But I can’t see his hand

I don’t know if you feel the same as me, so burn that page - as it doesn’t serve you well
So drain it from your mind - and turn your back on me and my friends
With eyes upon us - fade away

And I can’t control myself anymore
With all my family and friends; they’re falling into sin
But if you pull that page from flame - he is not permitted to sin
So rest your back and I shall quote my friend
“God is dead”

I see it now - why I can’t feel it anymore
Backhand knocking at my door
And though you may feel him - you are not permitted to sin
Never been one of his kin
Or wore his name upon your skin

Why I can’t feel it anymore

Know that I once felt the same
Though will and nill hath burned his name
Along with the page torn from the flame
I’ll quote it now, it reads: God is dead.
