I Ain't Afraid

From the album Ebenezer's Make Over Buy Now

by Holly Near

- Holly Near hits the target on religion

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

Watch out for the ego of the hour

The ones who say they know it

And the ones who will impose it on you

 

Rise up, 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

 

Repeat verse one
