God's Tainted Love

(I didn't write this, but thought it was very good. I'm going to credit the location where I found it.)

 

Dear Benny, hi, how are ya? Love the hat by the way.

 

You may not have noticed but I've been absent for awhile

I wanted to tell you why and how I've been finding my own style

A new way of looking at the world beyond the errors of the past.

You see I've read all of your teachings and can't see how they'll last

Where angels feared to tread has now become the beaten track

but for every step that we took forward, the church took two steps back.

 

It took you four hundred years just to pardon Galileo,

while the murderer of Hypatia still enjoys his saintly halo.

It was these hypocrisies of the church, that drove me from the flock

though I still clung to the ideas and kept some belief in stock

that Jesus really loved me and god was close at hand

and the day was fast approaching when we'd find the promised land.

 

When people could stand together and colour wouldn't mean a thing

but I slowly began to realize that's not the message that god brings.

He constantly plays favorites setting nations against each other

tearing apart families, pitting brother against brother.

The jew and the gentile, the muslim and infidel,

the terrorist gaining heaven while their victims go to hell.

 

This god isn't worth my worship or the thanks that he demands,

and things have gotten so much better now the power's in our own hands.

Life expectancy has tripled, smallpox has been made extinct

our eyes pierced the veil of heaven and what was hazy is now distinct.

A cacophany of symphonies all composed in mathematics

a ballet of matter and energy performing cosmic acrobatics.

 

Why didn't your book tell me I was born of a supernova.

Instead demanding belief in what an ancient madman told ya.

Houses can't catch leprosy, epilepsy's not possession

and when it comes to sex what the fuck's with your obsession

with what grown men and women do in the privacy of their own home.

Why do you care where they put it? You've got problems of your own.

 

You let suffer the little children while the pedophile's protected,

the people wanted a shepard but its a wolf that was elected.

You spread disease and misery with every denial of tested science

so people remain upon their knees out of terror and compliance

so please excuse my harshness after breaking religions spell,

and if by chance your god is real, i'll save you a seat in hell.
