Cross of Babylon (Savage Messiah)

Caught in the crossfire, Sentenced to faith Coercive deliverance, A despotic fate Shouldering burdens from one to the next No hour of penance can lay you to rest Forgo saturated establishment lies The proliferation of truth they disguise From out of the darkness of hope it is lost In belief you are trapped like the open deceiver To be heard you must plead like the weakened disciple's run On your knees you are taught to beseech you deliverer Only time that is lost as the darkness encroaches Cross of babylon - Burning skies of blackened wisdom Cross of babylon - Secrecy and mass derision Cross of babylon - Harbinger imagination Cross of babylon - Soldier of annihilation Forced euphemistic perversion of truth Engendered malignance no hope of rebuke Trapped confrontation, Insidiously Killing for peace in the land of the free Judgement abundance, Provoking consent The failures of greed not the failures of man In wounds of sorrow, Or pitiless death Beyond sight of mercy,and bold existence In deceit you are sworn like the brutal dictator To be seen you must plead to the prejudice seeker's gun On your feet you are taught to destroy your ideals Only life that is lost as the darkness approaches Cross of babylon - Burning skies of blackened wisdom Cross of babylon - Secrecy and mass derision Cross of babylon - Harbinger imagination Cross of babylon - Soldier of annihilation
