Theocracy (band)

  1. Has anyone heard of this Christian progressive rock band? I love them. All of their songs actually have biblical references and is blatantly Christian.

    A child in sweet duplicity
    For innocence? Or slavery to nature
    And the bents that haunt him straight out of the womb?
    He doesn’t have to learn the things unseemly that his instinct brings
    To carry like a burden from the cradle to the tomb
    You’ll never have to teach him how to lie
    If we are born in innocence, well, don’t you wonder why?
    For selfishness already dwells inside
    The birthright of Adam, the curse of the old man

    Day and night
    Jekyll and Hyde in the fairytale
    This is much more frightening
    Darkness and light
    Feed the new man and tear the veil
    See the old man dying

    Behold the loving family man
    Who tries to do the best he can
    And loves his wife and children even more than his own life
    But just like that, a wandering eye leads to a suffocating lie
    And selfishness and deep betrayal cuts them like a knife
    If mankind doesn’t have a sinful drive
    Then tell me why he’d wreck his life to get some on the side?
    The warring of two natures deep inside
    Starving the new keeps the old man alive

    Soulsickness nailed to a cross

    Solo: Jon
    Solo: Val
    Harmonies: Val and Jon

    Humankind in innocence, a lie so thinly veiled
    Man born without Soulsickness: this is the fairytale
    Hide in the fairytale
