lyrics

My friend, here's some highlights from this January
The flow of the prophecies of gold stopped
There's been some Bible shuffle, but no real Bible flight
There's been a snowball fight over the future of the Earth
So, guys, let's just try to hang on 'til the salsa stops

This just in: Open season for wasted votes
Wasted voices, wasted reason, wasted life
The last vestiges of sense and hope hang in the balance
And their last champions left town this morning

(All right, here we go...)

Stuck in the hands of an angry god
When the stars died for you
Let the wonders of our universe be reintroduced
Escape the hands of this displaced god
Our liberation and salvation
Burning bright
Our exit and exstacy

It was the first chill on the very first dawn
This scheme of life and death
The necessary path of inevitability
We are what we are
Nothing less, nothing more, nothing sacred
No truth sacrosanct
Your curiosity
Never knowing
Always learning

Stuck in the hands of an angry god
When the stars died for you
Let the wonders of our universe be reintroduced
Escape the hands of this displaced god
Our liberation and salvation
Burning bright
Our exit and exstacy

Science - Like religion but real
Just like religion but real
Science - Like religion without the faith
Religion is a fiction that is past its sell-by date

The consoling power of the ultimate fantasy
Mark a change and embrace the possibility
Of infinite prospects

Falsehoods can be consoling, but that don't make them true
Look again, look at our home
That's us and that's all there is
Everething we know, everything we love
It's not "why" but "how"
Don't sack the future and hold on to the rot

Hold onto what we've got
In the hands of an angry god
When the stars died for you
Let the wonders of our universe be reintroduced
Escape the hands of this disgraced god
Our liberation and salvation
Burning bright
Our exit and exstacy

Stuck in the hands of an angry god
The stars died for you
The wonders of life
Escape the hands of this displaced god
Our liberation and salvation
Burning bright
The wonders of life

Science - Like religion but real
Just like religion but real
Science - Like religion without the faith
Religion is a fiction that is past its sell-by date

Science - Like religion but real
Just like religion but real
Science - Like religion without the faith
Religion is a fiction that is past its sell-by date

about

a truth called nothing Stockholm, Sweden

The European atheist art-rock band, a truth called nothing, is made up of contrasts: they combine hi-i with lo-fi, death with joy. They have been active since the new millenium began, collaborating heavily with the european movement to legalize assisted suicide, as well as emerging at the forefront of the online phenomenon "Borgarkrossarna" ("The Bourgeois Breakers"). ... more
