New Lyrics - Deceiver

This is a first draft of some lyrics that I wrote in church last Sunday (instead of paying attention to the message). Some words just flew out at me, and I knew I had to use them. Even though the people who spoke them didn't put any special emphasis on them they stood out to me and this is what I came up with. It will change I am sure, especially if/when Tommy gets ahold of it.


You do not do the work
You do not care to believe
Transgress against the world
Only take what you need

Proclaim to serve
Reaffirm your path
Undermine with apathy
Burn down the truth
Burn it down Burn it down
Burn it all down

You create your own view
Based on real falsehoods
Deceive your own mind
Destroy the greater good

You keep your ears closed
Don't listen to the voice
Knowledge becomes distorted
You've made your choice
