Desciples of a Shiny New God

See them worship,
See them hope,
See them pray

They pray not to a god we know,
At least not one known for salvation
But to a god of empty promises
A God who doesn't know your name

See them dream,
See them change,
See them yearn for acceptance

Idolizing those they see
Doing what they need
In order to be
One with their god

One with those they worship,
One with those who worship,
One with those who conform

Yearning for perfection,
And painting themselves
A deeper shade of
The same

Watch them circle,
Watch them chant,
Watch them lose theirselves
