Name of Song: Hiding behind Religion

You’ve seen it time and time again,
God told me to do it now,
Some out of context confusing line,
To bless their evil vow.

Sometimes cloaked in ritual,
Using love to generate hate,
How dare they tell me to kill is love,
And God said that’s their fate.

Chorus
We’re all so basically good within,
To kill is not our urge,
To love is what we do inside,
And love is how we merge.

Religions are based on goodness,
They preach to be kind and love,
If it says to hate or kill them now,
That’s not from God above.

Reactive minds are confusing,
They show when things get rough,
Don’t follow those leaders who favor war,
Don’t hate and get all tough.

Chorus
We’re all so basically good within,
To kill is not our urge,
To love is what we do inside,
And love is how we merge.

______

I believe in a being’s goodness,
Tell that to your kids and friends,
When a sudden urge to hate or hurt,
Suggest a mental cleanse.

Teach all to be kind and gentle,
We’re children that just got old,
The gentle feel that we used to have,
Is really our very own soul.

Chorus
We’re all so basically good within,
To kill is not our urge,
To love is what we do inside,
And love is how we merge.
