And I watched through bitter eyes
As the blood filled in the cracks, black
A burning effigy
Told me I should kneel 'cause

I'm worshipping
With terror, a disease
Bum the sacred oil

They told us there'd never come a day
They told us that we need not worry
So we fucked around, thought this shit would change
And turned our eyes away

I am the power siege
And the rush you will feel, thrill
Exploding out of me
Through clenched teeth I will scream out

We're suffering
With malice you deceive
Puke sold as salvation

They told us there'd never come a day
They told us that we need not worry
So we fucked around, thought this shit would change
And turned our eyes away

And I watched it slip away
And you watched it slip away
And we watched it slip away
'Cause no one took a stand
