Graven Images

Is this right?

Burn it into your skin

Regret should be running through your heart

Should you be quaking, trembling?

Is this what your God forbade?

Unholy blemishes

Is this forbidden?

Do you betray your Lord?

Is this a misinterpretation?

Scar me, mark me apart

Are you condemned?

Where do you stand?

I am asking you

Where do you stand?!

Tell me

Are these images a disgrace?

Evil cuts in your skin

Where do you stand?!

Look back

Pray for this

Is this a disgrace?

Are these bodies a gift?

Aren't they temporary?

Is this graffiti?

Quake in your boots

The ink will change your mind

The End
