lyrics

Westboro *1

Vile filth sits behind your lips
Your lungs exhale from the pit of hell
Cloaked in "righteousness”
your perversion rots your flesh
The weight of your increasing debt
Is a millstone around your neck
Hung by the knot tied in your words
Your dwelling place is the ocean floor. *2

Drowning in the blood of those you've led astray
Your charming game
Is the knot you tie
For selfish gain
you’ve crafted our demise
Pointing twisted fingers
Weaving endless lies
You are the wolf in the midst of sheep *3
You and I have no peace to keep! *4

Your eyes are a mirror
Your heart is a mire
You prey on the helpless
Any last words

You’ve led us to the gallows
With flattering tongue
You’ve led us to the gallows
and harkened our ruin

The hangman's noose
Is where you'll rest your head
The demons you've loosed
Are the very ones you dread
Your death will come
From your arrogant blasphemes
The prince of lies *5
Is counting the souls you reap
Running your mouth is the only trick you know
Your true colors are starting to show
Turning water to tithes *6
Your end is where the worm never dies
Preaching lies with hate and disgust
You’ll turn to dust with the midas touch
Exhaling lies until your final breath
You are the harbinger of death

The ground lays open for the
Lives you’ve destroyed
You’ve led us to the gallows
With flattering tongue
You’ve led us to the gallows
You will be silenced!

You will die, a coward's death.
You’ll rot in the flesh till there’s nothing left.

*1 Westboro Baptist Church, to be exact.
*2 Matthew 18:6; A large portions of the references in this song are condemnations that scripture levels against false teachers.
*3 Matthew 7:15
*4 Romans 12:18; This verse refers to keeping peace with brothers and sisters in Christ.
*5 John 8:44
*6 John 2:1-11; This passage refers Jesus’ first miracle in which He turns water into wine. The suggestion with the reference is that false teachers are using the Gospel to garner personal wealth.
