Since the start of the 17th century,
There's been the scent of unseasoned wood burning in the air
And the conquest of nature meant nothing at all,
While we betray exception, we take all that's there.

Motives are translucent in the reflection of shame,
The actions ghostly remnants of our ancestral ways
And unwittingly, you just take your place in this parade.
The voracious march of godliness makes us all the same anyway,
All the same.

Since the dawn of our human family,
There's been concentrated sepsis blowing in the breeze
And we turned on each other with ferocity,
Desperation, forced without reprieve.

But the missions were misguided and the trammel led astray,
The air resounds with thunder as the victors seized the day
And the haunting voice of history lives ignored but not betrayed.
The voracious march of godliness will get us close to heaven one day,
Some day...

The voracious march of godliness makes us all the same anyway,
All the same...
