In this 10-minute album closer, Callahan sings, "It's time to put God away." Callahan explained to Mojo magazine April 2009: "I've been reading a lot of atheist writers: Mark Twain, Richard Dawkins, Robert Ingersoll, Ian McEwan, Mencken, Lovecraft. Obama mentioned 'non-believers,' in his inauguration speech. I wanted to write a song that backed all this up."
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
