Bow Down to Nothingman
Beyond the likes of us
Only because you can't comprehend

All knowing
To those who don't know
Only because you shut your mind

All powerful
To those weak and frail
Only because of your weakened mind

Our creator
Of all the inexplicable
Only because you have no explanation

Some say they can feel
Some say they can hear
Others just preach to preach
For his presence is near

I say prove it to me
You say it's mysterious ways
I say believe what you will
This is more than a phase

All loving
Unconditionally with grace
Only if love fortuitously shines on you

Our rights
From his love and strife
Only if your leader approves of them

His return
Imminent to save us
Only if you conformed to the status quo

Our questions
Acceptable and needed
Only if they contain platitudinous runaround

You tell me I'm a sinner
You tell me I'm the infidel
But "he died for my sins"
And the love sends me to Hell?

I'm telling you I'm free
I think on a step higher
Nothing you could tell me
Will save me from imminent "fire"

So call me closed-minded
I don't see you opening yours
I respect where you're coming from
But I need no open church doors

So preach to me all day
Just to shut your ears to me
I don't know where I'm going
But in the end, we'll see.
