RE: Atheist new song?
After two careful listens, it's a very-vague-about-topic anthem about standing up and refusing to be silent about <blank> issue. The early verses about church are mostly about him being brought up to be obedient and not making waves, rather than a condemnation of church or organized religion or the creeds or faith in general.

Checking the artist's webpage, I came across this:

Quote:Since his arrival in Nashville, he has released three records, had five songs top the Christian charts, received two Dove nominations, worked with legendary producers including Brown Bannister, Mark Hammond, Marshall Altman, Charlie Peacock, and Mark Miller. He’s shared the stage with the best of CCM artists from Steven Curtis Chapman and Third Day to Toby Mac.
(Bold emphasis mine.)

No nuclear fallout about him publicly deconverting that I could find in 3 minutes of googling.

So while the song can be interpreted and even appropriated for atheism, I highly doubt that is how it is intended. Rather, the vagueness of subject (the song is more about feelings of conviction and determination, rather than the subject of those emotions) makes it inviting for anyone who cares about ANY issue to project their own beliefs and attitudes into it.

Also, don't be silly. Atheists don't have no songs.

There shouldn't be an atheist anthem. No two atheists think alike nor like the same kind of music. An anthem atheist song is too conforming. Just my opinion.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

That's a double negative, so... atheists do have songs Smile

WOW~ Amazing song. I will pirate that righ...ops...too late..anyway.

Adding that one to my list of awesome songs. Going right along with Rational warriors albums and Frank Turners.

Personally, I don't really care what the song is about per se. Its just a really good song. I appriciate good music no matter where it comes from.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

Rise up, and see /find/ know/ hear 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
