John Lennon, Imagine

Imagine there’s no Heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too

Roger Waters, What God Wants, Part II

God wants dollars
God wants cents
God wants pounds shillings and pence
God wants guilders
God wants kroner
God wants Swiss francs
God wants French francs
God wants escudos
God wants pesetas
Don’t send lira
God don’t want small potatoes

New Model Army, Christian Militia

There’s a witch hunt coming, screaming out on its rebirth
There’s a crusade coming, Hellfires back here on earth
See the light in their eyes shine, listen to their words like swords
The Christian militia is marching now
There’s a witch hunt coming, born out of all the American fears
There’s a new purge coming, an inquisition for all of us here
Hold onto your sanity as best you can
While some Hitler claims to speak for the Son of Man
The Christian militia is marching now

Assemblage 23, Let Me Be Your Armor

The song is actually about antidepressants, but I find it fits
religion as well:

Let me take the blows
That were meant for you
Let me help you the trials
You’re going through

Let me keep you safe
From the world outside
Let me wipe away the tears
That fill your eyes

(CHORUS)

Let me keep you from
Experience you need
Let me bind you with my selfishness
And greed

Let me stifle you
Let me have control
Let me smother
Every aspect of your soul

H.F. Thiéfaine, La nostalgie de dieu

On peut donc affirmer sans offenser son archevêque
Que Dieu a la gueule et l’aspect d’un australopithèque
Dieu est un drôle de mec
Un australopithèque
Oui mais on l’aime quand même
Dieu est amour toujours
Dieu est amour
Et Jésus change le beurre en vaseline
Dieu est in

Deus ex machina
Deus ex Testa Rossa
Deus ex Lamborghini
Deus ex Maserati
Deus ex Aston Martin
Deus ex machine
Deus sex machine
God il sex machine
God gode! God gode!

One can thus affirm without offending the archbishop
That God looks like an australopithecine
God’s a funny kind of guy
An australopithecine
Yeah, but we like him anyway
God is love always
God is love
And Jesus turns butter into vaseline
God is in

Deus ex machina
Deus ex Testa Rossa
Deus ex Lamborghini
Deus ex Maserati
Deus ex Aston Martin
Deus ex machine
Deus sex machine
God il sex machine
God dildo! God dildo!

Renaud, Pourquoi d’abord

– Mais pourquoi est-c’que les curés,
D’abord, tu leur en veux ?
C’est quand même un peu grâce à eux,
Qu’on a un Bon Dieu.

– Eh ! Ton Bon Dieu il est mort
Avec Jésus sur la croix,
Ils l’ont crucifié avec trois punaises,
Et pi y s’est barré !

– So anyway, what’s your
beef with priests, anyway?
After all, it’s kinda thanks to them
that we’ve got a God.

– Hey, your God is dead
along with Jesus on the cross.
They crucified him with three thumbtacks
and then he buggered off!

Sarcloret, Dieu est une magouille de l’opposition

(Subtitled “The Lord is my German shepherd, I shall not want”)
(lyrics)

Et si on est à son image,
Alors bonjour le bricolage
Je le vois mal avec des boutons
Ou un cancer, ou des roustons
Et si je suis beau comme un dieu
Pourquoi je suis tout seul dans mon pieu
Je vous ai dit mon opinion
Dieu est une magouille de l’opposition
And if we’re made in his image,
Musta been slapped together in a hurry.
I can’t quite see him with acne,
Or cancer, or balls.
And if I’m as handsome as a god,
Why am I alone in bed?
I’ve told you my opinion
God is a dirty trick by the opposition

    Rush, “The Way The Wind Blows”, Snakes and Arrows, 2007

    Now it’s come to this
    It’s like we’re back in the Dark Ages
    From the Middle East to the Middle West
    It’s a world of superstition

    Now it’s come to this
    Wide-eyed armies of the faithful
    From the Middle East to the Middle West
    Pray, and pass the ammunition

    So many people think that way
    You gotta watch what you say
    To them and them, and others too
    Who don’t seem to see to things the way you do
