about

This track is done for those who are on the edge of letting go of religion and for those who've already done so. I've never been a believer myself, but I've listened to the stories and read about the struggles and plights of those who have. I hope I've captured the sentiments well and that people are able to relate to this. Thanks for listening!

lyrics

Lennon sang imagine/ few tried to envision
Life with no heaven/ no hell/ and no religion
Decisions/ would be made/ based upon compassion
Without any reward of life/ that’s everlastin’
He wasn’t askin’ much/ just to open your mind
Hopin you’ll find/ you may be only towin’ the line
For those that designed/ ways to keep you broken, confined
Invokin’ divine/ words/ what they’re promotin’s malign
Why be devoted and blind/ to what has been embedded
You’ve been told your whole life/ I’m sure it’s hard to forget it
Reality’s so poetic/ reason/ never reject it
Respect it/ see the world as it is/ you won’t regret it
Give doctors their credit/ medicine’s not a miracle
It’s science and dedication/ no part of it’s spiritual
If someone put fear in you/ about asking questions
Maybe it’s just their own doubts/ that they’re projectin’

Without angels, there’d be no less vividness
And people would realize some things are coincidence
Without devils, the world would still be the same
When people do wrong they just can’t shift the blame
No miracles, in ignorance, there’s humility
Anything can happen, given probability
And without gods, it’d change the mentality
For so many, and how they engage reality

Postulate for a second/ there’s no source of evil
Just outcomes/ of bad choices from bad people
No Satan trying to deceive you/ no fire and brimstone
No god up in the sky/ pushing Stockholm syndrome
Religion’s a symptom/ of ignorance, lack of sciences
For the unexplainable/ they invented appliances
But so much violence is/ done in the name of faith
I see why they needed it then/ but it’s time it was replaced
So much/ effort we waste/ on mental archeology
That could be used on/ society or technology
You owe an apology/ if you proselytized
But still I’m not blaming you/ if you got lost in the lies
It’s not easy to toss it aside/ I’m sure it has to be arduous
But it’s necessary to see/ just how marvelous
The world is/ it’s a part of us/ feel the catharsis
As Mr. Sagan said/ we are made of star stuff

Without angels, there’d be no less vividness
And people would realize some things are coincidence
Without devils, the world would still be the same
When people do wrong they just can’t shift the blame
No miracles, in ignorance, there’s humility
Anything can happen, given probability
And without gods, it’d change the mentality
For so many, and how they engage reality

If the only thing stopping you/ from being a parasite
Is the hope the one day/ you could live in paradise
Then that’s a scary sight/ you’re more or less/ moralless
In that case/ your professed/ beliefs/ are probably for the best
But for the rest/ of homo sapiens/ consider humanism
There’s no true religion/ they’re all/ different superstitions
Choose a new position/ this life is all we have ta
Contribute to the world/ feel love and laughter
And after/ this/ all that’s left of you is memories
That might make you consider/ how you use your energies
Too many entities/ are enemies/ to our betterment
Your life may have storms/ but it’s you/ that can weather it
No supernatural impediments/ no spiritual crutches
Not in the hands of cherubim/ nor in a demon’s clutches
As much as/ it may comfort you/ or set your mind at ease
Think of how it must feel/ when you’re finally free

Without angels, there’d be no less vividness
And people would realize some things are coincidence
Without devils, the world would still be the same
When people do wrong they just can’t shift the blame
No miracles, in ignorance, there’s humility
Anything can happen, given probability
And without gods, it’d change the mentality
For so many, and how they engage reality

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.
