    "False Witness" (lyrics)

    Post by Pr0nogo on Sat Jun 02, 2012 10:44 pm

    Begins and ends with a quote. The last quote isn't from a famous person, but rather would sound like a priest preaching. The first quote would not be spoken, but would be in the lyric book at the top.

    Lyrics are not for those weak of mind.

    "False Witness"

    "I like you, Christ. I do not like your Christians.
    Your Christians are very unlike you, Christ."

    -Gandhi

    Since the time you came to life,
    You have wrought nothing but strife.
    Hell on Earth hath born your kin,
    Proselytising religion.
    You can't think to save your life,
    You can't extinguish the light.
    Beat your Bible, beat your wife,
    Your faith is soulless in its might!

    How can you | claim to save
    What you propel | to the grave?
    Preach the gospels, | preach to God
    Sacrifice your | fucking son!
    Why?

    Responsible for degrading
    The present-day society,
    I hold no respect for you.
    "Do anything God tells you to!"
    For everything that you have sought,
    Everybody you have shot,
    Every country you have wronged,
    Your Bible sits and fucking rots!

    Take nothing in this world for free,
    Bestow nothing upon belief.
    Put no stock in your own scheme
    When your evil goal is reached!
    Foist your lies upon my mind,
    Ensuring that I fear to die!
    Every time I see you now,
    I know you're lost in faith unfound!

    How can you | lie to me?
    You mispreach what | you believe.
    Hide behind your | infidels,
    Fuck society, | this is Hell!
    Die!

    "Remember the third commandment,
    thou shall not bear false witness."

    Quite the lyrics. Interesting commentary on the darker points that religion can have, that lead to events such as the Crusades, or any other extreme religious war or battle of some sort or another.

    That said, maybe give a bit more direct of a warning that you use colourful language and discuss something in a (fairly vast) dark note? This could easily come across as offensive, so it would be best to give some sort of warning, and maybe (mayyybeee) put it into spoilers.

    Plus, probably good to note that the ninth commandment is the one on false witness. xD; The third is on not using God's name in vain.

    That depends on what version of the Bible you're talking about, as the third commandment is not to bear false witness in several iterations.

    I am of the firm belief that being religious is the same as being weak-minded, so my warning is fair enough.

    I see. I've yet to see an iteration in which it's the third commandment, but I haven't ever really gone out of my way to study the Bible, so I'll take your word for it.

    As for your warning, in relation to your stance... Well, I can't deny that it is a warning, so all right.

    That was rather interesting. It's also a bit ironic that an unbeliever such as yourself would know the Bible so well. xD

    I read it so I can actually have intelligent debates with Christians. I often find that I know a lot more about it than most Christians, too, which is pretty sad.

    Oh. To elaborate something that I liked about the lyrics is that they flowed so very nicely. I enjoyed listening to them in my mind, nothing seemed awkward or out of place.

    Thanks for the praise, mate. I've been feeling kind of song-y lately, so you might get more lyrics in a short while.
