lyrics

They came in Sunday morning/ They came in without warning
They burned it to the ground/ and they bound/ All they found
They came in bearing scripture/ With diagrams and pictures
And they forced us to our knees/ Amid pleas/ and disease
Their stories were outrageous/ Their diseases were contagious
But they swore it was the truth/ Sunk their tooth/ In our youth
Hey won't you pick us up?/ Won't you lead us out? Of this forsaken/ Wilderness
Won't you show us light?/ Won't you show us love? We could believe/ Something like this
Now the only truth before us/ Is the rabble of the chorus
And the clattering of tongues/ Songs in lungs/ Left unsung
And there's nothing in this forest/ But dilettantes and tourists
And the clutter left behind/ We're resigned/ And we're blind
Hey won't you pick us up?/ Won't you lead us out? Of this forsaken/ Wilderness
Won't you show us light?/ Won't you show us love? We could believe/ Something like this
Deus Ex Machina
Now the problem with religion/ Is that people without vision
Fall victim to their greed/ And deceive/ Those they lead
So to all the desperate searchers/ In the temples, the mosques and the churches
I just pray that you find hope/ Just to cope/
Don't shoot dope.
Hey won't you pick them up?/ Won't you lead them out? Of this forsaken/ Wilderness
Won't you show them light?/ Won't you show them love? They could believe/ Something like this
Hey won't you pick me up?/ Won't you lead me out? Of this forsaken/ Wilderness
Won't you show me light?/ Won't you show me love? I could believe/ Something like this
Deus Ex Machina
