  • 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."
