Voltaire y Epica cantan mi visión sobre la religión mal utilizada–

Hace ya algo más de un año que me aficioné a un músico y cantautor llamado “Voltaire”.

Es bastante popular en ambientes góticos de EEUU.  Además de músico, animador, dibujante de cómics y profesor en la  School of Visual Arts in New York.

Según él, sus influencias musicales  son:  Rasputina, Morrissey, Tom Waits, Cab Calloway y and Danny Elfman.  Tiene un estilo de letras muy irónicas como veréis en este ejemplo.

Os pongo la letra original y un enlace para que la oigais.

“God Thinks”

“God thinks all blacks are obsolete farm equipment
God thinks the Jews killed his son and must be punished
God thinks the white man is Satan
God, they know what God thinks

God thinks we should all convert to Judaism
God thinks we must all be Christians and
God thinks we should all embrace Islam
God thinks the only true religion is Hinduism

And I
I know what God thinks
God thinks you’re a waste of flesh
God prefers an Atheist

God God
God thinks all people like you are hateful
God thinks all people like you are an embarrassment to creation
self-righteous, judgmental, first to throw a stone
and using His name for your own protection

God thinks the sun revolves around the Earth
God thinks there was something very wrong with Copernicus
God thinks abortion is murder and
God thinks everything that science gave us is wrong
God thinks women deserve it
God thinks AIDS is a form of punishment

I hate people who blame the Devil for their own shortcomings and
I hate people who thank God when things go right

And I
I know what God thinks
God thinks you’re an idiot
God prefers a heretic

God God
God thinks all people like you are hateful
God thinks all people like you are an embarrassment to creation
self-righteous, judgmental, first to throw the stone
and using His name for your own agenda

God is a liberal
God is a democrat
God wants you to vote republican
never trust a man who puts his words in the mouth of god
and says it’s absolute truth
its lies and it smells like death
its all in a day’s work taking money from the poor
Why do you think that God would need your dirty money
if He wants to start a holy war?

self-righteous, judgmental, first to throw a stone
and using His name for your own protection

God thinks puppies need to die and
God thinks babies need to drown
‘cause God is neither good nor bad
God is you and me
God is Everything”

Y ahora una de EPICA

Soy fan desde hace  años de esta canción y sigue siendo una de mis canciones favoritas en general. También habla de la mentira de la religión y de su ulización instrumental  como arma de los poderosos para sus propios fines y generadora de violencia (introducen un fragmento de Tony Blair sobre los atentados del 11 S)

Se trata de

FAÇADE OF REALITY”

“Sanguis meus tibi non iam perbibendus sit

Macula aeterintatis
Numquam detergenda
Quisnam surget et deteget
Imaginem veritates?

People created religious inventions
To give their lives a glimmer of hope
And to ease their fear of dying
And people created religious intentions
Only to feel superior and to have a license to kill

Our desire to die is stronger
Than all your desire for life
There is no getting away from it now
Only true faith survives

People created religious inventions
To give their lives a glimmer of hope
And to ease their fear of dying
And people created religious ascensions
To subject the others and to enslave, just to further enrich themselves

It doesn’t matter where we die
It doesn’t matter that you cry
We will take you with us

A disgrace on the beyond

O servator, sempiterne
Te grati coluimus, Odor atrox quo nons superfundis intolerabilis est

Deceive yourself by yielding
to soft words that cause no pain
Enrich yourself with different views
Learned without disdain

A disgrace on the beyond
That can never be undone
Who shall rise and unveil
The Facade of Reality?

Is there still room for new dents in old wrecks?
A disgrace on the beyond that can never be undone
Deceive yourself by yielding to soft words
Enrich yourself by making up your own mind

Sanguis meus tibi non iam perbibendus sit”

Podéis oirla y verlos en el video de la grabación con los violinistas, coros etc. Una gozada :)

Y otra más de EPICA  

“Cry for the moon”

“Follow your common sense
You cannot hide yourself
behind a fairytale forever and ever
Only by revealing the hole truth can we disclose
The soul of this bulwark forever and ever
Forever and ever

Indoctrinated minds so very often
Contain sick thoughts
And commit most of the evil they preach against

Don�t try to convince me with messages from God
You accuse us of sins committed by yourselves
It�s easy to condemn without looking in the mirror
Behind the scenes opens reality

Eternal silence cries out for justice
Forgiveness is not for sale
Nor is the will to forget

Virginity has been stolen at very young ages
And the extinguisher loses it�s immunity
Morbid abuse of power in the garden of eden
Where the apple gets a youthful face

You can�t go on hiding yourself
Behind old fashioned fairytales
And keep washing your hands in innocence”
