"The God Film" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
She's like death on two legs
She is raw pink shame
Please stop the God film
It's all wrong
But I'm not to blame

These boys of image
Carry banners
Believe in slogans
Kill policeman

Say it's 'freedom'
Say it's 'goodness'
Say it's 'peaceful'
I'm lonely
I'm feeling down (everyone I know has been and gone)

It's such a sick picture
She says 'i cure everyone'
I'm alone in a corner
I won't ever forgive
I must be broken
I don't know
Who on earth can I blame?

    Song MeaningI always thought this song was aimed at people who did sick and terrible things either in the name of religion, or in contrast to what they professed to believe. In the opening verse Gary seems to be commenting on the guilt that he is being forced to feel at the sight of a sexy/beautiful woman. "Please stop the God film/It's all wrong" says (to me) "Whoah! Why am I being made to feel ashamed by being turned on by this?"

    In the second verse, he seems to be pointing out the falseness of so-called faith healers or people who claim their religion can cure the evils of the world. "I must be broken" says (again, to me) "What is wrong with me that I don't believe in this stuff?" "Who on earth can I blame?" if not a god?

    The chorus, however, is the best part. Here Gary refers to the "Boys of image", the so-called believers, who profess to believe in a god but then do terrible atrocities in His name. Which leave Gary feeling depressed and alone/abandoned ("everyone I know has been and gone").

    Wonderful song.
