lyrics

Corruptive contagion, infectious persuasion. A book of lies and a crucifix to manifest the fear bred conclusions derived from delusions of heavens and hells - of gods and men. Forgive me father, for I have sinned and crumbled beneath the weight of the cross. These rusty nails have been driven into the palms of those who've knelt in fear. This crown of thorns rests upon the heads and pierces the flesh of all, for we were born into and have committed original sin. Pray in tongues to cleanse your soul of the filth and failures of a dying world. Corruptive contagion, infectious persuasion. A book of lies and a crucifix to manifest the fear bred conclusions derived from delusions of heavens and hells - of calloused gods and fallen men. Take this body, take this blood. Self-serving, self-righteous sacrifice absolved through tradition, a baptism in shame and consequence. A doctrine, a gospel with visions of horrors and hell to come. A search for truth in the emptiness, illumination through the abyss. This lantern, a beacon of hope and faith extinguished by righteousness of the axiom. Forgive me father for I have sinned and crumbled beneath the weight of the cross. Forgive me father for I have sinned and will carry these sins through the gates of hell.
