"I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age, but girl I'm not your savior"

from The 1975 – Girls Lyrics on Rap Genius

Should this song break the upper reaches of the charts, as it should when it is released in November, it may well be the first song in chart history to feature lyrically the word ‘secular’.
