The Atheist Tabernacle Choir Lyrics

If you don't believe in God, clap your hands!
If you don't trust the lord, clap your hands!
if you reject the possibility of a deity, then clap your hands!
And join the Atheist Tabernacle Choir!

We're not going to cross that... Jordan River!
It don't even exist, that...Jordan River!
To be honest, it's an outmoded religious metaphor,
That Jordan river, yes
We're the Atheist Tabernacle Choir!

Sing six feet deep, that's where I'm goin'
Six feet deep, no after-livin'
Six feet deep, yup it's depressin'

We're not going to reach the...Promised land!
There's no such thing as the....Promised land!
It's a cynical notion dreamed up by priests in collaboration with landed interests in order to subjugate the masses, that...Promised Land!
It's the Atheist Tabernacle Choir!

Sing, in a wooden box! That's where I'm headin'!
A wooden box! Forever deaden!
A wooden box! No resurrectin'!
A wooden box! Yep, it's depressing

If you believe in nothing, sing out loud!
If you think it's a cobblers, sing out loud!
If you find the whole idea of personal freedom circumscribed by the seemingly-arbitrary activities of a supreme being, then! ...sing out loud!
(And join the Church of England!)
Or the Atheist Tabernacle Choir....

Not Halleuluah!
Don't praise the lord!
