about

This track is for me... and all the minorities... which atheists are almost everywhere... and for the minorities within minorities... it's encouragement... solidarity... and it's about pride in who you are and the fact that you think... I hope you enjoy...

lyrics

Verse 1:
Religion’s like a siren's song/ but I’m immune to the tune
And it’ll be that way/ from the womb to the tomb
But many assume/ because of my color/ my priority
Is a deity/ better double check your authority
I’m a minority/ in a minority/ where I come from
Where too many minds/ are humdrum/ and undone
And lump sums/ of funds/ are given to some bums
But here’s one son/ that won’t be a sucker/ like a Dum-Dum
Pressure’s like a stun gun/ so many freeze in their tracks
So much church in our culture/ it’s hard to leave when you’re black
Inter-weaved in our past/ so now we’re identified
As inherent believers/ they think it’s a sin if I
Ever refuse to dignify/ their superstitions and fantasies
African American atheist/ what did he say/ can it be
What about his family/ was he accepted or rejected
I was one of the lucky ones/ some disagree but I’m still respected

Chorus:
Don’t care what they’re telling me
There’s no fear of hell in me
Ignore what they say to you
You shouldn’t be praying too
Country, culture or my skin
Can’t tell you what lies within
Regardless what else you do
Make sure you believe in you

Verse 2:
I used to laugh/ at religious cats who couldn't do the math
They don't see the truth is wrapped/ up like a caduceus staff
Proof is passed/ over/ like blood marked Zionist doors
They lying in scores/ while sending men to die in their wars
I could try to ignore/ Jesus/ Allah and Yahweh
And all the other so-called gods/ but I'd be at it all day
Cause too many fall prey/ to thoughts they were infected with
And it's like for being black/ that faith is a prerequisite
I hope that I corrected it/ if that was your assumption
Only the weak/ need something/ supernatural to function
My deduction at this junction/ ignorance is a dungeon
And I'm part of the production/ of the tool of its destruction
You're a fool if your presumption/ was it's not essential
To make non-believers/ out of Christians, Muslims and Hindus
It's all in their mental/ they're confused in their delusions
Their reality's a fallacy/ and useless 'less it's proven

Chorus:
Don’t care what they’re telling me
There’s no fear of hell in me
Ignore what they say to you
You shouldn’t be praying too
Country, culture or my skin
Can’t tell you what lies within
Regardless what else you do
Make sure you believe in you

Verse 3:
No one wants to be ostracized/ so many of us compromise
Pretending we’re homogenized/ to views long fossilized
Don’t have to hypothesize/ it’s already common knowledge
And it might take some time/ but one day we’ll get laws abolished
That allow for the walls demolished/ between church and state
And worthless faith/ isn’t used to/ besmirch and hate
Unfortunately I’m forced to wait/ but doesn’t mean I won’t expedite it
There’s ways out of religion/ I use my music and text to guide it
Don’t hide it/ or be quiet/ stand up for yourself/ say it loud
I don’t believe in any god/ let them pray it out
To those that need to delay your route/ take this to your heart
Anyone who really loves you/ accepts you for who you are
For the rest of us/ we need to do our part/ I’ll say it explicitly
Let people know they’re not alone/ not matter their ethnicity
Insist that we/ show everyone/ that there's an alternative
You’re born to think/ you’re born to learn/ you’re born to love/ you’re born to live

Chorus:
Don’t care what they’re telling me
There’s no fear of hell in me
Ignore what they say to you
You shouldn’t be praying too
Country, culture or my skin
Can’t tell you what lies within
Regardless what else you do
Make sure you believe in you

I'm a writer... a lyricist... I make hiphop music (although I can write for multiple genres)... This page is for my secular/atheist/rational music. I have some other work which due to the style, subject matter and language usage, would probably be categorized as nerdcore... If you are interested in hearing that, check out nyte.bandcamp.com. I make music for people who are willing to think. ... more
