God is good, I never understood
All the darkness in his soul.
And God made man, the only way he can,
But for a heart he left a hole..
And it's killing you
And it's killing me too
Are we failing the truth?
I'm betting on desire, i'm betting on deceit
I'm betting on a moment when everything is sweet
I'm betting on disaster in every living hour.
Would you burn your fingers if you touched God?
Will he let you in if you have or not?
Once my friend, I loved you as a child
Kissed your face before I slept.
Be in my head, and with me when I sleep
In the bloodied tears he wept.
And it's killing you
And it's killing me too
Are we failing the truth?
I'm betting on indifference, i'm betting on belief
I'm thinking of a beauty where ev'rything's complete
I'm betting on a laughter, a very distant star....
Would you burn your fingers if you touched God?
Will he let you in if you have or not?
And it's killing you
And it's killing me too
Are we failing the truth in everything we do?
Are we failing the truth?
I'm betting on desire, i'm betting on deceit
I'm betting on a moment where everything is sweet
I'm thinking of the beauty I love with all my heart.....
Would you burn your fingers if you touched God?
Will he let you in if you have or not?
Will he let you in?

    General CommentShe starts off saying she never understood why god is good (understandable).

    But then contradicts herself in saying she believed in him?
    "Once my friend, I loved you as a child
    Kissed your face before I slept.
    Be in my head, and with me when I sleep"
    Although she doesn't say he was good then, so maybe she just believed in him as a child and then realised he was nothing when she got older.

    General CommentAlong with 'Damascus', another song about losing the faith you had as a child.

    When she was young, the singer believed in God wholeheartedly, found Him comforting, 'went to sleep with him in her head'. But as she grew older, she realized that there is a dark side to the many stories about God (go look up the story of the prophet of God who cursed forty children to die by being torn apart by bears because they teased him about his hair), and felt that God was indifferent to her life. So she lost her faith, and now asks whether He would let her in even if she could get close enough to touch.
