lyrics

I got a wake up call she said I let myself down
That everything I think about was years ago now
She says I’m cynical, no longer fun to be around
Too lost within myself to even let it go
I fear her words are misconceiving
She slams the Goddamn door while leaving

I feel stagnant and stupid
I feel normal and useless
This life is painfully lucid
I feel so plateaued and foolish

Yeah!

I’m at an empty bar, the only place I’m not alone
The waitress brings up faith and how she’s so devout now
I got my old guitar; I’m standing at a microphone
Too lost within my thoughts to even block it out
She claims I don’t understand Zion
I ask “what are you getting high on?”

I feel stagnant and stupid, (Still holding on to fading memories)
I feel normal and useless, (Just getting by while time still ticks away)
This life is painfully lucid, (Why am I wasting my time)
I feel so plateaued and foolish, (On things I left behind)

Yeah!

These past 10 years are getting cold
I try to fight these demons, I won’t be controlled
My ignorance is my concern
This lowly heart forsaken, surely I will burn

I cannot hide what I don’t know
I can’t confide just let it go

I think too much, I drink too much it’s only bringing me down
Try to find, left behind, no use in turning around
Oh God hear me now
I’m an asshole, I have no soul, I cannot find a way out
Left alone, barely known, keep circling roundabout
Father where art thou

Two thousand years and no rebirth
All that has spawned is hatred, it consumes the Earth
To kill by faith is damn absurd
All of you pious creatures soon will be interred

You cannot hide what you don’t know
You won’t confide just let it go

Some want their faith, some smoke an eighth, what happens if we’re all wrong
Meditate, liberate, we’re all a little headstrong
Can you hear me now?
Do not regress, do not oppress, don’t think that you can decree
We were wrong all along; we all deserve to be free
Dare we disavow?

She says I don’t know what this life’s about
Well, I suppose that is true
She begs believe that the lord will endow
I don’t believe he’ll come through

I said I believed before but what do we have now
A world unaccounted for, how?
So what if your God deplores, I will not make a vow
Find me at the liquor store, now

She thinks her faith justifies prosecution
Even her book says that’s wrong
She tells me I’m sick and need absolution
I’ve been alright all along

I said I believed before but what do we have now
A world unaccounted for, how?
So what if your God deplores, I will not make a vow
Find me at the liquor store, now

Save your words and fucking speak with your heart
Paraphrase a book and tear us apart
Misinterpreting stories that were written long ago
All while condemning people and grabbing a stone to throw

Bite your tongue and merely follow design
Lay to waste your foe and seek the divine
Renounce all of your free will in favor of petty woes
I will be the one laughing while you simply decompose

I have found that more and more faithful are blind
As we all see righteous leaders nonaligned
Presidents who steer the war machine and keep the wealthy drunk on gasoline
While the rest of us fall more and more behind

I have seen so many god-fearing despise
They persecute, intimidate, and then they victimize
Dave and Charlie cannot buy a cake because the store owner refused to bake
It seems the holy have failed to evangelize

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me

We’re all the same genetic people, with our own values, but we’re all equal
It’s time to end dogmatic hate, and rehabilitate, love

(I’ll give you one thing, you almost had me fooled
But who are you to say that I’m nothing? Who are you to tell me that I’m lost?
Who are you to declare my value?
I dare you to try and strike fear in this heart. I pray that you do.
I followed the path that you made for me and it led me to face death itself.
But you missed one thing. My path was never yours to make, and this life was never yours to take. I am unaffected by your inspiration and fear of heaven and hell and I wish you farewell.
We were made for more than this, and what you can be, you must be.)

All of this ignorance puts me in SVT
I feel this pain in my chest, something’s wrong with me
This fucking world’s arrhythmic, push Adenosine
Hold down the reset button ‘til the beats are clean

We’re all the same genetic people, with our own values, but we’re all equal
It’s time to end dogmatic hate, and rehabilitate, love

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.
