"In The Absence Of The Sacred" lyrics - LAMB OF GOD

"In The Absence Of The Sacred"

Violence - a natural reaction in a society
Whose advances are limited to its new technology
Different only in the current mode of destructive intent

Date has replaced real life in this world
No hope for the stop of "progress"
Inevitable bio-link implant
Will replace the feel of human touch

All memory surrogates downloaded bought and sold
No true sense of self
Impending sensory death looming near

A number, this is what you've become
Life digitized, itemized, commodified
Ha, ha, ha, this is what you work for...
