Our father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven

Our father, who art six feet under
I’m humbled by thee death
Thy Kingdom falls
Thy will be run
On earth, and justified by God
And i’ll pledge allegiance, to a desolate piece of cloth
One nation, under nihilism
But somehow forgotten the God without a face that haunts Native Americans
A God, forced on us Native Americans by Christians
So demons,
Grant me the insanity
To not accept the things we’re told we cannot change
F*** up the things we can
And the wisdom to set them straight

I disgorge my burdens
Like a rose, they’re beautiful
But I weave the thorns into a crown to honor my selfish hypocrisy
I place it on my father’s head to die for me
The truancy of a God has left me insane

I hope to enjoy the controversy :)
I myself identify as a satanic buddhist, or zen satanist
