Martyrdom as performed by Gwar

 

 

Do you remember
The lessons taught in your past?
And how old were you
Before you wondered how many were lies?
They tried to teach you about the Antichrist
They tried to teach that Christ was nice
Did they say anything about the terms?
That eternal life meant food for worms

Don't die for their
DEAD RELIGION
DEAD RELIGION
DIE

Please take my soul
And please control
But would you just please go?
I think it's about time
I wipe my ass with your holy book
God is dead and the Pope's a crook
A blackened heart you claim is pure
You're a plague and we're the cure

DEAD RELIGION
DEAD RELIGION
DIE

I spit on the shit you prophesize
Your Apocalypse a pack of lies
Each generation says their time has come
Clutching on the thread of martyrdumb
Each generation says their time has come
Doomsday starts when we kill the son

DIE MARTYR DIE
And embrace your lonely martyrdumb

What were you told?
That the streets would be paved in gold?
I've got news for you, you are the road
Well, I know better, Bub
God lives in a nuclear sub
Your religion is the greatest scam
Because we're all dead and we're all damned
In the eyes of your

DEAD RELIGION
