Atheist Anthem


wont you ever help me
sing this Atheist Anthem
it’s not so hard to do..

wont you ever help me
sing this Atheist Anthem
it’s not so hard to do..

if you’ve ever been
damaged by religious persuasion
can I get an amen?
won’t you stand up
salute the atheist flag

if you’ve ever been confused
by creationist dogma
well, can I get a hallelujah

if you’ve ever been
dragged down
by a creationist drag

cos I’m descended from the monkeys
who jumped down from the trees
somewhere back in Africa
you can blame it on
the birds and the bees

but in the good old U.S. of A
they staged
Monkey Trials in the schools

and they tried to explain
a Creationist God

they tried to turn
all those kids into fools

see they just couldn’t bear to believe
that we once crawled out of rock pools

covered in the shit of the primal ooze
and well, Charlie Darwin was
just a Communist anyway...

so give me my apple pie
my flag
and my mom
knuckle down son

to the fundamentalist rules

we’ve got a
1000 points of light
don’t squeeze the trigger
til you see
the whites of their eyes
and don’t forget son
we’ve got the bomb

and wont you ever help me
sing this Atheist Anthem
it’s not so hard to do..

and wont you ever help me
sing this Atheist Anthem
it’s not so hard to do..
Track Name: For Bolsonaro
For Bolsonaro


Have you heard about Bolsonaro?
and what he’s doing in the Matto grosso
Next time you get a severe
asthma attack
thats because
one more hectares been cleared
and turned to ash

Yes The man is a virus
and if you dont
kill it I will
yes I will
So somebody quick get a shot
& fly to Brazil

cos everyday that that man is in place
I’m finding it harder & harder to face
the knowledge
the will of the many can’t overturn
a politician prepared to stand by
while the rainforest burn

Yes The man is a virus
& if you cant kill it
I will
yes I will
so someone please get a shot
& fly to Brazil

Well I’ve been down before
but truly
never so low
so low

Now I’m praying
with each passing day for us all

and the Matto Grosso
and the Matto Grosso
Track Name: Ownlife
Ownlife


kiss me cos I’m bound to die
but I can’t even take my own life
won’t you help me
to contact The Brotherhood?
I’ve been outside
the whole time

we used to live in
a golden country
we used to make love
under the sun

once I even thought
that we’d made a contact
but they get you like that
one by one..


in a little room
above an old junk shop
we made love and we hid out of sight
we had our books and music
and chocolate
we had coffee and paintings and light

i used to stare from a dirty back window
i used to wait for the knock on the door
we were so used to each other’s promises
now there’s nothing like that anymore

baby kiss me cos I’m bound to die
won’t you kiss me
just where i lie
i used to want
to contact The Brotherhood
they were outside the whole time
yeah they were outside
the whole time

i´ve been outside of my Ownlife
