"God Is Not A Secret" as written by Steve Taylor, Steve Taylor and Peter Furler....
You don't understand
This is not what you think it is
You don't get it, man
You want to boil it down to show biz
Your in-depth research shows:
Drop the God, emphasize the beat
I've heard that positive pop you dig
I'd rather be buried in wet concrete
Take back your free advice
I don't accept
I will not play those games
God is not a secret to be kept
God is not a secret to be kept

You don't understand
I'm not talking multiple choice
You don't get it, man
If the cross offends you, find another voice
I am not running for office here
I won't keep it purposefully vague
I've heard New Age Life-force trip
I'd rather be dipped in bubonic plague

Take back your free advice
I don't accept
I will not play those games
God is not a secret to be kept
God is not a secret to be kept

[Repeat: x2]
Faith ain't easy to understand
When a bird in the bush beats two in the hand
The truth ain't nothing you taste and hide
You gotta get up, put up, get off your backside

If we keep silent
If we mass defect
These very rocks will scream
God is not a secret to be kept
God is not a secret to be kept

And would I wash my hands again?
Would I deny my savior when
He hung inside the public square?
Did not my silence put him there?

    General CommentYour in-depth research shows - drop the God, emphasize the beat ... I’d rather be buried in wet concrete. That about says it all. It's talking about not "watering down" their message or basically turning secular, dropping their message.

    General CommentIt's about people who don't like others expressing their faith in god, and these guys are obviously annyoyed at this in the song, gods no secret to be kept, so they can talk about him and not water down messages if they want to.

    General CommentI can apply it to people in my own life, I am proud of the faith but others hate me for it, some do.

    General CommentAlso, theres a verse missed out of here

    Faith ain't easy to understand
    When a burden of bush comes to the hand
    The truth ain't nothing you taste and hide
    You gotta get up, put up, get off your backside
    Get up, put up, get off your backslide
