Faith In Futility - Poem by Dan Reynolds

Another sacred cow has just gone mad
Another failed fanatic waits in line
Another mother guards the tears she had
Another river bleeds in triple time

So long as the naïve are taught by fear
Traditions which turn fiction into fact
How long before humanity appears
To show, God and the Devil have a pact

A pact that only splits us, and divides
Gives cause to kill, for glory be to….what?
If dogmas sway, like fashions on man's tides
While each believe, they're something they are not.

Perhaps the gods of war will one day tire
When every bullet's programmed to backfire?
