Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Our father thy will be done.
Verse 2
I have denied this life its worth
I will not be the victim.
Sickness to you my master
Here's to getting worse
Hope it kills you faster.
Verse 3
Show me how it hurts to rot from the inside out.
This vigil burns until the day our fires overtake you.
Our father we forsake you.
Verse 4
Blessed be his name
Nothing now the same.
Verse 5
Ask me why I hate
Why I've prayed to see the nation that I loved disintegrate
And gladly give my life
That revolution regenerates.
Verse 6
In honor of the strife of those who've died
In generations before your blood stained glory
I reject you
I deny you
I defy you to continue.
Verse 7
I defy you to continue.
Verse 8
In honor of the strife of those who've died
In generations before your blood stained glory
I reject you
I deny you
I defy you to continue.
Verse 9
Smite the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered
