Spoken Word: Religion! Religion! Religion

Belief without understanding leaves me vexed! Everyone else knowing the highway to heaven, like a twig in a tornado facing denials

Spoken Word: Religion! Religion! Religion

Belief without understanding leaves me vexed! Everyone else knowing the highway to heaven, like a twig in a tornado facing denials

Religion! Religion! Religion!!
Leave me so perplexed
Belief without understanding
Leaves me vexed
Everyone else knowing the highway to heaven
Like a twig in a tornado facing denials
Generations of accusations and trials
Temptation right time, right place, got me perplexed
Years of tears through fears
Still my sinful accounts stand in religious arrears
Enticement with the strength of a super hero
Bends courage with lust and passion to zero

Riddles riddles riddles
If we sin by thoughts words and deed
Why is it that a newborn is born in sin
Who tapped that psyche
So if that innocent child dies he can't win
Fitting in the fire with Dahmer and Hitler
Forgiveness for some is rationed
Through faith others got by on religion
Tell me again who rights that account hither
Nature displays there is a supreme power
Does a name matter except for religious status
Can we be a cell in the body of this giant being
Honesty and truth values that'll never be seen

Race! Race! Race
You stand seeing an equal place
Adaptation of any and every religion
To preaching and teaching you haste
Forgiveness is that drug
Decaffeinated hatred Instant or brewed
Some'll deliver stealing and lying like a rug
Deliverance and acceptance should be equal
Even nature ushers its forces color blind and impartial
It's time racist bottom feeders who progress on high
Activate compassion for humanity without asking why
As long as the heart is pumping blood through your aorta
Equality dictates color of skin nor race should ever matter
Before I adapt blasphemy and sin
I'll riddle religion and race then love each other from within
