lyrics

Lies and spite command the world
Suffocate its consciousness,
Truth is poisoned, dead is law,
Honor killed – obscene extolled!

Blindly shut are gates of faith -
Kindness, love can’t penetrate.
And the wisdom of our days
Teaches theft, deceit, and hate.

Friend is traitor to a friend,
Spouse to spouse a common liar,
Peddles brother in his brother
Lewdness reigns in shameless pyre

“Come, you dear, to my trail,
I will surely make you fail”
-- smirks the bigot in conceit,
Knife preparing for defeat!

Such are happy days we live…
Respite, order lost, forsaken
And our God’s beloved son
Once more crucified – again!
