Another Small Sacrifice

Pleasure our god; self indulgence high priest
Our children are devoured by his beasts
Worship him? your choice, perhaps YOU can survive
But His roaring beasts will eat your young alive

Worship at his altar, materialism
Need more, bigger, better; pleasure’s wisdom
In more money I trust; everything is not enough
Child’s soul dies of neglect, sacrifice it I must

Worship at his altar, sexuality
Revel, unrestrained, pleasures of carnality
So what if we create a new unwanted life
For my god, just another small sacrifice

Worship at his altar, irresponsibility
I must be free, a state of utter depravity
My children a mistake; drown them in the lake
For my god, two small sacrifices they will make

Pleasure, a god we can never satisfy,
Commands us always seek a new high
Exploitation, murder his commandments
Abominations for god of false enchantments
