DREAM THEATER

DREAM THEATER - In The Name Of God

rate me

How can this be?

Why is he the chosen one?

Saint gone astray

With a scepter and a gun

Learn to believe

In the mighty and the strong

Come bleed the beast

Follow me it won't be long

Listen when the prophet

Speaks to you

Killing in the name of God

Passion

Twisting faith into violence

In the name of God

Straight is the path

Leading to your salvation

Slaying the weak

Ethnic elimination

Any day we'll all be

Swept away

You'll be saved

As long as you obey

Lies

Tools of the devil inside

Written in Holy disguise

Meant to deceive and divide

Us all

Listen when the prophet

Speaks to you

Killing in the name of God

Passion

Twisting faith into violence

In the name of God

Blurring the lines

Between virtue and sin

They can't tell

Where God ends

And mankind begins

They know no other

Life but this

From the cradle

They are claimed

Listen when the prophet

Speaks to you

Killing in the name of God

Passion

Twisting faith into violence

In the name of God

Hundreds of believers

Lured into a doomsday cult

All would perish

In the name of God

Self-proclaimed messiah

Led his servants

To their death

Eighty murdered

In the name of God

Forty sons and daughters

Un-consenting plural wives

Perversions

In the name of God

Underground religion

Turning toward

The mainstream light

Blind devotion

In the name of God

Justifying violence

Citing from the Holy Book

Teaching hatred

In the name of God

Listen when the prophet

Speaks to you

Killing in the name of God

Passion

Twisting faith into violence

In the name of God

In the name of God

Religious beliefs

Fanatic obsession

Does following faith

Lead us to violence?

Unyielding crusade

Divine revelation

Does following faith

Lead us to violence?
