I Set My Own Mind Free

Tune: O Glory, How Happy I Am, Rev. Gary Davis

Sometime before the age of 10,
I had an imaginary friend.
I knew he wasn't real though, even then.
I set my own mind free
I lifted my feet from the mire and clay
And stayed out of religion's way
And now I'm very proud to say
I set my own mind free

I was raised to watch too much TV.
I discovered books, and I started to read
Both literature and philosophy.
I set my own mind free
I read Bertrand Russell. I read Voltaire.
I read some Madalyn Murray O'Hair
I found enlightenment in there, but
I set my own mind free

Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we start in to believe
Ignore the facts, lie and deceive, but
I set my own mind free
I got a guitar and I learned how to play
I play my guitar most every day
And I like to sing the songs that say
I set my own mind free

I know something that's mighty swell
A sweet little story I love to tell
There is no heaven, and there is no hell
So set your own mind free
Jerry Falwell, get out of my way
There's nothing to back up a thing you say
But you keep on sayin' it anyway
Just set your own mind free

I'm so happy I have a brain
I'm not deluded and I'm not insane
You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain
If you set your own mind free

So many gods with so many names. . .
Investigate religion's claims
Embrace your doubts - don't be ashamed
To set your own mind free
With logic and reason I am filled
So many people have been killed
There's no more reason for blood to be spilled
Just set your own mind free
