Skepticalyrics: "Truth Seeker"
Accept me for me, because all I can be is what I am.
Anything less than truth and honesty is a sham.
Reject that feeble mindset founded in fear, faith, and fallacies,
and live a life of integrity based on logical analyses.
I see a history filled with oppression of women,
and of people who happen to have the "wrong" shade of melanin,
and of people with divergent sexual dispositions.
I see how much violence comes from "peaceful" religions,
and if you don't believe in god you can never be forgiven.
I look around today and see the same bigotry.
Yeah we've won some battles but we're far from victory.
When will people see we're from the same family tree,
that extends all the way back to African ancestry?
When will differences be celebrated instead of hated?
When will we see more love consecrated than hatred demonstrated?
When will people plan to put progress over prejudice?
And when will using reason replace being credulous?
I'm a truth seeker, mixing rhymes like chemicals in a beaker.
Let's work together to make our future brighter, not bleaker.
Because anything less than truth and honesty is a sham,
so accept me for me, because all I can be is who I am.
