There are a lot of religious songs out there, just far too many, but very few explicitly godless songs. The only one I've heard is Imagine by John Lennon.

I thought maybe we can all get together & write a few godless song lyrics.

"Heaven's A Lie" by Lacuna Coil

 

Oh no,
here it is again
I need to know
when I will fall in decay

Something wrong
with every plan of my life
I didn't really notice that you've been here

Dolefully desired
Destiny of a lie

Set me free
your heaven's a lie
set me free with your love
set me free, yeah

Oh no,
here it is again
I need to know
why did I choose to betray you

Something wrong
with all the plans of my life
I didn't realize that you've been here

Dolefully desired
Destiny of a lie

Set me free
your heaven's a lie
set me free with your love
set me free, yeah

Set me free
your heaven's a lie
set me free with your love
set me free, yeah

Dolefully desired

Set me free
your heaven's a lie
set me free with your love
set me free, yeah

Set me free
your heaven's a lie
set me free with your love
set me free, yeah

Set me free
your heaven's a lie
set me free with your love
set me free, yeah

i think akshay's intent was that you create your own lyrics, either a fragment or a whole or even an expansion on original lyrics that someone else had already posted

 

Zappa has more than a few anti-"God" or anti-religion songs.  My favorite:

 

Frank Zappa - Dumb All Over

Whoever we are, wherever we're from,
We shoulda noticed by now our behaviour is dumb 
And if our chances expect to improve,
It's gonna take a lot more than tryin' to remove
The other race or the other whatever
From the face of the planet altogether
 
They call it "The Earth" which is a dumb kinda name,
But they named it right 'cause we behave the same; 
We are dumb all over 
Dumb all over, yes we are,
Dumb all over, near and far,
Dumb all over, black 'n white,
People, we is not wrapped tight
 
Nerds on the left, nerds on the right 
Religious fanatics on the air every night,
Sayin' the bible tells the story
And makes the details sound real gory
'Bout what to do if the geeks over there
Don't believe in the book we got over here 
You can't run a race without no feet 
And pretty soon there won't be no street
for dummies to jog on
or doggies to dog on 
Religious fanatics
can make it be all gone 
I mean it won't blow up and disappear,
It'll just look ugly for a thousand years!
 
You can't run a country by a book of religion 
Not by a heap or a lump or a smidgeon
Of foolish rules of ancient date,
Designed to make you all feel great
While you fold, spindle and mutilate
Those unbelievers from a neighbouring state

Two arms, two arms, hooray! That's great,
Two legs ain't bad unless there's a crate
They ship the parts to mama in 
For souvenirs: two ears (Get down) 
Not his, not hers but what the hey 
The good book says, "It's gotta be that way" 
But their book says, "Revenge the crusades" 
With whips 'n chains and hand grenades 
Two arms, two arms 
Have another and another 
Our God says, "There ain't no other" 
Our God says, "It's all ok" 
Our God says "This is the way" 
It says in the book, "Burn and destroy 
 
"Repent and redeem and revenge and deploy
And rumble thee forth to the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side" 
'Cause they don't go for what's in the book
And that makes 'em bad 
So verily we must choppeth them up
And stompeth them down 
Or rent a nice French bomb
To poof them out of existence
While leaving their real estate just where we need it
To use again for temples in which to praise our God,
'Cause he can really take care of business 
 
And when his humble TV servant with humble white hair and humble glasses and a nice brown suit and maybe a blonde wife who takes phone calls, tells us our God says it's ok to do this stuff, then we gotta do it. 'Cause if we don't do it we ain't "Gwine up to hebbin" 
Depending on which book you're using at the time 
"Can't use theirs, it don't work, it's all lies, gotta use mine"
Ain't that right? 
That's what they say 
Every night, everyday 
 
Hey, we can't really be dumb if we're just following god's orders 
Well let's get serious, God knows what he's doin' 
He wrote this book here and the book says, "He made us all to be just like him" 
So, if we're dumb, then God is dumb
and maybe even a little ugly on the side 
 
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side 
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side 
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side 
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side

No you goof balls. Akshay wants us to come up with our own lyrics. But as far as all this copy write stuff - I am a goof ball - it's too hard for me to figure out.

 

Here is my humble contribution: 

 

Oh man, this is harder than I thought it would be. Okay, that is not lyrics, just what I am thinking right now.

 

Okay, here are some lyrics:

 

you and me

the way we want to be

you and me

when will we be free

 

 

 

Hey flower, nice lyrics :)

I'm stealing this to write a love song :P

Just kidding

 


you and me

the way we want to be

you and me

when will we be free

you and me

together all the way

you and me

will keep god at bay

 

we don't need an imaginary friend to be happy

as long as I've got you I'll be a happy chappy.

 

Not that good, morning coffee still not taken its effect yet.

Okay well I'm worn out, but this is what I have so far. Might work on it some more when I get proper sleep :P

 

 

You bitch and whine and moan about how the world is so alone,
How we need salvation from our trepidations and how there simply is no hope,
You preach a love that you can’t show, and tell us what you think you know,
You talk and talk and talk some more, but have you ever stopped to listen before?

We know the reasons behind your lies, we know your truth is a disguise to hide the hate you can’t control, where is the love you claim to know?

Life goes on in this forsaken earth; prayers go out but don’t give birth to anything that makes real sense, except blind belief and false repentance.
Stop giving me reasons to change my views, stop pretending that your beliefs are new.
We’ve done this song and dance before, your logic is flawed and we seek to know more

We know the reasons behind your lies, we know your truth is a disguise to hide the hate you can’t control, where is the love you claim to know?

The circles you walk in drive the rest of us crazy, your religion is just an excuse to be lazy.
Do your own research, read more than one book; this world has so much to offer, if only you’d look.
You preach about love with anger and hate, when will you realize we have the same fate?

 

 

 

Stellar :) I would quote a favorite line, but I'd have to quote the whole thing.
haha, thanks!

nice work. Specially this part - 

Life goes on in this forsaken earth; prayers go out but don’t give birth to anything that makes real sense, except blind belief and false repentance.

Def Jam Poetry. :P

Campfire song style!

 

 

Hey, hey!

I don't pray!

I don't live my life that way!

 

Hey, hey!

I don't pray!

I like to get things done.

 

If my roof flys off in a midnight wind,

I know it's not the rapture begin.

You won't find me on bended knees

unless I'm on a shingling spree

 

Hey, hey!

I don't pray!

I don't live my life that way!

 

Hey, hey!

I don't pray!

I like to get things done.

 

Soup kitchens need hands and funds and friends

if you want to really see poverty end.

A cross can't handle a ladel too great;

if you wait too long you'll be too late.

 

Hey, hey!

I don't pray!

I don't live my life that way!

 

Hey, hey!

I don't pray!

I like to get things done.

 

 

 

 

Ok, I can't think of anything else to add to it right now. Feel free to stick other stuff on.
