Man is the cruelest animal

from Founded on the shambles by Blackwater



Flourish in obscurity the ugliest face of mankind
Destined to be forevermore concealed
Forced to repudiate its human nature

Accept the inevitable
“Man is the cruelest animal”

Arose from the heart of man, the root of all evil
We don’t need to summon Belial
He is among us – lingering within

Making atonement for the human nature
An absurd confession of guilt for an inherent disposition
Religion as the principal enemy of moral progress in the world

“Man is the cruelest animal”

Shouldn't we bear responsibility rather than passing the paton?
Shouldn't we try to tame our own demons instead of being at God's mercy?

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he’s impotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Whence then is evil?

We've sentenced ourselves to collapse
