lyrics

God I love you help me
your poems speak to me
and you are confusing
good and bad, duality
you give it all take it away
omnipotence = stupid
God you made us foolish
tribes hemmed in by the seas
and your chosen flounder
in your name, atrocities
all this pain is contradictory
when we all just be happy?
atheism is shallow to me
we’ll find out (wait and see)
coming over to make it known
with a hand like a cornerstone
instead of over me with talons
waiting for deliverance
with eyes shut in defiance
standing over me with weapons
my coffin is a warm bed
how long have I got?
God I held a baby
as he bled out to sea
all the chosen prostrate
in your name, atrocities
I can feel you like a saddle on me
steering me, where are we going? that way?
I can feel you like a saddle on me
chomp the bit, spurs digging
my coffin is a warm bed
what then?
a chariot?
or something equally ridiculous?
