Track Name: Blind Faith
The story starts far back in time
When blind faith did perceive
The birth of Ram

The twisted truth from scriptures told
A lie upon a lie that built
The cornerstone

The lies!
The lies they feed us.

A king did build this city
From bricks and stones
A kingdom that was born
For a war not fought, unconquerable he rose.

Ignorance, Hate & Violence
The contempt we breed
These are the roads
To which blind faith leads

Why do we never question
The words a preacher speaks
Why do we never question

The eyes now uncovered
And the blind did see once more

Ignorance, Hate & Violence
The contempt we breed
These are the roads
To which blind faith leads

Upon the pedestal he stands
A voice so loud and deep
Hear his words and believe the lie
You weak pathetic being

Repent not for your sins
A slave to religion you are
Blinded by the many lies
You, yourself has been lost

They divide and they rule
You’re just a pawn in the game
And when the castle comes crumbling down
Only they remain.
Track Name: Religious Genocide
Blood was spilled
Invoked religious ire
Armed, they took the streets
On a killing spree

The holy shrine - An empty space within four walls
The holy shrine - A man made god that rules us all

No God would ever warrant
No God would justify
The most heinous crime
Religious Genocide

No God would ever warrant
No religion did indite
The Slaying of the innocent
Religious Genocide

The one who wields the power
His lust, his greed that grows
Exploiting blind faith
To watch his empire grow

His minions lead the slaughter
The blinded fools don’t know
While they all die in battle
The leader’s safe at home.

Suffocate their beliefs
Ours is the one true god
Words that ring through
‘Hunt them down and kill, kill, kill them all’



The holy land was proclaimed
They conquered it by force
Tearing down the structure
A blasphemous religious horde

And so the disease spread
Religions went to war
Ignorant, pathetic mortals
Killing for their god.

No God would ever warrant
No God would justify
The most heinous crime
Religious Genocide

No God would ever warrant
No religion did indite
The Slaying of the innocent
Religious Genocide

The scars that never heal
These scars will never heal.

Death breeds, hate
Death breeds, contempt
Death breeds, malice
Death breeds, Revenge I seek, I will avenge

Don’t believe the empty space
Don’t believe the lies they’ve spoke
Don’t believe the preachers words
Don’t forsake yourself to a counterfeit god
Track Name: Ayodhya Burns
They came, they conquered
A myth beneath the sand
A holy structure built
Over beliefs it stands

One day they razed, set ablaze
The walls did not withstand
A broken faith above
A myth beneath the sand
A nation was plagued
A riot ravaged the land
While the pyres burned
No resolution at hand

Loss of life and livelihood
Damage to public property
Not one who is accountable
For the suffering and misery

Ayodhya Burns

Divided by faith, Torn by violence
Nothing holy, nothing sacred
Ayodhya Desecrated

Holy wars once waged
Return to haunt the grave
Empty promises, betrayed
Religious honour at stake

The cries, the screams
Of women and children slain
No mercy. No compassion
Redemption for the years of pain.

Ayodhya Burns

Divided by faith, Torn by violence
Nothing holy, nothing sacred
Ayodhya Desecrated

And it burns.

And it has been settled
Or so that is what they say
Still dividing by religion
And to which god we pray

At the end of it all
There is no god
And that is the only true belief.
Forsake the plastic demon
And see what the book really means.
No religion ever did preach
The roads they all lead to the same
We must be divided no more and
Put religion into the grave.
