ensomniak – parable lyrics

he was a young man looking for some guidance
didn’t know where to go, life on auto-pilot
saw a couple girls and guys who were always smiling

wondered if they had peace when they closed their eyelids
he walked up, they said, “have you heard the gospel?
take this bible, don’t worry, it won’t cost you
you can learn about jesus and his twelve apostles
and celebrate the lord above; his love is so colossal”
was this the great truth that he felt he was seeking?
read the book the whole week, right through the weekend
started thinking to his heart that god was speaking
felt he found the way and this was his beacon
started going to church, wednesday bible cl-sses
early service, late service, helped out at the m-sses
his whole world was spinning, and this was the axis
heaven awaited, he knew he had safe p-ssage

he believes the words on the pages
gives thanks for all the mercies and graces
memorized the stories even quoted chapters
he knows he’ll find his joy in the hereafter
he believes the words on the pages
gives thanks for all the mercies and graces
memorized the stories even quoted chapters
he knows he’ll find his joy in the hereafter

had a whole new family showing love to him
but how they followed the word wasn’t enough for him
told him to calm down, he was too much for them
he responded, “god was the only judge of men”
they call him extremist, a fundamentalist
cause when he needs answers, he runs to genesis
to logic and reason he’s become a nemesis
in the name of jesus how he ends his sentences
not accepting anything contradictory
whether it’s from science or it’s from history
forced his ideas on others, causing misery
all because he believed in the book literally
the rest of his life went on sabbatical
factual eschewed for the supernatural
people whispered, “he’s radical, fanatical”

god’s will must be done, all else collateral

he belongs to words on the pages
a servant of his worships and praises
conforms to the stories, tries to live the chapters
wants to be ready for the impending rapture
he belongs to words on the pages
a servant of his worships and praises

conforms to the stories, tries to live the chapters
wants to be ready for the impending rapture

so he left his church, they were worried ‘bout him
said they were hypocrites, he could do without ‘em
they tried to lift him up back when they found him
but he dove in too deep, now he’s drownin’
a family moved in near, he saw they were different
in their dress, their ways, mostly their religion
started har-ssing them, saying they were sinnin’
shouting insults and slurs right where they were livin’
a guy from his old church saw him causing trouble
but there’s no reason getting inside his bubble
so they got into it, had a little struggle
fell and hit his head, blood began to puddle
it wasn’t the fault of the guy from the church

he didn’t want anybody there to get hurt
but the young man was just going berserk
thinking the whole time he was doing god’s work

he became the words on the pages
nothing more than the verses and phrases
brought to life the stories as if he wrote the chapters
knowing he was doing right by his holy master
he became the words on the pages
nothing more than the verses and phrases
brought to life the stories as if he wrote the chapters
knowing he was doing right by his holy master
he succ-mbed to words on the pages
a victim of the verses and phrases
consumed by the stories, devoured by the chapters
contained in the world’s greatest man-made disaster
he succ-mbed to words on the pages
a victim of the verses and phrases
consumed by the stories, devoured by the chapters
contained in the world’s greatest man-made disaster
