Memetaphage

This song is by Architecture Of Aggression and appears on the album Acts Of God: 4000 Years Of Phallusy (2009).

Religion a thought contagion
A memetic virus, virus of faith
Spread by disciples
Acting as viral carriers

A virulent meme infecting populations
It's main ambition to replicate and spread
It brooks no competition
Eradicating opposing views

Like AIDS spreading from parent to child
And to other members of the community
Inflicting itself on each generation
Perpetuating its corruption ad infinitum
Like a virus, a filthy parasitic organism
Completely selfish, prevailing in exclusivity
Malicious and greedy using its host carriers
For its own selfish ends
Like AIDS spreading from parent to child
And to other members of the community
Inflicting itself on each generation
Perpetuating its corruption ad infinitum

Quick and aggressive indoctrination
The human cost is high
Leaving shattered lives in it's wake
In the quest for dominion

Executions, murders, purges
In the name of God
Memetaphage

The written word a paradox
Its agent and its captor
Memetaphage
Accessibility at the price of stagnation
Memetaphage

"It is a meme set in stone, incongruous with our modern time
Like an insect trapped in amber
Thoughts trapped for 4000 years unable to evolve"

Like the common cold it is everywhere
Invading our lives at every turn
To be free of it we need only build immunity
Freedom to brush it aside!
