  • The dual substance of Christ
    The yearning so human
    Of man to attain god
    Has always been a deep

    Inscrutable mystery to me
    My principle anguish and source
    Of all my joys and sorrows

    Religion domain is all I see
    Suffocate the scum with mediocrity
    Lying and changing your fate
    Anno domini ends - misery

    From my youth onward
    Has been the incessant
    Merciless battle between
    The spirit and the flesh
    And my soul is the arena
    Where these two armies
    Have clashed and met

    Holy wars unleashing bloody raids
    The sacred earth without a face
    Consumed by murderous sinners
    Psychotic leader
    Insane-insane-insane-insane!

    Living in a dying age
    Persecute the human race
    Triumph of death in the wasteland
    Blood signs your epitaph

    Religion domain is all I see
    Suffocate the scum with mediocrity
    Lying and changing your fate
    Anno domini ends - misery Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
