There are preachers out there who preach anti-science, know nothing nonsense. Esp. in the USA, there are a lot of Christian fundamentalists who spread their dark age morality, patriarchy, and oppression all over, and do it UNCHALLENGED.
This song is about those truly anti-social criminals, and about confronting them when we see them.
If you see them, say something. Don't allow them to walk by and get away with it. They have an impact on people's thinking and actions. Get in their face. Tell them to read a science book. Tell them we don't want their traditional morality, we want one that is about breaking the chains they have been justifying for so long.
Tell them to go with their god, and leave this world to us.
(P.S. even though he was fucking religious, Malcolm was a GOOD example of a person who used a very rigorous scientific method and changed a lot, he was not dogmatic, and put his religion aside a great deal. To him if you "god" was not helping you get free it wasn't worth shit.)
"Brothers and Sisters, Friends, and I see some enemies."
Morally Depraved Preachers
Morality we need, but one that sets us free.
Illusions, won’t help us break oppressive chains.
NO I WON’T take your pamphlet your proselytizing has consequences
Off this planet? You want to get? I’ll oblige, I'll let me blow your mind.
No excuses. You done enough. Precious planet. JUST LEAVE IT TO US!
No saviors. Thinkers needed. You're incapable.
SO JUST LEAVE IT TO US!
Hymens busted? Misogynistic humans? Your books kill women.
Stoned kids? Salted wives? Encourage questions!
Give to Caesar? Kosher weenies? They're happy with our submission.
No life after death. But if you wanna check, what the heck, GO WITH YOUR GOD
It's a mess. We'll stay behind. We'll fix it up. JUST LEAVE IT TO US
Without gods prosper together. Common, conscious future. LEAVE IT TO US
Preaching fundies' flyers. Aren't helping our world grow. SOOOOOO, LEAVE IT TO US!
40 virgins. Milk and honey. Go with your God!
Hypocrites, King of Kings is fucking waiting.
You can’t be better world building preparing to leave here.
Science, not myths. Solutions, not sins.
Forward, Together, Struggling, CRITICALLY!
