Heretics And Killers

Songfacts®:

  • Kezia is a concept album, and at this point in the story it sounds like the priest is questioning his faith. It says how he preaches a dead and buried gospel, and at the end it sounds like he leaves his religion. >>

  • Varrick from Plano, TxMr. Chase from Ottawa Canada is a mislead imbecile. If he would listen to the words more the music, then he would know that the song explains that a priest regardless of how many years of service he gives to the lord can still fall. The song basically says that whether your a preacher, minister, or a priest; you are no different from the regular sinner. In the lyrics it reads "my faith is in ruins, but my duty still runs strong." meaning the "priest may question his faith or God's Direct Orders but still does what he is told to do regardless.
  • Chase from Ottawa, CanadaThis song is the second song by the prison priest in the album. In the first song he was finding out how god died. In this song he is realizing what a waste his life was. He's been worshiping god his whole life and now he's dead, god is not supposed to be able to die. Everything in his beliefs was a lie.
    Bible = Textbook of a crying lying dying history.
