"Letter to god" as written by and Henry Porch Sean Brennan....
Is this life this degradation
This pointless game, humiliation
Born to die, we're born to lose
And not one choice we make we choose
And when this life is at an end
We find that Death's our only friend
Must we suffer through your games, oh Lord?
Can God really be so bored?

We waste our lives destroying, hating,
While beneath our flesh a skull lies waiting
Blind to beauty blind to love,
We fear of our loving Lord above
Some live their lives to play their games,
Some live as victims, the insane
Your experiment oh Lord has failed
And I trust that when we meet you will forgive us

It's futile so I'll end this note
And find a knife and slit my throat
And come to track you down oh Lord
You better watch your back,
Be sure that when we meet you'll be surprised
No loving praise, no glee filled cries
Just pain and hate and tear filled sighs
And the question in the end is why?

    General Commentwhat is the meaning of life?
    why did God create such horrible creatures like humans?
    why must we live?

    people are so blind to what discusting things we are.
    people notice this and cant live with it which brings them to suicide, and this is wht this song is about.

    General Commentin these lyrics i see a person's thoughts on existance, he believes the fact that he is alive is not his choice and that death is so much better than life because life wasn't what he wanted in the first place, he blames God for all these saying that his life is the result of "God's boredom" meaning his life doesnt really matter to god (thus his life is so pathetic) then the person explains the things that make life terrible and decides to take act (suicide in the song) and meet his creator to ask him the ultimate question...Why?

    General CommentAgain, Sean has said this is a commentary on people in general who purposely, willingly, make life horrible, and it's just a poetic question to God as to why He would allow this. It's not about glamorizing death at all. it's an attack on the assholes of the world.
