In the Name of God

This song is by Dream Theater and appears on the album Train of Thought (2003).


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
Unconsenting 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?

Woah-oh-woah...

"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
"
(The Battle Hymn of the Republic)
