But don't let the word throw you off
Religion and spirit are two different plots
The word is “God.” Macklemore has had a complex relationship with God and religion, detailed in the songs “Church” and “Keep Marching,” wherein he says God is a metaphor for that which is beyond our grasp. He doesn’t want to confuse his fans by bringing up God here. Though they are related, saying you’re religious and saying you’re spiritual can be very different things.
