The Torment Cross

lyrics

We come to free a name from the confinement of your unloving church walls, from dogmas, interpretation and abuse. We come to purify the Nazarene’s memory of all religious crimes.
We come to redeem the tortured conqueror, to free him of the bloody worship of the tormented cross. Free the noble name of all man-made foolishness, out of the hands of the abiding pharisees, scientists, theologians and hypocrites. Free this true son of your misunderstood, god of the disgraces of his 2000-year captivity. Away with this bloody worship and ritual phrases. Stop worshiping your god on knees, on which the pope and your bad conscience threw you. This god wants no slaves, no groveler, no snakes. What a strange homage to turn the pain and the torment into the badge of your dubious religion. Where does this church body, this institution, give opportunity to the simplicity of original love? What's all this pomp and wealth of the churches when they are lacking in richness of love. Who wants to stop the future? Who prevents the wind from blowing over the land? Who prevents the truth from freeing itself?
Don't be afraid, there's a light in the darkness.
Don't you know that our war is won?
Don't you see that silver glowing?
Free the truth, now it will be done.
