Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

One night I dreamed I was
Walking along the beach with god
Across the sky flashed
Scenes from my life
For each scene, I noticed two sets
Of footprints in the sand
One belonged to me and
The other to god

Then I noticed something strange
I noticed that many times
Along the path of my life
There was only one set of footprints
I also noticed that it happened
At the hardest times in my life

I said, "God, I have noticed that
during the most difficult
times of my life, there is only
one set of footprints.
I don't understand why,
when I needed you the most,
you would leave me".

God replied, "I didn't leave you.
During your times of trial
and suffering, when you see only
one set of footprints,
that was when I carried you".

Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

And I said to god,
"You carried me?
What the fuck are you talking about?
My dog died.
My sister got killed in a car accident.
Maybe, instead of carrying me,
you could have stopped these bad things
from happening at all.
Did you ever think about that,
you fucking prick?"

And god replied, "You stupid human.
Do not question the lord.
I fuck with you and then I carry you.
It's just something that I enjoy doing.
If you don't like it, you can just go to hell".

Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

Right about now
I'll take you where you wanna go
Gotta open up
Let me see inside your soul

"Okay god, I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.
I just don't understand why you make
everybody suffer so much just so you
can carry them on the beach.
But that's cool.
That's your thing.
God?
God!
Wait!
Wait!
Come back!
Please, come back God.
I need you.

I think I have cancer".
