Christ, a myth or man? Now no longer matters Message is so distorted by the words of men The actual son of god? A flesh embodiment For all eternity, such arrogance overlooked Everything you believe is a lie Everything you believe is a lie History has a victim An act well rehearsed Self-pity reigns in the Kingdom of Israel Central theme Of a chosen race Began the divide, tracing back to Abraham Vision of heaven A quaint concept to me Alive only in dreams Present day enemy Just one more crusade No innocence in a war on progress waged Never showed a sign of the slightest sympathy Stood in the way with a tradition of ignorance Everything you believe is a lie Everything you believe is a lie Everything you believe is a lie Because all of them cannot be right These are only three examples Worthy of a blunt exposure The contempt that they show for each other Eventually will turn inward.

Theme, recurring epoch Ages now long gone Seek and you will find the link you looked for all along Follow reasoned path Most objective view Question what you ask before you ask it Monomythic Timeless gimmick Common story That defines a hero Monomythic With a thousand faces Basic pattern For the trials he must undergo Adventure, refusal, supernatural One mission as initiation, temptation From death to rebirth, now exalted Atone in triumph, apotheosis This is not a message of blasphemy This is some guidance for how it has to be All mythology in Heaven Does not describe the truth The wonder I have seen in colours of existence Fraudulent construct It seems the game is up You know you’re not a saviour you are Monomythic Timeless gimmick Common story That defines a hero Monomythic With a thousand faces Basic pattern For the trials he must undergo

Evil of establishment Clearly it is evident You would think we would be closer to An era of enlightenment Choked by misguidance Dominance does not mean truth Know the only difference Cult to religious Is the count of worshipers Superstition become fact Repetition of a pact By design, a twisted view is born Next messiah waits for his turn The enemy of my enemy is still my enemy Self-important usurper Aspire to superhuman power To take ideals not yours From time immemorial “Do what thou wilt” did not work Cannot act in absolutes Eternally deceive yourself Weak, not strong, this law deserts Rituals achieve nothing It’s a private nemesis Philosophy of hatred cursed Hail Satan? You’re the biggest fool There is no answer in someone else’s words Do not let the rhetoric ever sway your choice Let freedom reign supreme above all else And never trust the motives of any priest

Down to the simplest form There is will to remain Immortality in the genes you host Can a miracle be seen? In absolute destiny The truth is so much more than this manmade dream Journey of a seed On winds of a global road Shows the path for all in a natural world Let the strongest live As the weak may die Each into its place, the answer “why” Light will be thrown on the origin of man Chain of being is now redefined If landscapes can be transfigured by slow change, so surely, could flesh modify in the same way Archive of the rocks is a series of snapshots Only taken at long intervals With a badly focussed camera, the analogy goes In good time disturbs all graves No vestige of beginning, no prospect of an end Think of all the species unknown To taste oblivion is to master nemesis The clock of Long Now, it strikes the hour The idea that the Universe has been preserved since Creation is now dead and cannot reverse When perfectly viewed Through an objective lens The legacy of resistance falls away Light will be thrown on the origin of man Chain of being is now redefined There is grandeur in this view of life And endless forms, most beautiful

Face on the moon made from shadows in gloom Is a wrong revelation, a logic vacuum Invisible shape that is all in the mind These marvels are like clouds in the sky Stigmata is a fraud A false miracle never performed Unverified claims parading as truth A zeitgeist is spawned when your fear is let loose An odour of sanctity, stories abound No question there is work to be done

Every - single - self serving incarnation Every - passion - that it tried to block Betray - reason - the stuff of legend Every page of every holy book Is a living, breathing lie God has abandoned you When you needed it most The fundamental error Faith is a path to nowhere Petty - jealous – figure from the Old Testament Anger - for prayers - never answered What the - truth is - you will never know No evidence, coincidental chance Find divine in the widest gaps God is the human mind And it tricks us sometimes If you must believe in something Why don’t you make it yourself?

I realise it is hard to discard All that you knew from birth Sacred message shown Conditioned to feed a divine ego It will seem like the loss of a safety net, a great unknown Just let it go Let it go Let it go!!!!! Plea for reason, no compromise for an end to intolerance, this should be the dream of ages Is it losing faith or running free? Don’t be afraid to fall In this you’re not alone Step forward from a deluded past No more a world of hate, those walls are coming down Just let it go Let it go Let it go!!!!! The

Cracks have formed in the rationale Common sense over ancient texts A moral code is human Not born from the spiritual world Life and death unavoidable As sure as Earth circles the Sun Learn before you play the judge Sentenced heretic, condemned To fire Monuments to atrocity, found in all religions Stay preserved or swept away by fire (swept away) by fire Terrified of the emptiness Face the fact we might be alone For all sins you compromise When no other logic will hold The more we know the less to luck See the wall of reason is strong There can be peace in a mortal coil Long before the answer is told Frost forms, patterns New birth from nothing Shows that there is hope still to be found Those who would dare to ask “There must be something more?” Look around to see all secrets revealed No longer possible for just one man To possess all knowledge Even in a thousand lifetimes To burn words Is to snuff thought To burn “The word” Is to find freedom An afternoon in a garden, like any other Alone with a cult of one, the Empire of self How many shades of light cloak this day? Never a second chance to live this moment.

about

Recorded in April 2009 at Earth Terminal Studios with Lewis Childs engineering; The God Album introduces a more organic sound for the band sending the listener into philosophical territory. The irony of the title is that the album is not about a singular deity at all; it is a considered critique of the most dangerous social force of our time: organised religion.

The album was initially recorded as a three-piece when still considering what to do about a new guitarist to replace Ian. The choice turned out to be fairly obvious as Hugo and Jon were already playing in a London band called “Dog” with Dimebag disciple: Marcus. He shredded; he was in.

Marcus’ lead and rhythm guitars were written and recorded over the existing tracks prior to and during mixing at Earth Terminal. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute. It is the Monsterworks way.

about

Monsterworks London, UK

MONSTERWORKS : has unashamedly stolen from a ludicrous number of metal sub-genres to create a truly unique beast. Be it thrash, death, old-school, prog or black metal, there is something for everyone. Expect wailing guitars, wailing screams and a pounding rhythm section, delivered by a four-man war of sound. Surely they can’t be serious? ... more
