

I'll testify
It's time to see religion die
The truth can't lie
It's time to see religion die
Who cares?
Who's right?
It's time to see religion die
I'll crush the fight
It's time to see religion die

Children come away with Me
I want you all to be Mine
I am
Taking back what's mine, and
You've killed too much time with
Pointing all your fingers at your kids that's why they're lost
Try to look deep in
Their eyes
You will see suicide
Blame it on yourself cuz no one else will pay your price
Your price

Die just
Die religion
Die just die
Die just
Die religion
Die just die
Die
Die
Die
Die
Die
Die
Die
Die religion die
Die
Die
Die

Do not be afraid
Religion is man made
Everything is ok
The rules have just been changed

    In response to twighlighttime, I really do think you are misidentifying the meaning and targets of these lyrics. For example, if christians are going to congregate for worship & bible study the most practical way is to have a building for those activities, so if you are visiting the church only you're under no obligation to donate but if you really want to be a part of it then why would you not carry your share of the responsibilities? Imagine if you go to a gym then you are forced to pay a membership fee but if you go to church they don't even make you pay. It's based on the honor system! Proverbs 18: 5 says, "to respect the person of the wicked and be partial to him, so as to deprive the [consistently] righteous of justice, is not good. " in other words, if two guys are standing there and one is an unrepentant thief & murderer and the other guy got a ticket for jaywalking, don't berate the jaywalker because he isn't perfect while idolizing the criminal. In the case of these lyrics, however, there is a difference between evaluating a person's informed behavior and criticizing incorrect beliefs and habits. The church today suffers an unfortunately great deal with groupthink which is basing continual refinements of interpretations of scripture not on corroborating that scripture with the evidence of god's creation, but rather on interpretations given to them by ancestors who were usually basing their interpretations on limited physical information about creation. It has become a pattern for many denominations of worshipping each other by concerning themselves with what other christians think rather than worshipping god by submitting with a sense of soberiety/humility to the reconciliation of biblical interpretation with creation.

    I thinnk it like god is speaking. When it was just him, adam, and eve he was the only god. It was just him and about him. Then hunndrens and hundrens of years later people started workshipping other gods. And now god is saying. Stop workshipping these other people. Look at me. I made you. I forgave you! Forget these other religions. And god is mad at us for all the religions we made.

    This song is talking about being fed up with all the hypocrasies in the churches. That's why people go with out tking it to heart. The priest says to drink in moderation, but what does he do a funeral? Get drunk as a part of the cermony. They say give from your heart, yet they pass a collection plate and make you pay the church? And whose getting the money? The preist. It doesn't go to making the church look better, it goes to making the preist richer. I know some one who asked out right 'why are you lying to your sheep? ' That's what he asked this preist. The answer? 'Because I get paid to tell them what they want to hear. ' Think on that for a while.
