god lyrics – ian hunter

(ian hunter)

god said to me “gonna kick your *ss – ‘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 superst*tion stay – to help you p*ss 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…”
