 +====== Frank Turner - Glory Hallelujah ======
  
 +===== Liedtext =====
 +
 +<blockquote>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\\ 
 + 
 +Step out of the darkness and on to 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\\ 
 + 
 +And there is no God so clap your hands together\\ 
 +There is no God, no heaven and no hell\\ 
 +For 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 until we die, until we restitute the meek\\ 
 +No blaming all our failings on imaginary beast\\ 
 +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\\ 
 +And 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, man and I am too\\ 
 +But just pretending it's not happening isn't gonna see us through\\ 
 +If we accept that there's an end game and we haven't got much time\\ 
 +Then in the here and now that we can try and do things right\\ 
 + 
 +We'd be our own salvation army and together we believe\\ 
 +In all the wondrous things that mere mortals can achieve\\ 
 + 
 +Well, 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 I'm singing my refrain and this is what I say\\ 
 +I say there never was no God\\ 
 + 
 +There is no God so clap your hands together\\ 
 +There is no God, no heaven and no hell\\ 
 +But there is no God, we're all in this together\\ 
 +There is no God so ring that victory bell\\ 
 +One more time\\ 
 + 
 +There is no God so clap your hands together\\ 
 +There is no God, no heaven and no hell\\ 
 +But there is no God, we're all in this together\\ 
 +There is no God so ring that victory bell\\

 +===== Kommentar des Künstlers =====
 +
 +
 +<blockquote>Yet the most striking and contentious song is Glory Hallelujah, described by Turner as "atheist gospel", is a stirring sing-a-long based around a chorus of "There is no God! So clap your hands together!" and is best described as a musical version of London's 2009 atheist bus adverts. "I know this will get a lot of attention, but I want to make it clear it is not an anti-religious song," he says. "It is an anti-theist song. I'm a big Richard Dawkins fan, but I wanted to write a joyous song, not a spiteful fuck-you song that says if you are a religious person, you are an idiot. I have no desire to offend anyone: in fact, I'm not even sure I'll play it at the show tonight because it is in the crypt of Liverpool cathedral.
