about

A friend once revealed to me that she was a young-earth creationist. That she was home schooled and that the bible is literally real. This angered me on so many levels. I wasn't angry at her; I was angry at her parents for denying her the opportunity to see the truth about our world. Religious indoctrination is child abuse.

A while after writing this song, that same friend contacted me to say that she had broken free from the cult and was left with the inability to trust anyone. Just one example of the lasting effects of this monstrous practice.

lyrics

Force-fed lies,
Brainwashed children,
Mobilising silent armies.
Fill the void
With slick deception;
Shut their minds and damn their souls.

Claim your holy book is nothing but the truth,
You're slowly sewing shut their eyes
And if they question you, you'll punish them for Peeling
Back the layers of your lies

Indoctrinate them so they've never question you
And you can carry on controlling generations
Building up your armies, gathering your strength
And lying to the fucking world.

They've built temples founded on broken faith
Rise, fight them, blinded by years of hate
Stand, reclaim what was taken from you
Eyes open, all they said was untrue
Cut through their lies, open your eyes find the truth
Smash temples, cast them down with the proof

Moulded firm,
Grown up ignorant,
Youth in turn replace the generals.
Circles closed,
Torches passed on;
100,000 wasted lives.

Close your mind for so long lies become the truth
Why does nobody see your proof?
Scientists are all wrong! Why would preachers lie
About the book that holds the truth?

Wake up, shut your book of fucking lies
And find the answers to the questions for so long denied
There's no conspiracy, there's no satanic plan,
So smash the circle, break out now!


They've built temples founded on broken faith
Rise, fight them, blinded by years of hate
Stand, reclaim what was taken from you
Eyes open, all they said was untrue
Cut through their lies, open your eyes find the truth
Smash temples, cast them down with the proof
