Empires Of Sand

you raise your fists like a martyr
but the blood won't wash off your hands
you wield your cross like a weapon
breaking backs of the already damned.

(while your city lies in ruins)

who is this god that you've created
you speak in his name but have never seen his face
i will no longer stay silent in the shadows
while you preach a doctrine built on hate

i've seen you on your knees
in your monuments to built to excess
with your holy books in hand
praying for the strength to kill
all you don't understand

who made you judge and jury
who gave you the power of life or death
you've run the streets red with blood
and stained these whitewashed walls with innocence

i will not serve your god of hate

tear down these walls
we'll burn this city to the ground
we'll burn this city down
