Bill Callahan – Faith/Void

Bill Callahan of Smog fame musing on the void, faith and atheism.  You don’t often find the dark night of the soul done in music this way, it’s usually the terrain of the gospel musicians: 

It’s time to put God away

Damnin’ the children
Makin’ the ill just a little more sick

It’s time to put God away
(I put God away)

This is the end of faith, no more must I strive
To find my peace, to find my peace in a lie
This is the end of faith, no more must I strive
To find my peace, to find my peace in a lie

It’s time to put God away
(I put God away)

For a void without a question is just perverse
A void without a question is just perverse
Like tear gas misters at my grave

It’s time to put God away
(I put God away)

For a void without a question is just perverse
This is the end of faith, no more must I strive
To find my peace, to find my peace in a lie
This is the end of faith, no more must I strive
To find my peace, to find my peace in a lie

It’s time to put God away
(I put God away)
