Hands on the Bible
Scared like a child
God holds you liable
For what you've done

Homicidal
Stared down your idols
A pretty baby
Never born

You can't believe it
You didn't mean it
But they saw you do it
And they know your name

Rats in the attic
Toys in the cellar
She's an addict
He wants to learn

Hands on the bible
Egomaniacal
As you screw yourself into oblivion
Worn and faded
Stoned and jaded
You'll have to face it
On your own
Smashed on the pavement
Stunned in amazement
Everything you make comes crawling back to you

You can't believe it
You didn't mean it
But they saw you do it
And they know your name

So hands on the bible
Scared like a child
God holds you liable
For what you've done

Homicidal
Stared down your idols
A pretty baby never to be born

You can't pretend that you don't know the reasons
For the REPENT at your side
Hands on the bible
Hands on the bible
Hands on the bible
Hands on the bible

    Its about abortion. "a pretty baby never born" how the person was judged for what they did, and it seems tried in court. "hands on the bible" is talking about the oath taken before a court proceeding marked by swearing to tell the truth while placing your hand on the bible.

    It's about a hedonist who lost his temper and killed someone. Disgusted by his actions, he turns to the Christian God as he sinks into insanity
