[quote:e5021faaac]If the stars,
Fall down on me,
And the sun,
Refused to shine,
Then may the shackles be undone,
May all the old words cease to rhyme
If the sky,
Turned Into Stone,
It would matter not at all,
For there is no heaven,
In the sky,
Hell does not wait,
For our downfall!

Let the voice of reason shine,
Let the fires vanish,
For all time,
God’s face here,
Is unseen,
You can’t ask him,
What it all means,
He was never on your side,
God was never on your side,
Let right or wrong,
On our own decide
God was never on your side.

See ten thousand ministries
See the holy rightous dogs,
They claim to heal,
But all they do is steal,
An illusion of faith, cheat, and wrong,
If God is wise,
Why is he still,
When these false profits,
Call him friend,
Why is he silent,
Is he blind!?
Are we abandoned?
in the end?

Let the sword of reason shine,
Let us be free of prayer and shrine
God’s face is hidden,
Turned away,
He never has a word to say,
He was never on your side,
God was never on your side,
Let right or wrong,
On our own decide,
God was never on your side!
No, No, No.

(Guitar solo)

He was never on your side,
God was never on your side,
Never!
Never!
Never!
Never!
Never on your side!
Never on your side!
God was never on your side,
Never on your side…[/quote:e5021faaac]

Hey, you could have a whole freethinker playlist if so inclined…

“I Don’t Need Religion,” Motorhead
“Kiss Me Son of God,” They Might Be Giants
“Your Horoscope for Today,” Weird Al Yankovic
“None of the Above,” Duran Duran
“Miracle Man,” Ozzy Osbourne
“Heresy,” Nine Inch Nails
“Blasphemous Rumors,” Depeche Mode
“John the Revelator,” Depeche Mode
“The Meaning of Lice,” Stephin Merritt (delightful meditation on creationism and the capriciousness of the Old Testament deity)
“There Ain’t No Sanity Clause,” The Damned (OK, I may be pushing my luck with this one :? )
“Strychnine Kiss,” The Legendary Pink Dots
“Pennies for Heaven,” The L.P.D.

Anyone care to add more?

HNN begins their podcasts with this song by Holly Near:
(You can download it for free at her website http://www.hollynear.com/free.download.html)

I Ain’t Afraid

I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your churches
I ain’t afraid of your temples
I ain’t afraid of your praying
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

verse
Rise up to your higher power
Free up from fear, it will devour you
Watch out for the ego of the hour
The ones who say they know it
Are the ones who will impose it on you

I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your churches
I ain’t afraid of your temples
I ain’t afraid of your praying
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

verse
Rise up, and see /find/ know/ hear a higher story
Free up from the gods of war and glory
Watch out for the threats of purgatory
The spirit of the wind won’t make a killing off of sin and satan

I ain’t afraid of your Bible
I ain’t afraid of your Torah
I ain’t afraid of your Koran
Dont let the letter of the law
Obsure the spirit of the your love—it’s killing us

I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your churches
I ain’t afraid of your temples
I ain’t afraid of your praying
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God


Money
Culture
Choices
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

Sunday
Spirit
Teachers
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

Sabbath
Borders
Dances
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God double

Children
Music
Stories
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

Rise up to your higher power
Free up
Rise up to your higher power
Free up
Let’s try to be highly evolved
I aint afraid

I Ain’t Afraid

Behold bad art (IMO) in the name of passion! I don’t like it.
