lyrics

You know, I never changed.
I stay true, to my family.
I never turned my back on you.
So you took this kindness for granted.

You spoke the words of God.
But only spread your lies.
The words you spoke are hollow.
But I took them all to heart.

You thought you had us all.
As if we all were blind.
I saw right through your lies.
I saw hate in you eyes.

You spoke the words of God.
But only spread your lies.
The words you spoke are hollow.
But I took them all to heart.

So go on, Spit your venom.

Your words are tainted.
Like spreading cancer.
That needs to be cut out.
Before its fatal.

Your heart is tarnished.
By the flames you ignited.
Like fuel for the fire.
You let everything burn away.

You prey among the weak.
Taking innocents for ignorance.
Manipulate into their lives.
You built you altar upon ashes.

I'll wait and watch you bleed.
Upon your alter of lies.

You're a cancer to this world.
