Mono is a song inspired by the Islamic pillar of monotheism, discussing the benefits, drawbacks and failures of systems where one leader or way is seen by some as all powerful.

lyrics

Jack The Ripper, The Mad Psyentist
The Five Pillars EP

The people had a hut, inside it was their idols
Each claimed it was the only one, the rest were lying rivals
A prophet killed then all but one, they wondered why he did
When you're little Gods die, ask the One that lives

Theres only 1 God, 1 King, 1 President
Multiple opinions are irrelevant, fuck hesitance
To jumping off the precipice, have faith in us, invest in this
Take culture, make a nest in it, I'll breed and cause a mess of it

And profit off the rest of it, cry about it pessimist
‘Cause even if I hurt you you'll buy my pills for depression bitch
I convinced you I'm the only right way
You believe you want to leave me but you think you've gotta stay

I'm the one, they're ain’t none other
All this bitches is my sons, yeah, word to ya mother
And I'm tripping on my power, there ain't no way of stopping me
There's only one God, yeah that Bitch has a monopoly

You think you know God, you don't even know yourself
Theres sub atomic particles, and elements, and cells
11 Dimensions–never mind just heaven and hell
If there's only one God, I hope It's done the math well

Well my God says your God's not one
And that religion over there's got a lot of ‘em
I said God damn, that ain't fair someone stop them
God called them impostors, so we shot them (BANG)

Heads or tails, call it what you like
There's more than one right, in this world of men and mice
If I die once, that's only half a dice
Gods never wrong, but did we do the math right? (Oh)

Ying or Yang, call it what you like
There's more than one truth in this world of men and mice
If we don't believe in self, then there ain't no way of stoping me
If God created everything, then it's beyond monopoly

If there is a God It couldn't be an individual
The Dali Lama ain't even a person, it's residual
We can agree that God is pan dimensional, invisible
As well as the supreme judge of all laws physical

But is it indivisible? Why do you need it to be?
The clergy make a book, and you sheep just say feed it to me
But if I made you look, they'd call me crazy immediately
But Stephen Hawkins agrees, now is Jesus competing with me?

We turn around and say to them "you must believe in Science
It's proven by our method lack of faith would be defiance
You can read it in the records, NIH or FDA"
(But the latter lies for money, and the formers underpaid)
 
They call their drugs 'good,' but they don't grow that pot shit
And so they call it bad cause they cant use it for a profit
Bureaucracy pays scientists to force the facts to give in
Politics taints science just like all religion

The people had a hut, inside it was their idols
Each claimed it was only one, the rest were lying rivals
A prophet killed then all but one, they wondered why he did
When you're little Gods die, ask the One that lives

Try to count God, you'll turn it to commodity 
You sell it for its strength and shun others as an oddity
Your God is name brand, my God is raw matterial
It's everywhere and everything and energy ethereal 

They said there's one God, and then they sell it to the masses
And if they can't market it they go and repackage
We enslave ourselves to given patriarch masters
Some call a God a father but we're really both bastards

We read the same chapters, translated and edited
And everybody stays inline, on the same sedative
Prophets sampled other prophets, many uncredited
And everyone makes money off it cause we're all competitive

Or maybe we're indebted to our culture as a whole
So we kill, lie, rape, steal and hate for great goals
When's it right? When's it wrong? I'm unsure. Can you tell?
I can't narrow it down, I hope you've done the math well

Well my God says your God's not one
And that religion over there's got a lot of ‘em
I said God damn, that ain't fair someone stop them
God called them impostors, so we shot them (Bang)

Heads or tails, call it what you like
There's more than one right, in this world of men and mice
If I die once, that's only half a dice
God's never wrong, but did we do the math right? (Oh)

Ying or Yang, call it what you like
There's more than one truth in this world of men and mice
If we don't believe in self, then there ain't no way of stoping me
If God created everything, then It's beyond monopoly

If there is a God...that mutherfucker’s been around a lot longer than numbers, let me tell you...
And that God’s been around longer than your religion
Your prophets are young, Your numbers are young
Businessmen just need single items ss they can sell them to you in packages
Don’t believe the hype...

Heads or tails, call it what you like
There's more than one right, in this world of men and mice
If I die once, that's only half a dice
God's never wrong, but did we do the math right? (Oh)

Ying or Yang, call it what you like
There's more than one truth in this world of men and mice
If we don't believe in self, then there ain't no way of stoping me
If God created everything, then It's beyond monopoly
