Disturbed – Deify lyrics

All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
I was too blinded to see
How much you've stolen from me

You want to know why I feel so horrified?
I let my innocence die
You want to know why I can't be pacified?
You made me bury something
I won't be sleeping tonight

I only wanted a blessing made
Now I've been labeled a renegade
It seems so clear now what I must do
You're no immortal
I won't let them
Deify you
They view, you as the new messiah
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented man

You want to know why it seems the passion has died?
We've all been living this lie
You want to know why my will has been fortified?
You've made me hunger again
Good luck sleeping tonight

I only wanted a blessing made
Now I've been labeled a renegade
It seems so clear now what I must do
You're no immortal
I won't let them
Deify you
They view you as the new messiah
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented man

All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
I was too blinded to see
How much you've stolen from me
I was too blinded to see
All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
I was too blinded to see
How much you've stolen from me

Deify you
They view you as the new messiah
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented man

Deify you
Leave you, you as the new messiah
All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented myth (or man)
I was too blinded to see
How much you've stolen from me

    The song's not specifically about george bush, it's about people like him. It's meant to be cryptic and ambiguous. It's about attributing god-like qualities to politicians and public figures. That's why in the beginning you hear that sample from bush's 9/11 speech. It's the perfect example of someone who was attributed god-like power, and deified. Whether it's bush, the pope, ted turner, or anybody else like that, it just warns of the danger of that sort of behavior, treating a human being like a god. "disturbedpedia"

    This song has a personal meaning to me. No-one is perfect, never allow someone to achieve godlike status in my mind. Keep everyone human, and never allow myself or anyone else to deceive myself.
    There are no gods, and if there were, they wouldn't be human.
    If someone seems perfect to me, then guess what, they are abnormal, crazy, insane. They kind of lose that perfect label in my mind that way. Don't ya think?
