walk away

turn and walk away from lifes indecisions 
why pay the cost for oppressed dogmatic religion? 

why do we give in without question without resistance?
why should we live a shitzophrenic existence?

why do we induce guilt and fear into our own hearts and minds?
why do we attack and destroy the flesh of our kind?

why do we live in a world full of hate, greed and decpetion?
why are we so eager to follow popular conception?

why do we worship the images that are bestowed?
why do we feel like something has to be owed?

why is our god full of jealousy and wrath?
yet demands that we walk a very narrow path?

im sick and tired of the lies that are told!!!!
an authortarian belief system that loves to control.

they bond the spirit with the chains of oppression 
while the few know the truth while the others keep guessing 

knowledge is power but many misuse it  to their advantage 
yet the stench of preachers and pastors run repugnant and rancid 

if death is a gift a release from the flesh 
then let us put these preachers and pastors to the test
