Guyana (The Cult of the Damned)

The news these days are talking about the 'Sky Kingdom' group in Terengganu. It seems ever so often another one springs up from nowhere.

All these talk of cults and deviant teachings in the papers only serve to remind me of this old song by Manowar (who themselves were quite terpesong!)...

I suppose it's a sign of the times...

Guyana (The Cult of the Damned)

Thank you for the kool-aid reverend Jim
We're glad to leave behind their world of sin
Our lifeless bodies fall on holy ground
Rotting flesh a sacrificial mound
Were you our God or a man in a play who took our applause and forced us to stay
Now all together we lived as we dead on your command by your side

Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your sword for the grand final stand
In the cult of the damned we all worked the land, too afraid to look up
We all feared his hand
Hurry my children
There isn't much time
But we'll meet again on the other side
Be good to the children and old people
First hand them a drink
They're dying of thirst

Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your sword for the grand final stand

Bigfoot, bigfoot thrown in a well
Pulled under water
Screaming like hell
He told us life was just a hotel
Time to check out when he rang the bell

Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your sword for the grand final stand
Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your sword for the grand final stand

Mother, mother.

(If you don't know, the song is about the mass muder and suicide of the cult People's Temple led by Reverend Jim Jones in Guyana back in 1978...)

  • Simon : About this issue - I saw a few blogs that says our Gov is not giving equal rights!?!?!?! *sigh* One minute they say this, next minute they say something else.

    Shag : What we read in the papers are this guy who combines all the religions into one happy, happy, joy, joy family. (my own definination) Does that make them deviant?

  • You know..when I read about that...I was like "Poor people, they were living so peacefully until the govt started disturbing their peace"

    The teapots are cool though. I thought the village looked like an amusement park =P

  • He's not wrong about life being a hotel that we check into. Except that checking out should be decided by ourselves, not him.
