lyrics

I believe in God because Jesus believed
I don't know much but Jesus makes me trust him
Trust him more than any politician, scientist
Or any friend I have ever known

I believe in God because it gives me strength
I believe in God because it gives me comfort
I believe because nothing in this universe
Makes sense without him

(Religion is a fiction that is past its sell-by date)

And it's a disservice so let's call it into question
It's not my duty and it's not my inclination
To forcefully forgive
Corrective rape, arranged marriage and gender subjugation
And genital mutilation

Making an observation:
Excentric divinities don't make public appearances
They only speak through the pay-per-view preachers
On the tax-exempt online church

But it's a disservice so let's call it into question
It's not my duty and it's not my inclination
To forcefully forgive
Crusades, jihad, the inquisition, and assorted holy violence
When emotions take precedence over reasoning and induction
Anti-intellectualism in the early classroom
Suicide bombers' favourite friend
Tales of false morality to sweeten insurrection

(Religion is a fiction that is past its sell-by date)
(Our progress; too slow, too little, too late)

It was helpful when we first started out
But now it has really played out its position
We're not on the fence anymore
We're not on the fence anymore
We're not on the fence
It's not creative choices you make

But it's a disservice so let's call it into question
It's not my duty and it's not my inclination
To forcefully explain
The holy trinity, the ark, the snake, and the seven-day creation
When emotion and tradition interfere with clear vision
Wasted time and effort on unanswerable questions
In too many people's favourite book
A tale of fanasy and murder without narrative cohesion
Where the hero is the villain

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
