about

This track was made to encourage the use of reason... There is no good reason to believe that which is unreasonable or irrational.

lyrics

Verse 1:
Bow your heads and pray/ to your sky daddy or zombie
Why people are still doin this/ man it’s beyond me
I’m up against an army/ six billion or more there
So this is my version/ of guerrilla warfare
Many more share/ my view/ but they stay in the closet
When they could use their logic and knowledge as rockets
The object of this project is to get hands outta pockets
And raise ‘em up to tell the prophets of nonsense to stop it
Use reason/ don’t knock it/ if you never tried to do it
And if you don’t know how/ let me guide you through it
First try to prove it/ is it probable or plausible
Does it try to make claims/ that are highly illogical
If it does then it’s not the truth/ it’s just bullshit
That some fools spit/ from behind a pulpit
Ask yourself when you’ll quit/ believing the lies
And break away from the spell/ that’s misleading your lives

Chorus:
You can’t give me a reason/ not to use reason
What you’re perceiving/ could be deceiving
I’ll question everything/ that you believe in
Unweaving/ these webs of lies/ long as I’m breathin

Verse 2:
Call me a heathen/ blasphemer/ infidel
Heretic/ godless/ tell me I’m meant for hell
And feel you hit the nail/ on my perspective
My objective/ is to show your view is defective
Forget the prime directive/ I’m tryin’ to interfere
And activate both your left and right hemisphere
Show you ain’t no sinners here/ ain’t no saints either
Do yourself a favor/ turn up woofers and crank tweeters
Of the faint speakers/ voicing your inner doubt
Blind faith is for losers/ let that winner out
If you feel me send a shout/ Yea/ stand for the truth
If you say there’s a god/ man show some proof
There is no excuse/ for blindly followin’ the herd
They servin’ garbage/ stop swallowin’ the words
When they hollow like a birds/ bones/ you ain’t alone
‘Cause I can’t condone/ living life by an ancient tome

Chorus:
You can’t give me a reason/ not to use reason
What you’re perceiving/ could be deceiving
I’ll question everything/ that you believe in
Unweaving/ these webs of lies/ long as I’m breathin

Verse 3:
If you got in the maze/ of praise/ ‘cause how you were raised
Get over it/ and tell your parents/ it was just a phase
I’m amazed/ that in this age/ we believe in miracles
In books by men that didn’t know the world was spherical
With nothing empirical/ evidence is irrelevant
Some probably think/ I’m devil sent/ or malevolent
I ain’t doin’ this for the hell of it/ hell is imaginary
Like goblins, trolls, gods, orcs, elves and fairies
You can’t scare me/ my patience is growing very thin
Listenin to adults/ with imaginary friends
Forget your prayer and sins/ you need to change your focus
Before religion eats our seeds/ like a plague of locusts
Get your mind out the days of Moses/ it’s mythology
Rip the prophesy/ right out of your philosophy
That’s how it gots to be/ give a reason not to do it
If things are how religion says/ you got to prove it

Chorus:
You can’t give me a reason/ not to use reason
What you’re perceiving/ could be deceiving
I’ll question everything/ that you believe in
Unweaving/ these webs of lies/ long as I’m breathin

Ensomniak Cincinnati, Ohio

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
