A Heretic's Outcry

First lyrics posted by me. Feedback would be nice as far as the poetic aspect. Enjoy!

You say I am a blasphemer,
that I defy your holy paradigms.
All I ever wanted,
was to hear the voice of reason.

Human kind has now reached a turning point.
Why do you spread hate in the name of god?
We never talked down to your people.
I thought that your religion taught of peaceful ways.

But you keep screaming "HERETIC! HERETIC! HERETIC!
You only lie!
You will not believe
the ways of blind faith!"

Human kind has now reached a turning point.
We must be ready, ready for a war!
The heretics run to the horizon!
They will not conform, we must now turn them all!

What do you want from us?
Why do you hate my people?
We did not want a war!
But this mass murder has forced our hand.

We have no other choice!
This genocide has proven
That we cannot coexist!
One of us will die today!"

And you would keep screaming "HERETIC! HERETIC! HERETIC!
You now must die!
You will not convert
To believe our hollow faith!"
And I could hear your army cry in the distance;
Oh Lord, you are my god and my shepherd, forever will I obey you!
Death will come soon for the traitors! No one will then defy you!
Oh God, my God! Help us slay these heretics!
Oh Lord, my Lord! Help cast down the non-believers!
Inspired by the Beast,
They now spread their lies!
They know not their sin!
But now they must be SILENCED! SILENCED! SILENCED!
Forever they must be cast down
To their eternal DAMNATION!"

Why must you ignite this war?
Why do you spread hate?
Would your prophets kill in the name
of your man-made god!?
You do not understand.
We are the voice of reason!
We did not want this war to happen!
But you had to raise the hand of HOLY WAR!

Why must you kill
In the name of God?
Why would mankind
Continue to obey
The laws of idle tradition,
the laws of blind faith,
The laws of holy paradigm?

And if I died today,
I would not live on.
If I am a heretic, then
I will never change,
but at least I don't believe
In murder
justified by my faith.
but maybe my word wo continue
through another voice of reason,
and maybe someday, I hope
that after it's done
and the war is over,
there can be peace,
and maybe someday,
mankind will be free.
