​The Art of Deception

This song is by Eternal Silence and appears on the album The Arsonist (2010).

You kneel down before the father
And call out his name
"Anything you ask of me"
"I shall obey"

You will never find the strength
To release what lies within
Plagued by the words
Forced on to you from him

Tears of despair
Fill my eyes
Spreading within me
My hate grows stronger

Filth and corruption
Intrude my mind
Tearing me apart
From inside

The epitome of hate
Scars your soul
Lies and deception
Mind control

Forgive me father
For now I shall sin
Released to the world
Your reign now shall end

I seek my redemption
As I end your life
The tables now have turned
As it's your turn to die

Now you hide behind your collar
A servant faithful to your god
Defiling the young at will
Neglecting so-called laws

The dominance you once possessed
Is overcome by fear
The desire in which you obsessed
Will soon be laid to rest

Tears of despair
Fill my eyes
Spreading within me
My hate grows stronger

Filth and corruption
Intrude my mind
Tearing me apart
From inside
