An Atheists Song

After the video I included the lyrics

I ain’t afraid
I ain’t afraid
I ain’t afraid

I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your churches
I ain’t afraid of your temples
I ain’t afraid of your praying
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

Rise up to your higher power
Free up from fear, it will devour you
Watch out for the ego of the hour
The ones who say they know it
Are the ones who will impose it on you

I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your churches
I ain’t afraid of your temples
I ain’t afraid of your praying
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

Rise up, and find a higher story
Free up from the gods of war and glory
Watch out for the threats of purgatory
The spirit of the wind won’t make a killing off of sin and Satan

I ain’t afraid of your Bible
I ain’t afraid of your Torah
I ain’t afraid of your Koran
Don’t let the letter of the law
Obscure the spirit of the your love–it’s killing us

I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your churches
I ain’t afraid of your temples
I ain’t afraid of your praying
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your Money
I ain’t afraid of your Culture
I ain’t afraid of your Choices
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your Sunday
I ain’t afraid of your Spirit
I ain’t afraid of your Teachers
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your Sabbath
I ain’t afraid of your Borders
I ain’t afraid of your Dances
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your Children
I ain’t afraid of your Music
I ain’t afraid of your Stories
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God

I ain’t afraid
