about

The topic is the title... except the opposite. The "second coming", rapture, Armageddon or whatever else that the faithful refer to with the "return of Jesus" to Earth would mean the extinction of the human race (and seemingly the majority of other life on the planet. I, as any sane person should be, am against that. The song explains some of the reasons why...

lyrics

Verse 1:
Why ain’t you sick of these/ phrases/ contradictory
From a preacher in books/ that ain’t hardly even history
It’s a mystery/ why they think a second trip in
Is beneficial/ still they keep the record skippin
They reject the livin/ can’t tell what makes them think
They should go against the most basic of instincts
Long as I have pen ink/ I’ll be writing against them
Over instrum-entals/ tryin’ to break down the system
Every kick drum/ snare and high hat
Will be used against those who choose to deny facts
I defy that/ social norm/ my mind won’t believe
I’d rather die on my feet/ than live on my knees
The quotes don’t agree/ back on the main topic
Why base your life on words of a lame prophet
With insane concepts/ about the end of days
Where you at?/ it’s been millennia since you went away
(He's coming back)

Chorus:
Ain't you tired of the same refrain
They might switch the picture but don't change the frame
About 2000 years the claim’s remained
Part of how they maintain the chains
(He's coming back)

Verse 2:
He’s so gone/ so long/ on so much he was so wrong
Still the followers/ keep singing the same ol’ song
Go on/ and live your life/ I could say that
And let you spin your wheels for years/ like Pat Sajak
Straight facts/ are always better than delusions
Abusin’ illusions/ infusin’ confusion in humans
So much unproven/ and much of it unprovable
But for some reason/ that still passes as truth to you
Still doing what they used to do/ waitin for a return
Hoping they’ll float up on the clouds/ while we burn
When will we learn/ to see/ and not be so damn blind
What kind of psychopath wants the end of mankind
Can’t find/ the answers/ things aren’t going very well
That doesn’t mean that you should live by fairy tales
Or fear some scary hell/ cause of what you don’t believe in
Your god is dead/ let it go/ try to use some reason
(He's coming back)

Chorus:
Ain't you tired of the same refrain
They might switch the picture but don't change the frame
About 2000 years the claim’s remained
Part of how they maintain the chains
(He's coming back)

Verse 3:
Luke 21/ he said this generation won't pass away
Before he came back/ and you would see the last of days
I guess that was a masquerade/ or just a lie prob'ly
If that was really said/ to anyone/ by anybody
Your whole book is shoddy/ but its servant's patience
Is crazy/ as they reinterpret/ reinterpretations
Consider you might be mistaken/ then your life was wasted
Think of the energy spent on this/ if you replaced it
With basic/ efforts to help/ without conviction
'Cause it's the right thing to do/ not 'cause of superstition
Try to lose religion/ you'll find you'll convince yourself
Life is amazing/ without the damaged mental health
Until you're content to shelf/ the dogma and the fiction
And try to overcome that supernatural addiction
Your position/ will be in favor of genocide
While all the time/ it's been a lie
(He's coming back)

Chorus:
Ain't you tired of the same refrain
They might switch the picture but don't change the frame
About 2000 years the claim’s remained
Part of how they maintain the chains
(He's coming back)

about

Ensomniak Cincinnati, Ohio

I'm a writer... a lyricist... I make hiphop music (although I can write for multiple genres)... This page is for my secular/atheist/rational music. I have some other work which due to the style, subject matter and language usage, would probably be categorized as nerdcore... If you are interested in hearing that, check out nyte.bandcamp.com. I make music for people who are willing to think. ... more
