My favorite.

Quote:
This god of your holy books I do not agree with him
I will not be one more servant
I will not bow to anything
Not a puff of smoke or the flash of a turning mirror
Let's talk about your real fears
Like that you might actually be all alone
No happy heavenly home
To return to god, dispenser of judgmental pencil shavings
He's got baggies full for you
But I've got a planet packed with proof
Oh, to understand
You must spend time alone
To comprehend
You must spend time alone
To be together
We must spend time alone
And I am the only thing that's controlling
My functions, my habits, and hands

Oh my. I grew up in a very evangelical, fundamental home (until divorce changed all that), and this hits much closer to home than I'd like it to. I never understood how things like basketball or trips to petting zoos related to fountains flowing deep and wide and all that jazz.

Growing up the only things we were allowed to listen to in the car, while my dad was driving of course, was a set of CD/DVDs containing these exact children renditions of popular gospel songs and veggie tales.

Thinking about it now, I find it repulsive.

The indoctrination at such a young age is certainly sickening. My experience was pretty similar. It was either this stuff or Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith. I don't think I allowed myself to listen to anything I found personally interesting until late high school/early college. Once they get it in your head so young and often, well, you know.

The closest christian music my dad would play for me growing up is Jesus Is Just Alright by The Doobie Brothers..
I do have family ties to a certain popular christian rock musician , but luckily i had almost no contact with that evangelical side of the family growing up.

I could be way off on this, but I was raised really religiously, and this song really made me feel like it was OK to question that for the first time in a long time. So this is my cheesy pick because that's how I heard it.
