Newer version of a song I put out as a youtube video

lyrics

The spark you bear begins to sputter
Profanity your passions utter
Might heaven's milkmaid give us butter
Near her great threshold lies your gutter
With warfare and a new election
God's mirror gapes with imperfection
How wrong to claim your bleeding savior
Died for your sins not your behavior
Vain prayers and vain chants
This empire of the ants

Betray your only testament
Your golden crown is lost and spent
Sacrifice your children's place
A line in satan's laughing face
The sacred herb from valley bright
You squander for a drunkard's blight
The gift of smoke of peace you scorn
Your shackles forged and ever worn
Vain prayers and vain chants
This empire of the ants

Your chieftains gird themselves to fight
Betray each day to hungry night
Your garish vaunted idols tower
Without man's hand where's satan's power?
The old and wise you mock and jeer
They cry truth to your deafened ears
But they have all passed far from dust
No more to covet dead bone's lust
Vain prayers and vain chants
This empire of the ants

The spark you bear begins to sputter
Profanity your passions utter
Might heaven's milkmaid give u s butter
Near her great threshold lies your gutter
With warfare and a new election
God's mirror gapes with imperfection
How wrong to think your bleeding savior
Died for some curse not your behavior
Vain prayers and vain chants
This empire of the ants
