God

(ian hunter)

God said to me gonna kick your ass - ’cos all you do is ask ask ask
All that energy looking for me when I’m sitting here inside you - plain to see
How I built you cell for cell gave you sights to see - gave you tales to tell
Even let you help yourself for a while - to take some weight off this busy child

I said to God I found you out - I know what this world is all about!
God said stop - don’t scramble your brain - my opponent’s been messing you around again
See him and me are enemies and we play little games for galaxies
And he’s inside you - ’n I am too - so here we are - just the three of you

Oh we made mistakes - too many cards - but making human beings can be hard
A God gets tired of playing so much chess - he wishes his God would get him out of his mess
I said to God what’s it like to die he said it’s as plain as the sea and sky
Conception was him and me and you - when your batteries fade we all just move on

I said to God who’s winning this game - is the devil in front he said is that his name
You know I’ve been so busy I never asked - I never looked up from this awesome task
I said to God what’s good ’n bad he said it’s just something you’ve got to have
It don’t mean nothing to us up here - but your primitive people - you gotta have fear

I said to God do I think for myself he said I told you once you just help yourself
Don’t forget you’re composed of three, your thinking comes from him and me
I said to God how big are you, is there a religion - is it true
How big’s the universe - is time - the same for you as my life is to mine

God said if all the things that made worlds float - were all to part - then you would note
The size of him and the size of me - and that’s how big we both shall be

He said the universe is small - just like some fortune-teller’s ball
And we both sit down - and we play the game - when somebody wins it all starts again

There’s no religion - you did that - it helps to keep your little leaders fat
Like faith ’n superstition stay - to help you pass the time away
But when you talk of time and life - it makes me think of circles, heights
Expansion is the clue - your dreams - are nearer than you’ve ever been

You see my little toy to think - is from two bowls of wine to drink
Don’t take too much or you may drown - behave yourself - see you around...

    What insightful lyrics for 'God' by Ian Hunter! as a Christian myself it seems to me that Ian has a belief of sorts about Christianity? also Ian what do you do to keep fit at 74! Great music and lyrics.
