about

This track was born out of frustration... the frustration of seeing the ill effects of faith on humanity... Take a listen... let me know what you think...

lyrics

What’s real is more important than how you feel
How you behave is more important than what you say
What you achieve is more important than what you believe

Without evidence/ your beliefs are irrelevant
All your faith based/ designs are unintelligent
The trifling creation/ that’s stifling education
Seeks the weak minds/ that are ripe for depravation
After all these centuries/ it should be a memory
So it’s sickening/ it’s still inflicting/ so much misery
Killed scientists through history/ trying to maintain the mystery
Wish that I could say/ that it didn’t make sense to me
But it does/ it’s called silencing the opposition
When all you have is dogma/ thinking is competition
Have suspicion their position/ is weak and your cognition
Is seen as sedition/ munitions/ and ill intentions
Dammit the/ planet we/ live on should be a family
Humanity needs to let go/ of this insanity
If you try to say/ that’s not really the way it is
In some countries/ they’d kill me/ just for saying this


Fuck your faith/ if it says that you should criticize
People for who they are/ and not let them live their lives
Fuck your faith/ if it says you should oppose science
Or gives license to those/ who cause or condone violence
Fuck your faith/ if it says you should discriminate
Maybe you should/ eliminate what you venerate
Fuck your faith/ I won’t respect something that’s not real
Fuck what you believe/ and fuck how this might make you feel


The god idea is old/ don’t you think it should die soon
Put it through it’s paces/ like you’re dueling at high noon
My tune/ won’t change/ without sufficient evidence
No deference/ if you use ancient books as reference
If you think you got answers/ from clergy and preachers
What’s the point of doing experiments/ and research
Which faith has tried to roadblock/ bring to a cold stop
‘Cause it doesn’t fit the mold/ they sold to their whole flock
Don’t knock/ on my door/ trying to proselytize
Or come to my room/ if I’m ever hospitalized
I’m not buying your false hope/ and impossible lies
Which are nothing more/ than a lack/ of thought in disguise
There’s been too much pain/ too much war/ too much hating
In the name of faith/ it’s a disgrace/ it’s frustrating
Why do I bother/ why don’t I let them say what they will?
‘Cause kids die/ when adults would rather pray when they’re ill

Fuck your faith/ if it says that you should criticize
People for who they are/ and not let them live their lives
Fuck your faith/ if it says you should oppose science
Or gives license to those/ who cause or condone violence
Fuck your faith/ if it says you should discriminate
Maybe you should/ eliminate what you venerate
Fuck your faith/ I won’t respect something that’s not real
Fuck what you believe/ and fuck how this might make you feel

It’s not all shooting doctors/ at abortions clinics
Suicide bombers/ or claims when you’re born you’re wicked
It’s teaching children/ they should adore some limits
That don’t exist/ that’s why I abhor your tenets
The self-hate it causes/ forcing people to lie
Feeling they’re damaged/ or thinking they’re evil inside
A derelict notion/ shouldn’t define/ what marriage is
Used for leverage/ and as a tool for terrorists
Afraid to ask questions/ knowing how they might react
Worried you’ll offend/ and they’ll think that they’re under attack
Scared you’ll be rejected/ if they detect that you don’t respect it
So the fear makes you hate it/ and yet/ still protect it
Stop treating it/ like it’s a virtue on it’s face
Keep it separate/ from public schools/ and from the state
Faith leads to bad decisions/ and human divisions
Not to mention/ anti-intellectualism

Fuck your faith/ if it says that you should criticize
People for who they are/ and not let them live their lives
Fuck your faith/ if it says you should oppose science
Or gives license to those/ who cause or condone violence
Fuck your faith/ if it says you should discriminate
Maybe you should/ eliminate what you venerate
Fuck your faith/ I won’t respect something that’s not real
Fuck what you believe/ and fuck how this might make you feel
