Temple Rats

Gnawing through the rafters of our innocence
Breaking loose the final false deliverance
This roof is caving in

Left to you this madness would remain unmoved
Left to you
Left to you a silence worse than resolute
Left to you
The consumed, self-righteous, church of ill repute
There was no truth
Repent what little's left of you

These words keep seeping through my skin
Your repetitions don't defend
This desperate deprivation
This castrated congregation
These thoughts won't break this revelation
Your metaphors can't verify the lie

And I won't tolerate
The degradation of reality
I just can't tolerate
The subjugation of humanity
To you

Because left to you
We'd never get through
All the problems that accrued
When things were left to you
