Brand new track from my new progressive shred metal album The Revelation Stockpile/Alexandria Before the Fire.
Everything in the Universe denies 'nothing', to suggest otherwise is the one absurdity.
Is it so hard to conceive God with one's senses? Why must He hide in a midst of vague promises and invisible miracles?
How are we to believe the believers when we don't believe ourselves? What will become of us who want to believe but cannot?
And what of those who neither will nor can believe? Why can I not kill God within me?
Why does He go on living in a painful, humiliating way?
I want to tear Him out of my heart, but He remains a mocking reality which I cannot get rid of. Do you hear me?
I hear you.
I want knowledge. Not belief. Not surmise. But knowledge. I want God to put out His hand, show His face, speak to me.
But He is silent.
I cry to Him in the dark, but there seems to be no one there.
Perhaps there is no one there.
Then life is a senseless terror. No man can live with Death and know that everything is nothing.
Most people think neither of Death nor nothingness.
Until they stand on the edge of life and see the Darkness.
Ah, that day.
I see. We must make an idol of our fear, and call it God.
I believe that God is a sadist, but probably doesn't even know it.
