A Prophet-Able Pay Day by Litmus A Freeman on Scribd
Have you wondered why when prophets die those others (priests) come along
And feel the urge to turn their words into religious songs
From wholly truths come vaulted roofs and rules they use to rule
The frightened mass of every class and many have been fooled
And Jesus bled or so they said because he spread his truth
That heaven is inside us all - your intuition's proof
But the ruling class want you to pass your power to their church
And sell control to find your soul and priests to help you search
And the more you're lost the more it costs to find your way back home
You may arrive in Mecca, Jerusalem or Rome
But there you’ll find they’re one of a kind just packaged different ways
Religious laws and Holy Wars to lead us all astray
For a prophet-able pay day!
The Buddha sees on bended knees that stuff is just for show
And advocates Nirvana waits for those without ego
But the thought patrol then make their goal a thousand different ways
With effigies our eyes to please and miss the point of what he says
With words they fool and ridicule the ancient festivals
And build their might on ancient sites to spread their fear of hell
Their dogma knows no bounds and shows that we don’t need some guy
In a Roman shack and a fish head hat to tell us how to buy
A passage when we die
To a dreamland in the sky
You can hear the prophets cry...
Your answers are inside
Repeat Chorus x 2
I wrote the words to this one in 2005 Gregorian but didn't put them to music until the winter of 2010/11 Gregorian
It's basically about how the simple words of the prophets (if they ever physically existed?) have been taken by the preachers of the various religions, distorted and used as dogma to control people. No more so than by "...some guy in a Roman shack (above) and a fish head hat..."
And, having studied the philosophy of Buddhism during my early 30's I was amazed when later travelling in Thailand in my early 40's to find thousands of Buddhist temples all over the country housing massive gold effigies of the Buddha!
I've since discovered that 'Buddha' is the Hindi word for the planet Mercury (symbol ☿) and so represents wisdom and enlightenment symbolically as he is the closest planet to the Sun (symbol ☉ - personified as 'Jesus' in astro-theology), and therefore closest to the source of our spiritual & physical energy. I realised that it's pretty much the same with all the major religions; the preachers seem to have completely missed the point of the original message, but maybe this is more by design than accident...?
There's certainly a lot of dosh involved as anyone else who's seen the opulent exhibitions of wealth inside the building shown at the top of this section will know!
For me it's all about the major difference between spirituality and organised religion
