In case you haven't heard it, head over to 'The Podcast' page to hear our one day hip hop project! It started out as a joke but we're actually relatively proud of the lyrics and how not pathetic the song came out after about 5 hours of writing, recording (which included many attempts because we are very obviously not rappers) and editing (NO AUTO TUNE NEEDED!) Anyway, the lyrics are also on the post of the song itself on 'The Podcast' page, but just in case you heard it on iTunes where you wont find the lyrics, here they are!
"There's No Such Thing as Sin"
Say, “Hello” to the Awe, Really Dudes
Not just the Podcast but we spit bars, too.
Come into the Awe, Really Pod and tell me what you think about God.
We philosophize, analyze, ridicule and criticize
Every idea that don't make sense just cause you rationalize
And make yourself believe, that ain't good enough for me
Or my boy Conover, aka Andy Handsman, that's my co-host, my dude, my right hand man.
Awe, Really Dudes, he and I – coming up and taking over.
We just been getting started, lion-hearted making gold
Posting up at Reason Rally with a Minion as the mascot
Let the people know that what they learned in class got
Another side to take a look at, they gettin' so shook that
Everything they believe could be a complete fabrication.
Everything we see is in the mind, confabulation,
There are people at the top working, precise calculation
To rig your education, give you a clear misinterpretation
And perpetuate absolute saturation
Of willful abdication of your freedom and autonomy,
All the while deceiving you that you and I are free.
You can say whatever you think, but freedom is an illusion
Just like free will and enforcing the Constitution.
They want to censor our words, but speech is power
So we stand up and shout, we're gonna do this now.
Leave behind a legacy so the kids will look up to me,
Not for the money or fame, but cause we're gonna affect real change
In the mindset of society and in the way the game is played
Cause this shit ain't working, let's try to go another route.
Just talk about the problem so we can go ahead and figure it out.
How to think, what to say, and what the fuck can we do
To fix all the problems that we just seem to get used to
I say, “No way!” “No more!” It's time for all that to end
I'm sick of wondering when we can find a peaceful end
To all the wars and horrors around the world every day.
I don't have all the right answers, but I can tell you what's wrong:
Believing in God, spreading hate, and poisoning the world we live on.
Fuck faith, demand evidence, think critically
You can be moral and spiritual without the help of divinity
Everything you need is packed deeply within.
All that other shit is noise, there's no such thing as 'sin.'
Life comes with enough burdens, don't add the Cross, it's full
Believe nothing, except that anything is possible.
