lyrics

I gave to god my industry and chastity
if only for the chance to sing his praise
talent denied, he put this lust in my body,
and now the madness begins in me
I began to see a way, a terrible way I could triumph over god
My plan was so simple it terrified me
first the mass, then the death.
Displace one note, and diminishment
remove one phrase, the structure would fall.
Why choose him as your instrument
here was the very voice of god.
god singing through this man, an obscenity
my defeat more cruel with each passing bar.
In the madness of a man splintered into shards
if not mine, I’ll destroy this gift for all.
My plan was so simple it terrified me
first the mass, then the death.
Displace one note, and diminishment
remove one phrase, the structure would fall
god laughing at me through him
before I leave this earth, I will laugh at god.
