Track Name: Your Particular Deity
I don't care for imaginary beings
I'm not scared of goblins or demons,
Gods and elves - never seem to show themselves
So why should I believe in them?

There have been hundreds and thousands of gods
Each one sincerely revered
You say that yours is the only true way
And all the others are weird

Why your particular deity, from the Middle East, in the Iron Age?
Your particular deity, from the Middle East, in the Iron Age?

I don’t care for imaginary beings
I’m not scared of goblins or demons
Gods and elves - never seem to show themselves
So why should I believe in them?

Two thousand years ago, ignorance reigned
Peasants and even the king
All thought that magical powers were real
They would believe anything, like

...Your particular deity, from the Middle East, in the Iron Age.
Your particular deity, from the Middle East, in the Iron Age.

Based on the writings of primitive minds
You think that I’ll fall in line
But if I try to use reason and rhyme
I’ll burn in Hell for all time!
Track Name: Break Free
You took my life and you took my time with your lying
And you led me on with your promises kept me trying
You put your guilt on me and
From Day One lied to me and
I was taken in

Break Free...

You filled my mind with your made-up worlds of illusion
And you took control of my pleasures with your delusion
You gave me love with one hand
The other threatened me, and
I see through you now

Break Free...
Track Name: Dream in Green
Do you see what I see
Do you feel what I feel?
When you look at the world
That we share?

And if all that you do
slips away in between
If you must live in dreams
Dream in green

Do you dream of a time
When your kingdom will come
And do you wreck your world
While you wait?

Do you go through the day
Looking back where you've been
If you must live in dreams
Dream in green

When you find you're awake
Can you open your eyes?
And d'you see, it's all there?
It's in reach

Really see, it's for you
It's a dot, pale and blue
If you must live in dreams
Dream in green
Track Name: Might Don't Make Right
Do you follow someone because they're strong?
Even if they do what's wrong?

Might don't make right - or not in my book anyway
Might don't make right - But I see bullies everyday
You can preach at me behind your pulpit
But let's take a look at the Principal Culprit

God killed quite a lot of people in the flood
He murdered nearly everybody in the flood
Always take your anorak, when you're dealing with a genocidal maniac

He wiped out all the little children in the flood
He destroyed tiny tots and toddlers in the flood
The little babies splashed around
It took some time - before they drowned

And God slew all the little puppies in the flood
Would have strangled all the fishies if he could
Maybe I'm a simple fool, for pointing out that this is cruel

It seems people then were getting on his nerves
So he did to everyone what they deserved
So next time someone upsets you,
Will you put them in a bag and drown them too?

I hope all the kids in Sunday School are taught
Justice means that He will soon appear in court
Since he wiped out most of every phylum
We've a place for him in a criminal asylum
So please ensure you have your brolly
If your invisible friend is off his trolley

Might don't make right - at least in my book anyway
Might don't make right - But that's how bullies like to play

Do you follow someone because they're strong?
Even if they do what's wrong?
If you're on your knees to a mafia boss
It's because you don't wanna make him cross
So why do you bow down to him
Is it because you cannot swim?
Track Name: Centuries
You open your eyes
And see, here we are,
Just look where we started
We've all come so far

But all of their labours
The tears and their pain
We take them for granted
Forget their names
Seems a shame

The milllions of centuries of this world
And all of the wonders, the things we have learned
And now the delusions drag us back to the Dark Age.

Centuries, thought and deeds, Centuries

They say that in each town
A torch of truth shines
The teacher will bear it
And brighten our minds

But here comes the priest now
To blow out the light
He's back in the darkness
With fables and lies
And Reason cries

In all of the centuries as we grow
The lessons are hard, but soon we will know
That only art, science, love and reason
Have meaning

Centuries, Thought and deeds, Centuries
