I was not created
In the linkeness of a fraud
Your hell is something scary
I prefer a loving god

We are not the center
Of this funny universe
And what is something worse
I do not serve
In fear of such a curse

Shallow be thy...

    I posted and at the end said listen to Funky Crime. I’m speaking from having gone through an experience which I am still enduring. It’’s spiritual now and has been for the last year of this ten year affliction. Funky Crime speaks of the reasoning I’vevbeen chosen to endure it.

    This song is bashing an entity that may be a Satanic lead group or a group of elder generation whom, in spirit, think they have the right to control us because we are sinners, so much so that they need to "fix" us through brutal torment and "correction" techniques.

    Listen to the song "Funky Crime".

    This is not about all Christianity rather one sect Catholicism.

    I think that this song is bashing religion, especially Christianity.
    "Purple sashes feeding masses, smoke on which to choke"
    Purple sashes worn by priests, the miracle of feeding thousands of people with little food
    "2000 years"-era of Christianity
    "People live in fear/I do not serve in fear"-fear of God for being powerful, etc.
    "I will be your heretic"-Heretics during the Inquisition were accused of manipulating Christianity, spreading wrong ideas
    "You're not born into sin"-Christians believe that they are born with original sin
    More examples, pretty obvious that he's trashing Christianity
