lyrics

EMPTY SKIES:

Eyes cast towards the heavens
In search of some meager truth

Humbled before endless unfathomable heights above

Desiring answers to the answerless
Frustration leads to liars rising through the bleak abyss
Their tales will feed us

We feasted on their fictions
And rejoiced in every myth they marked

At last we had some scripture to scream back at the eternal dark

Each generation's passing led the next into an age
Where the screaming masses bludgeoned curiosities to the grave

It is so because it has always been so

Place our doubts
In the coffers of a self-indulgent man
Let him smother them in words

But the power of the brains digests these claims
And they hunger for a remedy that is man's
Scrutiny and patience lead to finding
No deity controls our lives

Atrocities have persisted
In the name of a god
Which leads to retaliation
Perpetual cyclical sacrifice

Does God wish to prevent evil, but is not able?
Then He's not omnipotent
Is He able, but not willing?
Then He is malevolent
Is He both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?

Does God wish to prevent evil, but is not able?
Then He's not omnipotent
Is He able, but not willing?
Then He is malevolent
Is He neither able, nor willing?
Then why call Him God?

Treasure your human reason
Trust what your senses reveal
If it can't be seen, or tested
It can not be real

Revel in the realization
That your existance is a fluke
Absolute purposlessness is freedom
Live well and die
