Do you really think

Do you really think
this is what I want?
Do you really think
I need you to kill in my name?
Or rape in my name?
Or steal in my name? †
You change your religion when it suits you
As you hang it in a closet like some worn coat.
Oh, I see you spinning your prayer wheels,
As if that would please me. †
Or throwing your hands in the air and spouting
Amens of marble white
like so many Greek statues.
Did it ever occur to you that rocks have no feelings?
No
I suppose it didnít because youíre nothing but dusty
Bags of water. †I see those of you
calling yourself a title,
but acting like the void between the planets. †
Still, I see those of you not
calling yourself a title.
Heaping hot coals on heads of no conscience.
One tear from me would flood the earth.
I am close to crying.
