The Lyrics

This is my reply to Phil Alexander and his "Battle Hymn of an Atheist". I'm not into religion, but more into spirituality. This is the way I'd see the issues.
I know a gal who has been dead and she has seen the Lord
on basis of her NDE we have not been ignored
This earth is not our true home but it's learning what we're for
We all are part of Him.

I've read Old and New testaments - and Quran, Talmud too
While they're full of contradictions, they do contain also truth
It's Dual Commandment of Love and it's the Golden Rule -
We all are part of Him.

CHORUS:
Amazing story - what's it to ya?
Wonder story - what's it to ya?
Awesome story - what's it to ya?
We all are part of Him.

We're spirits in the world that us appear material
Sting got it right - our bodies wear and die but that's not all
We're Children of God, heaven-bound and He does love us all
We all are part of Him

The fire and brimstone Gospel, it is total crap in deed
our Daddy loves each one of us and nothing fear we need
We need to love each other and avoid the hate and greed -
We all are part of Him

OK, if He's omniscient, then why the need to pray?
It's telling him what's on our mind and what we need to say
To listen God, now all you need is learn to meditate
We all are part of Him

Now in this world we suffer but we are all volunteers -
we've left the Home in Heaven, born on Earth for timely years
We have free will to profess, to know laughter from the tears
We all are part of Him.

We inhabitate these bodies which are frail and die as well
evolution is the way which God designed our earthly shell
This world is like a boot camp, and it sure does feel like hell
We all are part of Him

This world, it does not offer love, its desolate and dim
Our task is learn to love by care and emulating Him
We'll need to create love where it -- ain't, and avoid sin
We all are part of Him

Now God doesn't care which faith we are or which name we Him call
all we need is love and care each other - just recall:
Treat your fellow man like yourself and remember one and all:
We all are part of Him

And if we fail we are not doomed but have to just repeat
un-til we've learnt the lesson, what we sow we also reap
Sin is not a crime but failing do the correct deed -
We all are part of Him

And when you'll kick the bucket and it's end of earthly race
you will find yourself in tunnel speeding 'cross the stars and space
You'll return just back to Heaven and you'll meet Daddy face to face -
We all are part of Him

There's no need to fear the God 'cause He is Love of purest state
if you've learned to love each other then your reward will be great
The worst expect to happen is to have to re-incarnate
We all are part of Him

Now, I've not been offended for the words of Phil I've read
I've tried to think about it - yes, I mean think with my head...
Yes, Phil is wrong - but he will too find out when he is dead -
Phil too is part of Him!

Well, hello there, Susannah, what a very sweet reply
And although I may disagree, right now I won't say why
For in a hundred years or less, we'll find out when we die
Who's right and who was wrong :-)
