I know more Atheists that pray
Than it is worth the time counting
Hiding in the haze of mystery
Their numbers quickly growing
Willing to speak a firm amen
After the fervent prayer of a saint
Because they want the blessings
Without knowing the God that gave
Falsified religious belief
Strong enough to convince themselves
But never practicing what they preach
Still expecting to avoid the flames of hell
Like they fear punishment
More than they believe in it
While they adore their own ideal of heaven
They are unwilling to put the effort in
To changing the world in which we live.
Wolves in sheep’s clothing
Are more common than you’d think.

I can no longer have any satisfaction
In anything that is but a fraction
Of the original it came from
Truth, beauty, love, dreams, religion
The world won’t be honest enough
It keeps trying to feed me stuff
Just to fill this empty hole
A void deep and wide in my soul
The things that can wholly satisfy me
Are always the hardest to seek
They will demand myself as sacrifice
To obtain that which carries great price
And anything worth less is insignificant
Even if it is vain pursuit, it’s magnificent
Fain! Prepared for the cost!
My life I already consider a loss
I don’t care about a lasting mark
Or to be praised in death for my life-art
All or nothing, give it all or nothing you take
How can I remain on the fence before fate?
Living a lie just doesn’t sound like a good deal
If I can catch but a glimpse of something real
That would sum up my life pretty well.
