God Wears Black


God was on T.V. today
Never a special moment
for he’s the news everyday
Kabila was shot but God lived
‘cause God is everywhere

God is white, God is black
God is a scud missile attack
God is a nun, God is the gun
that blew Kennedy away

God spoke to Charles Manson
the same way he spoke to Gandhi
Give the people any dream
and they will love and follow you
until I set them free

God is love, God is hate
God is the you that he creates
God is a bomb, God is the mom
that aborted you gone

God is you, God is me
He’s everything we can see
God is right, God is wrong
He’s the building you jumped from

God wears black.

    Bible: 'Be pure as a Temple & GOD will be with us'. 'This World is ruled by the devil'.
    Believe that GOD is the recorder and deliverer of all our Acts in words, deeds and thoughts. (Report) Reply

    God is white, and what is black?
    Surely the word implies attack
    He sent his son, and like a gun
    He blew our sins away

    God will speak to anyone
    Who’s ready to obey
    He preaches through dreams
    And just as it seems
    Their souls are shown the way

    God is love, and yet you hate
    You make a choice to spend your fate
    We built the bombs, we scared the moms
    Who now are killing their babes

    God is in you, he works through me
    The divine creator of all we see
    God is right, but we can be wrong
    And its him who has followed me all along

    And he’ll come like a thief in the night

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
