When seeing life through the ego's lens guilt comes along
Our attraction to guilt it is so very, very strong
The black cloud of guilt inside our minds we hold so dear
And nothing is working when constantly dwelling on the fear

Where there's guilt, there will always be
Unhappy people, it's a tragedy
Depression and hate are walking hand in hand
Both eager to serve under your command

Anger but screeches, "Guilt is real!" We're nodding our heads
And year after year regretting things we've done and said
Unnatural thinking will always be attended with guilt
'Cos it's the belief in sin and we're in this to the hilt

When there's guilt you will always feel
Like you're in the midst of a battlefield
You're swaying your sword at an enemy
That's not even there, it's insanity

Sex and drugs and alcohol
We try to fill the deep black hole
Overeating, go shopping at the mall

Instead of embracing what is
We choose the guilt, yeah we choose the abyss
Afraid of the light, of the love we are
We're putting ourselves behind metal bars
The guilt is a bottomless pit
We keep reliving the same old shit
We have to break loose, it's time to break free
Enough of the madness, this stupidity
