"No God" as written by Michael Schleibaum, Paul Wayne Burnette, Michael Carrigan Theobald, John Henry and Ryan Littlefield Parrish....
There's no salvation in a world where you worship your reflection.
And no redemption for a life of servitude.
You bow and you heed on hallowed command.
Your holy land is all rot and reeking.

It's a safe place.
A hollow escape.
A palace of concrete and glass.
Keep waiting, keep waiting for...

No god to release you.
No god to make you fall to your knees.

There's blood on these pages and a war inside your head and with yourself.
Through the ages through every form of hell.

It's a safe place.
A hollow escape.
A palace of concrete and glass.
Keep waiting, keep waiting for...

No god to consume you.
No god to bear your burden.
No god to use you.
No god, no, it's all an illusion.

A usurper of life.
It'll bleed every last drop.
And it'll suck all the breath out of you.
And leave you forsaken.

There's no god to release you.
There's no god to make you fall down to your knees.
There's no god to consume you.
There's no god to bear your burdens.
There's no god, no, it's all an illusion.

    General CommentThe lyrics submitted on this site are incorrect. Kinda funny actually, but horribly wrong. Here are the correct lyrics.


    There's no salvation
    In a world where you worship you're reflection
    And no redemption for a life of servitude
    You bow and you heed
    On hallowed command
    Your holy land is all rot and reeking
    It's a safe place
    A hollow escape
    A palace of concrete and glass
    Keep waiting, keep waiting for

    No god to release you
    No god to make you fall to your knees

    There's blood on these pages
    And a war inside your head and with yourself
    Through the ages through every form of hell
    It's a safe place
    A hollow escape
    A palace of concrete and glass
    Keep waiting, keep waiting for

    No god To consume you
    No god To bear your burden
    No god To use you
    No god no it's all an illusion

    A usurper of life
    It'll bleed every last drop And it'll suck all the breath out of you
    And leave you forsaken

    There's no god to release you
    There's no god to make you fall down to your knees
    There's no god to consume you
    There's no god To bear your burdens
    There's no god no it's all an illusion.

    General CommentThis song is a complete joke lyrically. Musically, very good indeed but the substance is severely lacking. The entire song commits the logical fallacy of begging the question, that is, assuming that what you are trying to prove to be true is already true.

    In case Darkest Hour wasn't aware, the existence of God is a heavily debated topic and there is certainly no concrete proof on either side. This song assumes that God doesn't exist and goes from there. There is nothing substantial in the song adding to the argument, just some biased claims made by the lyricist.

    If the song is viewed from the perspective of people who call themselves Christians but are instead self seeking and only want money and power, I could see how the lyrics could be somewhat more accurate. Christianity is not about these things but when someone like Joel Osteen runs the largest church in America I can certainly see how that image is maintained.

    I love this band. They make some fantastic music. However, they should choose the subject material of their songs a little more carefully, this is biting off much more than they can chew.
