God is dead, in my shed.
Better red, living in my head.
Best unsaid.
Filling me with dread.
God is dead put it in my shed.
Better dead than red.
The dog is fed
God is dead, definitely dead.

I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you.
I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you.

Chicago school.
Treats us like fools.
Viva Chavez, Viva Allende.
God is Dead.
He's buried in my shed.
The free market is still not dead.
Wartime leaders get Nobel peace prizes.
God is dead.
He's definitely dead.

I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you.
I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you. I wouldn't lie to you.

Even though he was really never my own. Even though he was really never my own.

    General CommentI feel confident in saying that this song has nothing to do with President Obama. The Chicago School (of Economics) refers to the "free market" deregulation championed by Milton Friedman and spread around the world through force by its followers. The wartime Nobel Peace Prize winners probably refers to Lê Ðức Thọ and Henry Kissinger.

    General CommentThis song seems like an ode to Obama; or rather, the disappointment in Obama.

    I can't tell which part is coming from the writer, and which part is coming off as a sarcastic mutilation of Obama's original promises.

    Regardless, the Obama-theme is obvious.....Chicago is mentioned, as is his Nobel Peace Prize. Is God dead because Obama invoked his name (doubt it)....or is God dead because this was our BEST....and he hasn't been much different than the previous prez (I'm with this).

    (Disclaimer: This is my opinion on Leatherface's meaning....not my own political thoughts, which I will keep to myself.)
