Words & Music by James Kennedy
'Sugar' is an Alternative Rock song & the 4th song on the 2012 Kyshera album 'Made In China'. The words, music & production are by James Kennedy.
'Sugar' is another musical tour de force on the album featuring various genre changes, unconventional chords, various sound effects, noise & odd time signatures. The song starts with a sample of Richard Dawkins speaking against Religion which sets the theme for the song which, lyrically, goes on to be overtly critical of all Religions. Kennedy makes some very strong statements about Religion in this song, which not all listeners will find agreeable. 'Sugar' ends abruptly half way through and spontaneously digresses in to random samples of people praying, Dogs snarling & Pigs snorting before kicking back in to the 2nd half of the song. Musically, the song contains tons of layers from various keyboards, Guitars, effects, harmonies, spoken word, noise & much more.
Man made God and God made you
Through those motherly encyclopedias of truth
Christian, Hindu, Muslim and Jew
Your Gods were bred to hypnotise you.
Postpone your potential to the next life
‘Cos it’s Gods will that they fuck you
And there’s eternal suffering for sinners
Who question the convenience of blind faith.
Happily you cede free will
For a fantasy that is easier for you.
A trillion dollar industry
Thats sells the cheapest lie ever to humanity
And a hypocrites, blood letting morality
Fearful, hateful, braindead willing killers
Blinded by some bullshit bigoted fairy tale
Yet see their shallow, selective faith in action.
Every time they pray from their hospital bed.
I’m not an atheist, I’m an anti-theist
But I’m a better person than any of you
Your moral highgrounds nothing more than an insurance agenda
‘Cos even if you’re ever good it’s only to save your own ass burning
Humbly your on your knees
Waste your only life begging to nobody
