"A Measure of Insecurity"

God is a measure of our own insecurity
God is used as an incentive for us to kill
To protect governments own security
Security of their wealth and power and legalised crime
The myth of god keeps us all in line

To beg for forgiveness from something unreal, not there
God is a con, god cannot care
War’s alright cos god justifies it
But does god say this, does god exist?

Or is god a lie used in governments p*ss?
The voice of god is really the sound of government
Masses have and will die for this great myth
...Yet we’ll still take the brunt

God is a measure of our own insecurity
We want life after death
We are so afraid that we may be ‘alone’
And that the responsibility of past, present and future
Lies with us alone

Well, it does. And accept it we must
We must let our minds be free
And decide what is right or wrong individually
You see, this means realising our moulded stupidity

Religion plays a big part in the mind f**king process
We are all subjected to from an early age. Is it not
Convenient that the Christian morality suits so marriage
Like the requirements of the state? These ethics are
Forced upon us at school. We are given no time to
Question. And by the time we reach a stage where we are
Quite capable of knowing perfectly well what we want, we
Already firmly believe we want what we are told. This
Indoctrination thus leaves us in later life with lessened
Self belief and self determination. Surely it is time
Enough for us all to question our own thoughts and
Actions and decide for ourselves what we think is right
Or wrong?... Individually
