Doubt and sin go hand in hand.

Seeing the infamy of his reality

Pulled in by situation's gravity

Pressure to swear his oath

To commit to an order's growth

Choked and put on the wire

As clergy preach brimstone and fire

He must earn his angel wings

Their hymns he must sing

To submit to them to enter heaven's gate

Live by the dogma of divine hate

Contradictions in preacher's advice

To acknowledge Heaven's power twice

Both in day and night

Disobey and you shall stray from God's light

Or so they preach

See nothing in what they teach

To conform or to deviate

No time to wait

Die holy or play a heretic's game

Guranteed to feed the flames

So make the choice

Smother heretical  doubt's voice
