How can this be?
Why is he the chosen one?
Saint gone astray,
With a scepter and a gun.
Learn to believe
In the mighty and the strong.
Come bleed the beast
Follow me it won't be long.

Listen,
When the prophet
Speaks to you.
Killing
In the name of God.
Passion
Twisting
Faith into
Violence.
In the name of God.

Straight is the path,
Leading to your salvation.
Slaying the weak,
Ethnic elimination.
Any day,
We'll all be
Swept away.
You'll be saved
As long as
You obey
Lies,
Tools of the devil
Inside,
Written in Holy
Disguise.
Meant to deceive and
Divide us all.

Listen,
When the prophet
Speaks to you.
Killing
In the name of God.
Passion
Twisting
Faith into
Violence.
In the name of God.

Blurring the lines
Between virtue and sin,
They can't tell
Where God ends,
And mankind begins.

They know no other
Life but this.
From the cradle
They are claimed.

Listen,
When the prophet
Speaks to you.
Killing
In the name of God.
Passion
Twisting
Faith into
Violence.
In the name of God.

Hundreds of believers,
Lured into a doomsday cult.
All would perish
In the name of God.

Self-proclaimed messiah,
Led his servants
To their death.
Eighty murdered
In the name of God.

Forty sons and daughters,
Unconsenting plural wives,
Perversions
In the name of God.

Underground religion,
Turning toward
The mainstream light,
Blind devotion
In the name of God.

Justifying violence,
Citing from the Holy Book,
Teaching hatred
In the name of God.

Listen,
When the prophet
Speaks to you.
Killing
In the name of God.
Passion
Twisting
Faith into
Violence.
In the name of God.

Religious beliefs,
Fanatic obsession,
Does following faith
Lead us to violence?

Unyielding crusade,
Divine revelation,
Does following faith
Lead us to violence?
