lyrics

Fill up all the vacant holes
With the father, son and holy ghost
You'll never see them hiding behind the pope
You gotta believe him, he's the only one who knows
Oh, he knows

Preacher, he can't turn a cheek
The reaper, he's laughing through your teeth
Eye for an eye, well he don't practice what he preach
Blind lead the blind, where the one eyed man is king
He's counting sheep

Don't waste your parables
On heaven or on hell
Don't wait for miracles
To save you from yourself

Age old parables
Hide behind your fear
Beautiful fairytales
Falling on deaf ears

People… living for one another
Why can't you see us? Why can't it be enough?
Think your father's deciphering prayer through the guff?
You can't hold water with all your weight on that crutch
How's it holding up?

Don't waste your parables
On heaven or on hell
Don't wait for miracles
To save you from yourself

Age old parables
Hide behind your fear
Beautiful fairytales
Falling on deaf ears

Darkness... lies among the lies among you
Neither was it virtue nor vice that hung him
Take a good sentiment, fuck it up, and rub it in
Don't waste away, for no one lives and no one dies for sin

There is no sin.

Only marionettes
Dancing in the night
Chasing their shadows
Somehow they find the light

Virgin marionettes...
