They say Jesus is doing nothing
They say evolution took his place,
There's no God that created the world
and no savior for the human race.

They say that God is powerless
He laughs aloud as we cry in pain
It's just a part of his sick, sick humor
forcing us to appreciate

You say that God is dead but your
rippin, me off.
You can't infect my mind with your vanity
You say that God is dead but your
rippin, me off
You can't infect my mind with your vanity
your rippin, me off.

They say that God doesn't even exist
We made him up just to numb our pain
They cant believe in a loving God
Who doesn't believe in atheists.

We take too much

    and tranquil fury, I find it funny that you say "Who cares what it means" when the website you're posting on is called ""

    General CommentHave you ever thought you're ripping off the world with your untrue message of Christianity?

    I used to be a Christian too, and I used to feel that fury of "They cant believe in a loving God/ Who doesn't believe in atheists!!"

    God gave us reason, not religion. Jesus of Nazareth was an amazing individual; the miraculous fabrications that have been added to his "factual accounts," however, are revolting.

    Maybe there is a god, maybe there isn't (I personally believe it is logical to conclude that this universe is the result of Intelligent Design). But to ascribe to the belief of there being such an insecure god who felt it necessary to go to the extents of institutionalizing a heaven and hell for those who do and do not "accept" or "believe" in him is pretty humorous.

    General CommentI don't think this song is a message against atheists in general so much as it against people who try
    to replace God with science. It's a rebellion against the "New Age" philosophy the world is going through.
    The world is trying to sell what is false for the truth. They're ripping us off.
    At least that's what I think they're saying. Also nobody is ruining the song by telling you what is already said in the song.

    General CommentI love this song! it has a great sound that just plain rocks!

    It's basically about those people who don't believe in God and how they're rippin' off the world with their untrue message.

    General CommentGolly gee, that's a powerful message. You know, why can't we let a good song just be that? Who cares what it means, you see, that's where all you Jesus people get it wrong. Sure, praise God, worship God, sacrifice your children to Him, whatever it is you people do. But do you really have to ruin a good song by going and saying something like "THEIR untrue message?" c'mon now...

    General CommentThe world DOES rip us off with THEIR untrue message; There is no God!

    NEWSFLASH! There IS a God! AND, mr. Fury, we OPPOSE sacrifice, that was Old Covanent! Go read a Bible or something.

    General CommentI read somewhere online that John Cooper went to a Marilyn Manson concert and Marilyn said something very offensive about Jesus' existence, and the whole crowd cheered him for it!! John was so upset that he walked out then and there.

    He then wrote this song to tell Christians to stick to their beliefs no matter what people say!
