Sleeping Pill

Decked in purple and scarlet
the Catholic church
is a harlot
for all the people they've hurt
like Sister Charlotte
and for turning from God to their idols
bowing before things made of stone
where is the heart when the heart grows cold?
They've turned their backs on God
followed their own traditions
pretend to be real Christians
bow before the 'Queen of Heaven'
Isis, Horus, Seb, how many false gods can you get?
Semiramis makes you bow before the crucifix
worship the sunburst for baby Tammuz
Really, do you really think they can take God out of Heaven?
The sacrifice was finished on the cross
why are you shaming God?
The dirty popes throughout the ages
have been worse then the Jesuits
(who kill who won't submit
or ruin their reputations)
the tree is known by its fruit
so many people have been duped
every man could be a liar but God is still true.
Purgatory is really Hell
seriously, can't you tell?
God paid the price for sins
not our own suffering
Can't we just follow Him?
You know you can fall from grace
and money doesn't pay
and Jesus doesn't just 'love you anyway'
ever heard of 'perfect hatred? '
If you deny the Holy Ghost,
your ass is grass, your rump is roast
you might get a second chance,
you might be toast.
But the Catholic church
is the biggest fraud
because people really believe
they're serving God
and 'once saved, always saved'
is their sleeping pill
but you can fall from grace
into the pit of Hell
and there is no way out
once your soul goes down.

When your name is blotted out
you might get a second chance
you might be toast
because He can write you in again
if you go back to serving Him
(but it doesn't mean He has to)
Oh, you know Jesus loves you,
but there's just so much He will stand
and the Catholic church has passed that.
'Come out of her, my people...'
He warns those caught up
'Come out of her, my people...'
Why can't you just trust God?
