Flute by Danny Jacob

lyrics

Shackled by greed
Herded like cattle, subhuman filth
Regarded as a means to feed corruption
Branded by the Mark of Cain
A sign from God to reveal the fallen
A creation inferior

Lashed and flayed
Whipped and slain
Hearts of stone swallow living flesh
The Word to justify
Abominable acts
Their purported light makes clear
The depths of darkness

Centuries of abhorrence
Mitigated but slightly
The physical scourge
Gives way to mental torment
The icon of bondage resurfaces
With a different face

All of humanity now enslaved
By the ones who sit on mountains of gold
Peering below on the valley of peasants
The helpless, the powerless
Hearts corrupted and blinded by the illusion
That this life is measured by wealth and the material

In their eyes, we all bear the mark
Signifying our status
As fodder to be trampled upon
Goaded, prodded, processed

Fed into a cycle of servitude
Trapped beneath an impossible burden
A vain effort to satiate the gluttonous abyss
Of the ones who lust for power

The ultimate charade
The charlatans propagate
Faith in freedom
Amounting to unending deceit

A million miles from truth
The road forms a divide
A schism among us
Brother against brother
While they laugh down at us all
