  • Christ on a cross
    Such a symbol of loss
    Since what seems like the dawn of time
    It's just an engine of grief
    Yeah, a bloody belief
    One that has no reason or rhyme
    You're cruci-fucked
    And you're out of luck
    If you put your faith in the flock
    Your only sin
    Is when you piss in the wind
    They've never had any key to the lock

    [Chorus]
    I believe in nothing
    Least of all in the word of shit
    So hide in your shroud of urine
    Because I can't take the smell of it

    God isn't great
    Just an icon of hate
    Intolerance and despise
    Believe in me
    And I will set you free
    I never heard a bigger pack of lies
    It's ludicrous
    That anyone of us
    Would want to be lead by the blind
    It's all in vain
    It'll be your bane
    If you're looking for the divine

    [Chorus]

    Forgive and forget
    Such an empty threat
    Religion at the end of the blade
    The insanity
    Of Christianity
    Is just a fucking masquerade
    You're cruci-fucked
    And you're out of luck
    If you put your faith in the flock
    Your only sin
    Is when you piss in the wind
    They've never had any key to the lock
