earth gods lyrics – wisdom in chains

they’ve arrived
they’re here to rule us
here to control us
they’re here to feed on us

they feed the hungry
but steal from the poor
they want to be served
but also adored

they walk among us
but slightly above us
there’s hardly a difference
they demand worship from us

who’s gonna pull our strings?
and what do we do with our pride?
we’ll offer it up to the earth gods

they need our affection
they crave our attention
let’s give them daily devotion
‘cause we don’t want them angry at us

they live in conversations
whispered soft and envious
they give us meaning
a reason to keep on breathing
and all they want is our love
they eat fear and joy
love and hate
peace and war
they’re never satisfied, they want it all
they demand worship from everyone of us

who’s gonna pull our strings?
and what do we do with our pride?
we’ll offer it up to the earth gods

no more mystery
or praying to an unseen deity
i speak to earth gods constantly
they promise to keep me safe so i do what they say

it’s such a waste
praying to a god that don’t exist
when you can meet them face to face
and they can decide what should be your fate

what an honor, what a privilege
they’ve chosen you, take advantage
so we can learn from them and maybe one day
we can be one of the earth gods
we can be just like them
