lyrics

Hitchslap

Defending your pre-conceived notions all along
Without accepting that you might be wrong

Assuming you’ve been right from the moment you were born
But you’ve been weaving your own crown of thorns

Believing, isn’t knowing that death is a new dawn
We’re one with everything, there’s no wonderland

The party will go on without you when you’re gone
I know it’s hard to take but you’ll understand, you’ll understand…

Your self-interested interpretation
Of scriptures won’t change my mind

When you are placing faith over reason
And claim that we were designed

For goodness’ sake all you deserve is a Hitchslap

The object of your worship
Is a scapegoat
To cleanse you of your sins
Is that why you cast them all unto him?

Repentance is a guilt trip
And you’re living in false hope
As the end of his reign begins

Why would you trust the nonsense filling the gap?

When all you need is a Hitchslap.

Believing, isn’t knowing that death is a new dawn

We’re one with everything, there’s no wonderland

The party will go on without you when you’re gone
I know it’s hard to take but you’ll understand, you’ll understand…

You know your kingdom come is collapsing, but still you reach for the sky
You rest assured that the unbelievers will burn in Hell when they die.

For goodness’ sake all you deserve is a Hitchslap

The object of your worship
Is a scapegoat
To cleanse you of your sins
Is that why you cast them all unto him?

Repentance is a guilt trip
And you’re living in false hope

As the end of his reign begins

Why would you trust the nonsense filling the gap?

When all you need is a Hitchslap.

For goodness’ sake all you deserve is a Hitchslap

Instead of blind faith filling in the gap

For goodness’ sake all you deserve is a Hitchslap
