Shelley Segal's "Saved"

The girl can sing. And push back against false ideas.

The forthcoming album is called An Atheist Album. This song is available on Amazon. Via PZ. Lyrics are below the fold:

Say that i need to be saved
Say with me the devils got his way
I want to know how when you are praying
And when you are doomsdaying
How you think you know that someone is listening to what you are saying

CHORUS
So you think that you
Can tell us how to live our lives
Never questioning the source from which your moral code derives
You think that suffering is part of some great plan that’s been devised
I wonder, I wonder
When we’ll be rid of your lies

Say I need to hear the truth
A sales-pitch of eternal life and eternal youth
All these blessings you are bestowing
Upon the one you say is all-knowing
Are they really deserved if He is sending me where you say I am going?

CHORUS
So you think that you
Can tell us how to live our lives
Never questioning the source from which your moral code derives
You think that suffering is part of some great plan that’s been devised
I wonder, I wonder, I wonder, I wonder

What will it take for you
To start opening your eyes
To start questioning the bullshit everyone around you buys
You think it’s any of your business what goes on between my thighs?
I wonder, I wonder,
When we’ll be rid of your lies

    Always good to see another rational person kicking arse in a cool way, even better when they’re an Australian!

    Very excellent. In particular, I almost ruined my keyboard when she said, “You think it’s any of your business what goes on between my thighs?” – Game. Set. Match. :)
