We built you Sam
In tears and sweat and blood
blisters and sores
Sun-rays piercing through our gaze
leaving holes in our todays
murdering any hope for tomorrow

What happened to that God you spoke of?

punched down my throat!
kicked in my face!
I ain't seen him in your eyes lately
I ain't heard him in your words

You even walkin like the devil these days
with a sly shift
a crooked grin
smirking at the dollar signs of tomorrow
sealing your eyes from the horrors of today

Don't you choke on that hate you cooked in that
awful scented kitchen of pain?

Tell me why you lied, and was it worth it
The culture you called stool
stepped on and then stole
The malignant markings you left on the souls of folk
Scratching for breath in the land that calls them
for trying to breathe
The second hand murders you had a first hand in creating

The love you sold
smashed and shoved into the hulls of ships
To grow rancid, rot, and fester
to ooze, bubble, and puss
to die in the darkness

So, Tell me -

was it worth it?
