The innocent believe
in a blood drenched fantasy
in all holy wars
and a cause worth fighting for.

In a leap of faith
I've seen them throw their minds away
and feel no more pain,
they never question anything.

In a leap of faith
all it takes is a leap of faith
it's just a leap away.

Is this happiness?
Is this all that exists for me?
I'm on my knees
in a lofty butchery
without a leap of faith.

You learn to love the lie,
god's creatures multiply
and when they're under fire
they perish with a smile

and a leap of faith
all it takes is a leap of faith
to throw a life away.
