  • Ahh, ahh, ahh
    Lead me to the oceans white sands
    Ahh, ahh, ahh
    Where I can catch myself
    Ahh, ahh, ahh
    Let the water cool and soothe me
    Ahh, ahh, ahh
    A steady rhythm flows

    I cannot deny it's holy
    I know who you are
    I can feel
    You know me

    Send your pretender
    A man divine his power
    Who dares judge or question
    His words scripted by liars
    Gross intervention

    Proclaims their one desire
    Distorting the facts
    Ancient voices tired

    Ahh, ahh, ahh
    Forgotten words from long ago
    Ahh, ahh, ahh
    Speak volumes to me now
    Ahh, ahh, ahh
    Plagiarism is our truth
    Ahh, ahh, ahh
    Allegiance to a hoax

    So these chosen few are holy
    Perpetuate fear
    Til the guilt consumes me

    Send your Pretender
    Designed for one Empire
    Erase the offenders
    Persecuted fires
    They will not answer
    For wars which they inspired
    And those who surrender
    Their voices growing tired

    Shaped
    Each one of us
    Shadows of the
    Third century
    Our fate
    A fatal error
    Created our
    Tragic history

    Buried message
    The writings of truth
    Religions challenged
    There not amused

    Transformed vision
    This truth recognized
    No further deception
    Their pious position

    Send your Pretender
    Designed for one Empire
    Erase the offenders
    Persecuted fires
    Who dares judge or question
    These words scripted by liars
    They will not answer
    For wars which they inspired

    Parallels
    Understanding
    The message is clear
    Fanned into full flame
    Ideology
    Beliefs in a system
    Unlike philosophy
    The failure to listen
