Behind Enemy Lines — Gutter Religion lyrics

America has been conquered by a fundamentalist crusade
That holds god above our heads to keep the masses afraid
We've surrendered sensibility to a morbid spirituality
Shackled by what passes as Christian morality
Opening the bible for justification to close millions of minds
Beating back evolution with "Intelligent Design"
Displaying the flag, side by side, with the crucifix
To sanctify the marriage of religion with politics
In an effort to shield conservatives from a political loss
Jesus, himself, has climbed down from his cross
And while he's warmly embraced at the gop's political rallies
His enemies have been banished to the closets and back alleys
Forever cast out by the "party of inclusion"
That triumphs in the nation that suffers from delusion
Constructing god's church on a foundation of oppression
Dragging our society down the pathway of regression
Independent thought has been stamped out by indoctrinated opinion
We've descended into the depravity of this gutter religion
Christianity infects America like a spiritual plague
Spreading putrid intolerance with their "moral" tirades
They try to whitewash their hypocrisy with more insidious lies
But in the ethical gutter is where their morality resides
Get down on your knees if you want to exist
Ignorant superstition
Bigoted tradition
Because god rules this country with an iron fist
Indoctrinated opinion
Gutter religion
Zealotry is summoning god's vengeance for threatening voters
With the fires of hell and natural disasters
Parting the political waters for the conservative ideologues
God has granted sole authority to his moral watchdogs
There will be no mercy for those who resist
Ignorant superstition
Bigoted tradition
Because god rules this country with an iron fist
Indoctrinated opinion
Gutter religion
Rule of law- under the iron fist
Sexual preference- under the iron fist
Women's rights- under the iron fist
Indoctrination under the iron fist of god
Education- under the iron fist
Social funding- under the iron fist
Science and medicine- under the iron fist
One nation under the iron fist of god
Polluting the fields of education, science and medicine
Corrupting the fda to deny access to emergency contraception
Criminalizing all facts and theories that contradicts the bible
Because when the truth discredits religion it becomes undesirable
Put on a pedestal by the right-wing extremist
Ignorant superstition
Bigoted tradition
Because god rules this country with an iron fist
Indoctrinated opinion
Gutter religion
God has become obsessed with turning back the tide of progress
Erecting Christian dogma over a snuffed out social conscience
Our nation pledges allegiance to a divine abomination
That drags us in the gutter to bask in moral degradation
