Your only daughter's turning tricks cause she's jonesin' for a fix
She just blew your mechanic, that's when you will lose, your wife's
Overdose was a success, humiliation was too great
Now with your estate foreclosed, you will surely lose your head

Was in a bad place when you punched your supervisor in the throat
An inadvertent fatal blow, were the words your lawyer used
On the unsympathetic judge, who was having a bad day
So he threw your life away, is faith still comforting you?
I know the answer, still I ask, where is your god now?

You thought it was the Christian thing to do, breaking up that fight at school
'Til the gun came into play, and the sight was set on you
Running was ironic cause it was the last time you would
You wish the kids you tried to help wouldn't laugh when he saw you

Are the invisible man, no one looks you in the eye
You've become an anecdote, the wrong place at the wrong time
The worst case scenario, the proverbial "that guy"
You never did question your faith, you flushed it with your first piss bag
That's why I have to ask, where is your god now?

    General CommentJeffKaos71 - Basically, what they're trying to get at is.. if you're an entirely good person, why would god punish you? The common Christian response to this is that "God tests us." Well these worst case scenarios are like, why the FUCK would "God" punish someone that seemingly hasn't done anything wrong. In this situation, strongly religious people tend to look to God even more for help/answers... From a logical point of view, it's totally insane to put so much faith in a god that would do that to you.

    General CommentI'm agnostic, but I'd think If your gonna have faith in God you have to understand he gives man free will. He doesn't interfere in our lives so I don't understand people who lose faith when something bad happens.

    General Commentthe first lines are wrong i think, it starts out with

    "your younger daughter's on the pipe(?)
    robbed you and your mother blind
    on an internet site, she
    blew your mechanic"

    General Commentyeah this song is awesome, but to answer your question modernman, your friend is a stupid douchebag and he's wrong. they're somewhat similar, but not realy. youre bleeding starts off with the notes A G# G G, and this song starts of doing A G# G F#. plus the chord progressions under each one are different too. SUCKA CHRISTIANS

    General Commentwell its obviously about how people lose faith so easily when bad things happen to them but is it making fun of that or asking how they can just turn on a faith so easily?

    General CommentSo obvious! To me it has pretty much been described already, with others talking about exactly what the lyrics say, WHERE is your god now? When you're having this horrible time, where is your god? And when that snowballs even more and you get an even worse situation, WHERE is your god? Some people put so much faith into a god/savior and people like 'a judge having a bad day' are the true deciders of a lot of peoples fate.
