Lyrics

Brothers and sisters, have you heard the news?
The storm has lifted and there's nothing to lose
So swap your confirmation for your dancing shoes
Because there never was no God.

Come out of the darkness and onto the streets
Forget about the fast, let's have a carnival feast
Raise up your lowered head and hear the liberation beat
Because there never was no God.

There is no God, so clap your hands together
There is no God, no heaven and no hell
There is no God, we're all in this together
There is no God, so ring that victory bell

No cowering in the dark before some overbearing priest
No waiting till we die until we restitute the meek
No blaming all our failings on imaginary beasts
Because there never was no God

No fighting over land your distant fathers told you of
No spilling blood for those who never spread a drop of love
No finger pointing justified by phantoms up above
Because there never was no God

There is no God, so clap your hands together
There is no God, no heaven and no hell
There is no God, we're all in this together
There is no God, so ring that victory bell

I know you're scared of dying, yeah, and I am too,
But pretending it's not happening isn't going to see us through
But if we accept that there's an endgame and we haven't got much time
Then in the here and now we can try and do things right

We'll our own salvation army and together we'll believe
In all the wondrous things that mere mortals have achieved

I've known beauty in the stillness of cathedrals in the day
I've sung "Glory Hallelujah, won't you wash my sins away!"
But now we're singing my refrain and this is what I say:
I say there never was no God.
