Do you see this as a mystery?
Did you think that one moment could erase our history?
There was no singular moment
No “ah-ha!” projected into that summer air
But there were occasions,
have no doubts,
that showed He wasn’t there
But it wasn’t in those padded pews that showed us where
you had gone astray.
Hell, we followed you right along into the madness
To the moment of our darkest sadness,
when we saw you for who you are.
You tried to yell louder than those who were hurting
You beat them down when they tried to stand
And anyone not serving you,
you don’t even see as a common man
Equality has no room in your vocabulary
Only You versus the world
And if somebody gets hurt in the process,
it was probably from a rock that you hurled
So stand away.
Go back to your cave of non-critical romance
And snarl at the world with your illogical stance
But keep me the fuck out of it
For me, there’s no more pretending
You’re an evil in the world, and you’re not worth defending
