Ironfist Atheist - You ARE My Enemy: A Metal-tribute to The Hitch!

I can't stand thinking about the fact that this great mind might soon be gone. So instead of thinking about it, I wrote a track to express how I experience the power and the hope for the future of humanity that lies behind his arguments - but I wanted the words to be his own, so I cut out parts from a discussion he had with a radioshow-host who would (and should) grossly offend any thinking being with even the most juvenile sense of morality and ethics: the discussion can be found (among other places) here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQorzO...

Here are the "lyrics":
Host:
Well I want to make it clear in our closing moments here Christopher:
I don't consider you an enemy...

Hitchens:
Well I'm very sorry to hear that

Chorus:
Host:
I know because you want me to be your enemy

Hitchens:
No excuse me you ARE my enemy:
Your preachments are evil and they're a direct threat to the survival of civilization
You ARE my enemy

You've made the worst confession already
You already said you're a slave
After that mere obedience to orders is a small offence

Host:
I readily admit that I'm a slave
I'm a slave of the lord Jesus Christ

Hitchens:
Then get out of your chains...
It's up to you but you must leave me out of it
I don't want to be told that I have to obey these laws too
Or that my children has to be taught this in school
Or that laws have to be written to gratify the bizarre beliefs of a cult like yours
There's something I would need you to understand:
You're quite happy to believe this; why can't you keep it to yourself?

Host:
Well... why can't you keep your atheism to yourself?

Hitchens:
Because the religious won't allow me to
Because every time I open the paper there is another instance of theocratic encroachment on free society which I won't put up with -

Up with which, I will not put!

Chorus:
Host:
I know because you want me to be your enemy

Hitchens:
No excuse me you ARE my enemy:
Your preachments are evil and they're a direct threat to the survival of civilization
You ARE my enemy

Host:
Your view would be the same as mine
That child-sacrifice is reprehensible would it not?

Hitchens:
Did Abraham think child-sacrifice was an okay idea?

Host:
He obeyed God and God intervened...
The ultimate question is does God think child-sacrifice is okay since he sent his own son to be the ultimate sacrifice?

Hitchens:
Well he appears to be in favor of it

Host:
He does appear to be in favor of it but in context...

Hitchens:
Can you and I agree that we're not? Only asking...

Host:
Do you believe that that god if he's provided everything for you
Has rights on your life?

Hitchens:
No

Host:
Because?

Hitchens:
Why should he? What gives him this right?

Host:
Because he owns you
He's created everything for you...

Hitchens:
Well I don't want to be owned
I don't want to be owned and I don't recognize anyone's right to own me

Host:
So ownership is a bad thing?

Hitchens:
Of people yes
I know the bible does call for slavery
As it calls for genocide
But that doesn't make it right

Chorus:
Host:
I know because you want me to be your enemy

Hitchens:
No excuse me you ARE my enemy:
Your preachments are evil and they're a direct threat to the survival of civilization
You ARE my enemy

Host:
Well but you're not my enemy

Hitchens:
Tell me how do you figure that?

Host:
No because I don't feel a need to silence Christopher Hitchens...

Hitchens:
Well you don't have a chance of doing that
If you don't consider me an enemy;
Then you don't know an enemy when you see or hear one
