Lyrics
Disillusioned
© 2007 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

Judgment coming - take the lambs away to slaughter
No religion - is going to save your sons and daughters
Holy Circus - like a storm above the water
Judgment coming

Disillusioned by the lies our fathers told
Disillusioned by the lies that made us bold
In collusion with religion and the nation
No refusing - just bring on more devastation
Until nothing's left - until nothing's left

Chorus
Somewhere in the middle of the world a river flows
Holy people praying for the land nobody owns
The heretic magician with his box of broken bones
Goes home - to write another book he goes -
He goes back home alone

Prophets preaching with their messages of doom -
Complicated like inscriptions on the tomb
All illusion - and confusion
Convoluted - undisputed
Prophets preaching - revolution

Compensation - as the anger turns to sorrow
Contemplation - of a life with no tomorrow -
In vindication - the sons are falling
In desperation - the mothers calling
With stones and curses - the children dying
No resurrection - only crying

Chorus
Somewhere in the middle of the world a river flows
Holy people praying for the land nobody owns
The heretic magician with his box of broken bones
Goes home to write another book - he goes -
He goes back home - alone

CODA:
Disillusioned by the lies our fathers told
Disillusioned by the lies that made us bold
In collusion with religion and the nation
No refusing - just dedication
Time is coming - take the lambs away to slaughter
No religion - is going to save your sons and daughters
Holy Circus - like a storm above the water
Judgment coming - time is coming
Judgment coming
Time is coming
Judgment coming
Disillusioned
