Holy burning hand of wrath
Piercing forever through the heart
And this flaming orbit of shame
Ravages and splits the path
Grinding binding taking away
Needles above the prey
Wreath of barbs
The injection of religion
Has a comalike effect
And bodies lay in decay
Dreaming of a greener day
Grinding binding taking away
Needles above the prey
Wreath of barbs
Open eyes reading nothing
A sky harsh blue grins black
And I bleed and bleed in this wreath of barbs
And I run and run but I don't get far

    It is written as a personal expression of the pain of experience. Unable to escape the self-inflicted pain from the author's own shame, feeling the anesthetizing effects of religion that may be designed to take away the suffering but just lets the bodies decay. A blue sky grins with a black smile whilst we dream of a better, greener day, but the bleeding - the feeling of ongoing loss - persists. But that's just one perspective, I guess.
