As an agnostic-atheist I think faith is a sin and people should question everything. (Wow somebody's going to read that and say something, I don't mean to offend.) Anyway, this is a song I wrote about faith:

do you dare
take the stairs
down to the depths of mother earth
and live a life so normally
society
has told you what to think it should be worth
its time to think for once yourself
cast a spell
and pray to the god that you create
and ask that he be merciful
its pitiful
thats why its god that i will always hate
i wish that i could live a life of my own
believing things i learned while all alone
ill live my own way and touch the clouds
but heaven waits for those who follow crowds
break away
i always say
that im the only one who understands
and that is why i will remain
so insane
cause i denied your words and your demands
sometimes i try and spread the word
but go unheard
and people try to label me a loon
but they dont know theyre so naive
cause theyll believe
anything theyre told about the moon
i wish that i could live a life of my own
believing things i learned while all alone
ill live my own way and touch the clouds
but heaven waits for those who follow crowds
faiths a lie
so am i
but atleast im not a part of a disease
a part of all conspiracies
the clergys
have brainwashed populations now with ease
but i remain an open mind
until i find
something i dont need faith in to know
cause faiths a fantasy, a farce
the hardest part
is knowing which direction i should go
so i spread my arms like demons wings
i eye the sky and stare at stars and things
i cry the questions out into the wind
and find the answers where ive always been
i wish that i could live a life of my own
believing things i learned while all alone
ill live my own way and touch the clouds
but heaven waits for those who follow crowds

It just feels a little hollow. I'm not saying its bad. But these are just the thoughts of one man.

Oooooo! Finally some criticism. I was hoping by posting my lyrics I would get some decent criticisms because I'm an amateur song writer and I really want become an EXPERT song writer, and I need people to tell me EVERYthing I'm doing wrong. I haven't gotten a whole lot since I posted these, but thank you very much! To be honest with you I wrote this entire song AROUND the lyrics "I'll live my own way and touch the clouds, but heaven waits for those who follow crowds." I had those lyrics written and just wanted to write a song around them because I liked them a lot. This is definitely not one of my best songs. I especially hate the first part all the way up until the chorus. I do like the lyrics, "Faith's a lie, so am I, but atleast I'm not a part of a disease," and some of the other stuff that comes after it. But I'm going to rewrite this entire song because I completely agree with you about it being hollow. I appreciate your candor and criticism and I'm glad you reminded me that I need to fix this song because I've been busy writing new ones I forgot to fix my other ones that need fixing.
