Today’s New Religion

The old religious campaign has gone
Technology we could not imagine has done
We're becoming a more enlightened society
Advance in science go beyond philosophy
it is a new religion driven human being
Taking amazing opportunity to dream
That the world is becoming more compatible
Finding unconventional ideas among the ineligible
Faith in schools has effectively
Divided children into finding creative discovery
In terms of mixed race and religion
Uniformity inspiring some assumption
But attitudes is still a little worrying
The more we discover what people have to say
Technology gives us something else to dream
About the cultures we believed in
Spoilt for choice with different concept taken
Making mankind universal Unitarians
most people believe in neither God nor man
Where are we today with this new religion?
do we really care if the path taken is important?
leaving the past to discover a new religion
where technology is the key of a new beginning
