7. Harlequin (7:15)
Thousands came, a human tide to see the proud, Crown Prince of Lies
Tied by fear, your Latin cries, “Power from blue, immortal skies”
Long, hard life and all that’s left are dreams of living after death
Crowd around to be blessed. Obey at the Papal behest

Money talks and riches grown to pay for their Salvation Show
God exists? Well who can know? The blind have but one way to go
Millions starve, yet money’s spent to show the priest is Heaven sent
“Morals” reign, yet logic’s bent: Who walks with kings in cruel torment?

Disbelieve the Harlequin; his book is full of lies
Disbelieve the Harlequin; his tongue is edged with knives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’ll sign away your lives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’s all you should despise

Fear and guilt his stock in trade, telling you, you must behave
Binding words to make you slaves. Toe the line or burn in flame
Pay his way with gold and blood, listening with your eyes shut
Omnipresent God above rules by fear, not words of love

Disbelieve the Harlequin; his book is full of lies
Disbelieve the Harlequin; his tongue is edged with knives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’ll sign away your lives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’s all you should despise
