lyrics

Mayhem in the city,
Desolation devoured helpless lives
The storm deracinated trees,
The earth quaked, created for demise
The buildings were destroyed, big chaos,
Hopeless people with no aims
Thousands burst under debris,
And burnt to death in a sea of flames
A mass of blood, intestines,
Corpses and limbs was lying in the street
The air was filled with death and pain
And fear and the smell of carbonized meat

A group of people knelt on the ground
And raised their arms into the sky
They implored the almighty one
The lord, their god,
To protect them, not to die

"He's the saviour in distress
The lord is always by your side
He will take away your fear"
But he didn't hear

They paid for their death
And the lies they were told
Wanted their god to help, that was their fault
They served their master, didn't complain
Folded their hands and died in pain

A group of people knelt on the ground
And raised their arms into the sky
They implored the almighty one
The lord, their god,
To protect them, not to die

To god they chose to give their fate
Expecting to receive salvation and aid
Credulous but faithful they had to be
A lethal conflict in their land
Instead of running as fast as they can
They pray and want their god to rule
Religion wants to spread love and peace
The lord's almightiness shall increase
But guns are stronger than the holy help
They believe in eternal life
That their souls will rise into the sky
Where Jesus stands with open arms
To take them to his reich

Useless fantasticality
The made-up god has died eternally
Millions of bibles have been sold
But never the promises will unfold
Prophet or profit, easy to see through
Their dull faked maxims
Have never been true

Millions were killed and die each day
But he didn't hear them pray
Stupid miracles and parables
Devised for even dumber people on earth
Love and peace, the holy law
Well he didn't avoid the war
Wimps so stupid and naive
Unworldliness beyond belief
