lyrics

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!
