“Oh Father you’ve betrayed me as upon the cross I hang,
the wages of my sin I know so well.
I have seen your Heaven is just a hollow sham,
I tell thy now I’d rather burn in Hell!”

 

Trying to Be Artificial 8:28
(Music & Lyrics Firman)

Intro:
“The time is Now
The place is Here
Far off in some foreign field
A silo launches its missiles into the mid-day sky
Far out in the distance
The sound of powerful rocket engines can be heard
A siren breaks the silence
And a deadly panic rules the streets
Suddenly, afraid of death
For the first time in your life
You get down on your knees and pray-
Our Father, who art in Heaven
Hallowed by Thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth, as it is in Heaven…
But before you can finish
The first bomb begets its deadly load
And your body is turned to ashes
And your words are just a whisper
On the now-silent wind”
[SCREAMS]
