God is good. God is great. Don’t use God to support your hate. God is joy. God is love. When we pray, we all look above. God…Haven’t you heard? God… is a nondenominational word. We have many bodies. But only one life. God is powerful, God is wise.
I wish there was a sect of Christianity that was more about the man than the myth. I dig Jesus in a big way, but I don’t believe in any of the malarkey. That’s right, I think the man’s words of love, peace, and forgiveness is enough. I don’t need an Immaculate Conception, Resurrection, Harrowing of Hell, or Ascension to hear the truth in what the man taught during his life time.
After attending a Tenacious D concert, on the drive home I got to wondering what the D would be like if they were to become Born Again. I imagined them writing songs about their love for Jesus, but still cussing a lot. I thought it would be funny to write a few songs, but then more and more ideas continued to hit me and I wrote a lot more songs than I ever intended. The Born Against project started to take over my mind and situations would make me think, I have to go write a song about that.
I have always enjoyed using my sense of humor when writing songs. I like playful mischief when I make art or write. My previous solo music project was My Friends Are All Jerks, which were songs where I make fun of my closest friends. It’s funny to write songs just to bug my friends. It’s the concept that cracks me up most. Once I get a concept in my head, the rest just pours forth ready or not.
Born Against is not anti-Christian, in fact it’s Hardcore Christian. The voice is something like, ‘I fuckin’ love the Lord Jesus!’, kind of lyrics. The gritty cussin’ lyrics combined with a strong faith in the Lord shocks my ears every time I hear it, and then it cracks me up because it’s so weird to hear those attitudes together. If this sort of thing offends you, don’t worry. God has a wicked sense of humor.
This is a music project from 2007 where I make fun of a few of my closest friends. If I have not recorded a song about you yet, you are still not safe. It’s coming…
