ALL Religions Lie My Friend
God watches every sparrow fall
And every bomb fly by
Then why does slow sweet cancer call
Those innocent of nearly all
To torment until they die?
All religions lie my friend, all religions lie
Was it God who made the Kalashnikov
And brought death down from the sky
And made for Hitler his ranting voice
And gave planes for Bin Laden to fly?
The shepherds gather up their flocks
And hand out rifles, bombs and rocks
One hand on their wallets, the other on their cocks
They march to do or die
And God so wise to give free will
To us to rape and steal and kill
To suicide bombers addled with lies
As fragments of bodies spatter the skies
I ask you now and once again
Who will shoulder the fucking blame?
Who will succour those left behind
By the lies of religion, the light of the blind
Oh all religions lie my friend, all religions lie.
Well God he moves in mysterious ways
He loves us all, except for gays
Their Books they say he made us all –
And in those Books you hear the call
To stone them dead with cock and ball
– well, bugger you! And leave the stage! –
If he made me in his own image
Then tell me why I so often cry
That all religions lie my friend, all religions lie.
And listen well to the wily spell
Of pastors priests and imams who
Swear by God a burning hell
That waits for me and you and you
If you try to die without their tune
Which runs a bit like this:
“Unless you sing just MY old song
“You’ll never enter bliss.”
But all religions lie my friend,
And I can tell you this:
If all but one is very wrong
I’d rather sing just my own song
And blast them with a kiss!
Oh they also tell some truths my friend
They’ll state some things your mind to bend
They’ll make you laugh
And rock or roll
And then they’ll simply steal your soul
And milk you till you die….
Don’t bother trying to tell them all
They’ve lies for every beck and call
They twist the world in every way
And fall on Faith to which they pray
Which saves from truth and keeps Logic away
And lets them live and die
All religions lie my friend, all religions lie.
