Your God is Lying to You
"These words are your armour"

Your God is Lying to You (feat. Rachel Best)PaperSailor

Now THIS is how you start a song! Right off the bat, you'll notice I'm not the only person singing on this track. Those powerful pipes belong to my good friend Rachel Best (she sings in a band called Alpha Signal, definitely check them out). 

When it comes to song writing, sometimes I obsess way to long over one idea, sometimes things just happen. I literally stepped out of the shower one day and the first line you hear "your God is lying to you" rang in my head, clear as a bell, exactly as you hear it. I knew exactly one person who could pull it off. I won't lie, we had to work a little bit to get there. I had to push Rachel out of her comfort zone a little bit, but having seen her perform live multiple times I knew she had it in her, and she fucking killed it.

On the surface, this probably seems like an anti-religion song. While I don't agree with religion as a concept (that's a whole other song to sing about), the track concerns people who use their belief system as justification for heinous acts. I'm a live and let live kinda guy, y'know? Believe whatever you want, just don't force it on anyone.

But c'mon... you're really gonna hide behind your scripture to excuse your racism, homophobia, transphobia, murder, paedophilia or whatever else you're into? Nope. Nope nope nope.

Scottish comedian Brian "Limmy" Limond once said "People get away with things because they have the weight of history behind them". And I couldn't agree more.

Your God is lying to you

Your God is grasping for truth

Disguising all that you do

Don't use your "good book" as proof

His order eternal

No conscience swayed

That you're ready to die for

I'll pass the spade

These words are your armour

These pages, your blade

Is this the salvation

For which you've prayed?

Your God is lying to you

Your God is grasping for truth

Disguising all that you do

Don't use your "good book" as proof

The weight of our history

It pulls at our heels

Eager for sacrifice

Your sickening zeal
