This is too much for mankind to survive

This is too much for mankind to survive
Lily petals wilting slowly in the hand that is not awake
I cry, in crass mutterings,
“I miss the ever present sense of dignity in your
self-noting, berating lack of emotional responsibility.”

This time there’s no reason to be afraid
This time there’s no atonement to be made
This time I’ll pass the sacrament to you

The dark inhibited one has no message to share
No fear, no second-guessing in the pulpit of despair
There’s enough strength inside of us to combat the ills of our world
Can you hear the voice that delineates between right and wrong?
There is no reason for a God at all

The truant god, not a matter of time
Man is not a machine, our sins can never be cleansed

The truant god, just a matter of time
Man is not a machine, our sins can never be reprogrammed
