SPREAD THE SICKNESS - INFECT THE WORLD

DEIFY

All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
I was too blinded to see
How much you’ve stolen from me

You want to know why
I feel so horrified
I’ve let my innocence die
You want to know why
I can’t be pacified
You made me bury something
I won’t be sleeping tonight

 

I only wanted a blessing made
Now I’ve been labeled a renegade
It seems so clear now what I must do
You’re no immortal, I won’t let them

 

Deify you
They view you as the new messiah
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented man

 

You want to know why
It seems the passion’s died
We’ve all been living this lie
You want to know why
My will’s been fortified
You made me hunger again
Good luck sleeping tonight

I only wanted a blessing made

Now I’ve been labeled a renegade

It seems so clear now what I must do

You’re no immortal, I won’t let them

Deify you

They view you as the new messiah

Deify you

Renew belief in some demented man

All my devotion betrayed

I am no longer afraid

I was too blinded to see

How much you’ve stolen from me

Deify you

They view you as the new messiah

Deify you

Renew belief in some demented man

Deify you

They view you as the new messiah

Deify you

Renew belief in some demented man

SONG MEANING

“The song’s not specifically about George Bush, it’s about people like him. It’s meant to be cryptic and ambiguous. It’s about attributing God-like qualities to politicians and public figures. That’s why in the beginning you hear that sample from Bush’s 9/11 speech. It’s the perfect example of someone who was attributed God-like power, and deified. Whether it’s Bush, the Pope, Ted Turner, or anybody else like that, it just warns of the danger of that sort of behavior, treating a human being like a God.”
