"Eat Your Dog" as written by and Greg Graffin....
Weak and sick, dying in the sand, no such thing as a promised land.
Don't lose faith in a better life--reincarnation, poor excuse.
You're dying you assholes, your religion can't help you now.
Dying and starving in the fields you used to plow.
Rotting bones in your barren fields.
Worshiped creature's supposed to heal.
He won't save you and he won't save me. See what you want to see.
Hindu religion in the mind of a working Joe,
Starving and dying in the fields you used to know.
You're tied and bound to a god's useless advice.
Bloated stomachs from aching diseases hold back the fight.
In the end you'll return once more to die again.
Go on 'til you can't no more in non-eternal sin.

    General CommentThe reason he mentions dog is that it's god spelled backwards. Quite obvious if you look at the rest of the lyrics, which are all about religion and how it won't help you from starving and dying.

    General Commentthey speak the truth. scientfic fact > god. anyone who is religious is just a neurotic, weak minded individual who uses religion as a crutch to compensate their own shitty existances.

    General CommentIt's about relying on nothing but yourself when your world has turned into a shithole because it's not going to do a goddamn thing. You have to be the one to get off your ass and do something about it.
