The Non-Believer

You donned your ceremonial robes today You had a job on down the way Some forgiveness here Some deliverance there Joy peace and holiness filled the air And I just came round to put my deposit down On a place in the afterlife today And to prepare to die’s not worth it all Or we […]

  “‘It’s good to talk’ is the most specious and misleading injunction since ‘All you need is love’. It has prompted millions of opinionated and empty-headed people to take to the internet and regale the world with their fatuities. It is not good to talk. Most of the time it’s better to keep quiet … […]

Hope and despair. The enemies of certainty and the friends of confusion. They are useless. It’s the theme of this song and I deal with it incredibly briefly, without detail, conclusion or any real assistance to the listener. You’re welcome.

Suffice to say that if mental health […]
