Ain't Gonna Pass


This song was written as a response to all the people who kill people in the name of gods who reportedly say that killing people is wrong.

...
I'm not a very godly guy.
It's not complicated, I'll tell you why
When you raise your eyes point to the sky
to a deity you glorify

With my belief in science,
I can't be in compliance
With some holy alliance
killing in the name of god

To me, all these prophets
are just the same
Moses, Jesus,
then Mohamed came
Loaves and fishes, sermon on the mount
Don't want war on any account.
No killing in the name of god.

Then they all got together
down in Palestine
saying this ain't yours,
this land is mine.
Underneath
your fig and vine,
killing in the name of god

Make a ploughshare from a sword.
Isaiah said, "Thus saith the Lord
From a spear, go make a pruning hook
Don't tell me that you mistook
It for a missile or a drone
And covet your neighbor's oil for your own
and go killing in the name of god.

What god does Obama kill in the name of ?
It sure ain't Christian, that, Jesus is sure of
What god is on Netanyahu's side
While he carries out his genocide?
And Isis using Mohamed's name
is just playing the Barack and Bibi game
Why is it they all proclaim
to kill in the name of god?

It really is quite foolish,
be ye Muslim, Christian, Jewish
Be ye Buddhist, Sikh or Hindu,
you know it's a sin to
And I don't mind your praying,
All I am is saying
Stop killing in the name of god.

Make a ploughshare from a sword.
Isaiah said, "Thus saith the Lord
From a spear, go make a pruning hook
Don't tell me that you mistook
It for a missile or a drone
And covet your neighbor's oil for your own
Stop killing in the name of god ...
