The faith disheveled Temples distained You praise the mere shadows of gods The word, discolored and vain And the Gods, they know you not They come when the Spirit speaks But your words disdainful Words spawned by the cultureless beings Disclaimed by the once attentive Gods Disarmed, the power words are empty Your way being left to the winds Bitter is the wailing of the sheep Even now the memories are dis Barren, the temple's reason was loss In vulgarian was it swallowed The mundane, so disbanded they are Not of purpose can they find The Great Mother, as if a criminal Disaffiliated from One's people Unwelcome like the rival of a culture Removed, unwelcome She stands Disarrayment of the Values' Core seeds discord For now fulfillment cannot be formed And the sheepfold mourn In the forge of our will we manifest ourselves Empowering our world Yet the fables of a failed faith Show the effects of this spiritual dis Empty, the Gods disavow you Understanding you have lost For what fulfillment can you possibly hold In the end of such means Caught in the chains of enslavement But these chains you do not know You hold the Key to the Truth But these chains they dull your mind
