Artwork by Melissa Guachun


Into innocent lives they break
Your free will they take
As caring souls they are disguised
Natural tendencies chastised


Your rights hijacked by shadows
Unseen hands steal away
Cold grip leads to the gallows
Never again to see the light of day

Running as the sirens cry out
Captors, cloaked in darkness
Waiting, for family day by day
Yet it was their faith that signed your life away

Appalling criminal actions
Committed by evil religious factions
Indoctrination must end
Mental trauma cannot mend

“A place where they can cure
your ungodly sins.
We force you into salvation
with the rest of your kin.”

Among the imprisoned youth
Discontented undercurrents flare,
Sadists now subject to their own abuse
Torture, the meaning of prayer

Solo: Ron
Solo: Leart

Now we write for the world to see
That hatred brought on by Christianity
Can be cured with some persuasion
Tie preachers up and force re-education
Birthright reclaimed from shackles of insanity
Penance for inhumanity
Nightmare defied, your life shattered before your eyes
No longer will we stomach malicious lies

The abused cries of vengeance justified
Empathy and sympathy, the traits you have denied.
Know the treatment on which you have relied
Will be reciprocated, indignance vilified.
