The God Album Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Everything You Believe Is a Lie (6:08)
Christ, a myth or man?
Now no longer matters
Message is so distorted by the words of men

The actual son of god?
A flesh embodiment
For all eternity, such arrogance overlooked

Everything you believe is a lie
Everything you believe is a lie

History has a victim
An act well rehearsed
Self-pity reigns in the Kingdom of Israel

Central theme
Of a chosen race
Began the divide, tracing back to Abraham

Vision of heaven
A quaint concept to me
Alive only in dreams

Present day enemy
Just one more crusade
No innocence in a war on progress waged

Never showed a sign
of the slightest sympathy
Stood in the way with a tradition of ignorance

Everything you believe is a lie
Everything you believe is a lie
Everything you believe is a lie
Because all of them cannot be right

These are only three examples
Worthy of a blunt exposure
The contempt that they show for each other
Eventually will
turn inward.
2. Monomythic (3:53)
Theme, recurring epoch
Ages now long gone
Seek and you will find the link you looked for all along
Follow reasoned path
Most objective view
Question what you ask before you ask it


Monomythic
Timeless gimmick
Common story
That defines a hero
Monomythic
With a thousand faces
Basic pattern
For the trials he must undergo


Adventure, refusal, supernatural
One mission as initiation, temptation
From death to rebirth, now exalted
Atone in triumph, apotheosis


This is not a message of blasphemy
This is some guidance for how it has to be


All mythology in Heaven
Does not describe the truth
The wonder I have seen in colours of existence
Fraudulent construct
It seems the game is up
You know you’re not a saviour you are


Monomythic
Timeless gimmick
Common story
That defines a hero
Monomythic
With a thousand faces
Basic pattern
For the trials he must undergo


“Because I have called, and ye refused ... I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. ... For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.”
Proverbs 1:24-27 and 32
3. Reprieve (1:23)
4. The Enemy of My Enemy (3:05)
Evil of establishment
Clearly it is evident

You would think we would be closer to
An era of enlightenment
Choked by misguidance
Dominance does not mean truth
Know the only difference
Cult to religious
Is the count of worshipers
Superstition become fact
Repetition of a pact
By design, a twisted view is born

Next messiah waits for his turn
The enemy of my enemy is still my enemy

Self-important usurper
Aspire to superhuman power
To take ideals not yours
From time immemorial
“Do what thou wilt” did not work
Cannot act in absolutes
Eternally deceive yourself
Weak, not strong, this law deserts
Rituals achieve nothing
It’s a private nemesis
Philosophy of hatred cursed
Hail Satan? You’re the biggest fool

There is no answer in someone else’s words
Do not let the rhetoric ever sway your choice
Let freedom reign supreme above all else
And never trust the motives of any priest
5. Origin (5:15)
Down to the simplest form
There is will to remain
Immortality in the genes you host
Can a miracle be seen?
In absolute destiny
The truth is so much more than this manmade dream

Journey of a seed
On winds of a global road
Shows the path for all in a natural world
Let the strongest live
As the weak may die
Each into its place, the answer “why”

Light will be thrown on the origin of man
Chain of being is now redefined

If landscapes can be transfigured by slow change, so surely,
could flesh modify in the same way

Archive of the rocks is a series of snapshots
Only taken at long intervals
With a badly focussed camera, the analogy goes
In good time disturbs all graves
No vestige of beginning, no prospect of an end
Think of all the species unknown
To taste oblivion is to master nemesis
The clock of Long Now, it strikes the hour

The idea that the Universe has been preserved since Creation
is now dead and cannot reverse

When perfectly viewed
Through an objective lens
The legacy of resistance falls away

Light will be thrown on the origin of man
Chain of being is now redefined
There is grandeur in this view of life
And endless forms, most beautiful
6. False Miracle (1:31)
Face on the moon made from shadows in gloom
Is a wrong revelation, a logic vacuum
Invisible shape that is all in the mind
These marvels are like clouds in the sky


Stigmata is a fraud
A false miracle never performed


Unverified claims parading as truth
A zeitgeist is spawned when your fear is let loose
An odour of sanctity, stories abound
No question there is work to be done
7. God (4:52)
Every - single - self serving incarnation
Every - passion - that it tried to block
Betray - reason - the stuff of legend
Every page of every holy book
Is a living, breathing lie


God has abandoned you
When you needed it most
The fundamental error
Faith is a path to nowhere


Petty - jealous – figure from the Old Testament
Anger - for prayers - never answered
What the - truth is - you will never know
No evidence, coincidental chance
Find divine in the widest gaps


God is the human mind
And it tricks us sometimes
If you must believe in something
Why don’t you make it yourself?
8. Let It Go (4:07)
I realise it is hard to discard
All that you knew from birth
Sacred message shown
Conditioned to feed a divine ego
It will seem like the loss of a safety net, a great unknown

Just let it go

Plea for reason, no compromise for an end to intolerance, this should be the dream of ages

Is it losing faith or running free?
Dont be afraid to fall
In this youre not alone
Step forward from a deluded past
No more a world of hate, those walls are coming down

Just let it go
9. (Hymn Of) Fire (8:20)
Cracks have formed in the rationale
Common sense over ancient texts
A moral code is human
Not born from the spiritual world
Life and death unavoidable
As sure as Earth circles the Sun
Learn before you play the judge
Sentenced heretic, condemned
To fire


Monuments to atrocity, found in all religions
Stay preserved or swept away by fire
(swept away) by fire


Terrified of the emptiness
Face the fact we might be alone
For all sins you compromise
When no other logic will hold
The more we know the less to luck
See the wall of reason is strong
There can be peace in a mortal coil
Long before the answer is told


Frost forms, patterns
New birth from nothing
Shows that there is hope still to be found


Those who would dare to ask
“There must be something more?”
Look around to see all secrets revealed
No longer possible for just one man
To possess all knowledge
Even in a thousand lifetimes


To burn words
Is to snuff thought
To burn “The Word”
Is to find freedom


An afternoon in a garden, like any other
Alone with a cult of one, the Empire of self
How many shades of light cloak this day?
Never a second chance to live this moment.
