about

“By Amazing Grace” was inspired by the episode “Heart of Gold” from the TV show Firefly. It’s about toxic masculinity and what a real man is.


Some people use religion as justification for atrocious behavior. It reminds people to pay attention to what is righteous and just as opposed to evil people who use religion to control others.


Real men and good people recognize and value the strength of women. They don’t try to control them or blame them for their own weakness and failings.

lyrics

He was an alpha male and like a strong gale,
He blew thru your life without regret
Left destruction and pain, then came back again
To hurt you and leave you upset


But he rushed to your side when he heard you cry,
Like a cowboy though he caused your distress
You ain't a lady in need. So he better take heed
Or you’ll destroy him in your purty dress


* By amazing grace, you don’t need him
It’s amazing he didn't know he was wrong
The true measure of a man
Is how willing he is to stand
By the side of a woman who’s strong


With a little bit o' force, he laid out a course
To show you that he was righteous
But you saw through that routine. You knew he was just mean
Though he tried to pretend he was pious


Yes, monsters are real, especially when they feel
That their actions are justified by God
You ain’t looking to run and you’re my kind of dumb
You’ll lay him right down in the sod
