"The Angel Wars" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I won't pray here
Or bow my head
I won't praise your name
I won't kneel down

I won't pray to you
On this side of sane (Oh Lord)
I won't pray to you
On this side of hell (Father)
I won't pray to you
On this side of heaven again

I don't need faith
Forgiveness of sin
I don't need saving
I don't need lies

I don't believe
In the angel wars (Oh Lord)
I don't believe
In the virgin birth (Father)
I don't believe
In the cross on the hill (Jesus)
I don't believe
In the kindness of God to man

I'll drive a stake
Through the black of your heart (Oh Lord)
I'll pull down your temples
And burn every word (Father)
I'll kill all the angels
That show me 'The Light' (Jesus)
I'll drift into darkness
And tear out the soul of God

    General CommentClearly, someone has lost his religion, and more demonstratively than Michael Stipe ever did.
    This song is good example of the entire "Exile" album, although "Dead Heaven is a very close second for being best song on the album.

    If my memory serves me (and it often does not) Gary Numan declared himself an atheist shortly before this albums' release.

    General CommentThis song is incredible. It's probably my favourite from the Exile album. The beat is slick, the guitar is dramatic, and that last verse is one of the angriest things I've ever heard.

    General CommentFirst of all, a true atheist would never speak so deep about religion why to speak about something that does not exist? Numan is a great artist and seeing the disgraces of world, he expresses his feelings trying to explain himself why God let this happen and this is the motive of many of his songs, he has deep knowledge of Christian religion, he say he does not believe but there is something inside of him, a spiritual fact and his lyrics are linked to that
