"Thank You" as written by Mustafa Omer, Emily Phillips, James Murray and Mary Jess....
You made this world
You made this world
You made this world
Thank you, thank you
You gave me life
You gave me life
You gave me life
Thank you, thank you

Your love is everywhere
Your love is everywhere
Open me, open me

You sowed these seeds
You sowed these seeds
You sowed these seeds
Thank you, thank you
You brought this peace
You brought this peace
You brought this peace
Thank you, thank you

Your love is everywhere
Your love is everywhere
Your love is everywhere
Open me, open me

You kept me warm
You kept me warm
You kept me warm
Thank you, thank you
When I was in the desert
When I was in the war
When I was all alone
Thank you thank you

Your love is everywhere
Your love is everywhere
Your love is everywhere
Open me, open me

Let it come through me now
Let it come through me now
Let it come through me now
Open me Open me Open me

    General Commenti'm surprised no one has commented on the blatant spiritual element in this song... the first line being "you made this world" and soon after "you gave me life"... sounds quite similar to the lyrics of modern day praise & worship. Anyone know Glen's religious stance? I know he believes in God, but this song seems very "Christian" but in a non-cheesey way. Especially the "Open me" and "Let it come through me" lines... definitely a prayer of many evangelicals.

    General CommentGlen is a devout Reform Jew, but he also practices a lot of Eastern religions.

    This is a beautiful song . I can't really say much more. Singing "Open Me" over and over again is a common enough way to pray.

    I'm an Eastern Orthodox Christian who includes this song among the very few blatantly religious rock songs that don't simply suck. So much religious music is pure and utter crap, and this isn't. He keeps it simple, and as a result the message is powerful.

    The image of the Wasteland is especially important. One does not find God in a church or Synagogue. He or she find him when they have usually suffered greatly first. It's the 40 days in the desert, which is so important to Christian imagery.

    Glen is one of my favorite singers. He gets a little sappy at times, but he mostly writes poetic powerful music. Here he simply sings a love song to God.
