Cry for the Moon Lyrics

Follow your common sense
You cannot hide yourself behind a fairytale forever and ever
Only by revealing the whole truth can we disclose
The soul of this sick bulwark forever and ever
Forever and ever

Indoctrinated minds so very...

    Follow your common sense?
    You cant hide yourselves behind a fairy tale?

    I'm gonna have to say that's anti-Christian. Whether they are talking about the abuse in the Catholic Church or what. IDK. The Catholic Church does not represent Christianity. "Cry for the moon," means to ask for the impossible. It's impossible for nothing, to make something.

    I like the ideas you mentioned. I noticed, it uses "we", and asks us All to change this sick bulwark. I also tend to think, that it expresses our common fault in something, but it can be more than "who judges who". Maybe it includes more awarness on to our enimvironmental foot print. Or society, how we organise ourself as well. Some old ideology might will have to leave in order to leave the fairytale. I see the beauty in that how easily this can be interpreted as an inner journey as well.

    This song is not against religion, its against fundamentalism.
    As they said in Dutch this song is about Abuses behind closed church doors.

    Also false prophets or those who come in the name of god and condemn others.And people who use god as an excuse for devil deeds, such as lyrics: you can't keep washing your hands in innocence and hide behind old fashioned fairy tails

    From the song part that said follow your common sense and an d don't rely on fairy tails,this music is blaspheming against God and the Bible

    I think this song is talking about how many people judge others and call it good, when they are doing wrong themselves.
