Lyrics[edit]

    fornicators in wooden silence
    throw grubstakes on the offering
    plate
    supplication congregation
    count the creases in your
    face
    prophet preaches hypocrisy
    disemboweling heresy
    falsities falsities
    falsified factualities
    the sky was purple and my eyes
    were red
    i fell from the firmament
    upon my head
    was it something something
    something I said?
    one day people gonna make me
    dead
    caught in this dream
    can't hear me scream
    another variation on my theme
    i'm omnipotent fiend
    meat for a queen
    my hair runs black and
    my eyes grow green
    you don't need your worthless
    mortal body
    belief is just a
    pitiful noose
    your god is cerebral
    masturbation
    and satan is your sorry
    excuse

Trivia[edit]
