Dear God

Nummer van XTC
Origineel op album Skylarking (1986)
Dear God I hope you got the letter and I pray that you can make it better down here I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer But all the people that you made in your image See them starving on their feet 'Cause they don't get enough to eat From God I can't believe in you Dear God Sorry to disturb you but I feel that I should be heard loud and clear We all need a big reduction in amounts of tears But all the people that you made in your image See them fighting in the street 'Cause they can't make opinions meet About God Can't believe in you Did you make disease And the diamond blue Did you make mankind After we made you And the Devil too Dear God Don't know if you've noticed but Your name is on a lot of quotes in this Book Us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look And all the people that you made in your image Still believing that junk is true Well, I know it ain't and so do you Dear God I can't believe in I don't believe in I won't believe in Heaven and Hell No saints, no sinners, no Devil as well No pearly gates, no thorny crown You're always lettin' us humans down The wars you bring, the babes you drown Those lost at sea and never found And it's the same the whole world 'round The hurt I see helps to compound The Father, Son and Holy Ghost Is just somebody's unholy hoax And if you're up there, you perceive That my heart's here upon my sleeve If there's one thing I don't believe in It's you Dear God
