Innocent Sacrifice

Shall I be your innocent sacrifice
Amidst this illusion of paradise

Will you all purge me on your altar of lust
Shattering the dreams and breaking the trust

Do you all enjoy breaking a person's essence
Making one doubt their existence and presence

Why is it that many spout words of love
When everyone does question God up above

How is it that many claim to have faith... yet they don't really believe
Doubters...many of you...one day God's grace you may not receive

For to have faith all must believe in all that is real and much that can't be
That shall be how we all receive God's grace....everyone including me

All must live according to God's laws...never wavering from His Path
Or else we all will perish and ultimately feel HIS ALMIGHTY WRATH
