"God [Take 1]" as written by and Ian Hunter....
God said to me "gonna kick your ass
'cos all you do is ask ask ask
All that energy looking for me when I'm sitting here inside you
Plain to see
How I built you cell for cell gave you sights to see
Gave you tales to tell
Even let you help yourself for a while
To take some weight off this busy child"

I said to god "I found you out
I know what this world is all about!"
God said "stop
Don't scramble your brain
My opponent's been messing you around again
See him and me are enemies and we play little games for galaxies
And he's inside you
'n I am too
So here we are
Just the three of you"

"oh we made mistakes, too many cards
But making human beings can be hard
A god gets tired of playing so much chess
He wishes his god would get him out of his mess"
I said to god "what's it like to die" he said "it's as plain as the sea and sky
Conception was him and me and you
When your batteries fade we all just move on"

I said to god "who's winning this game
Is the devil in front" he said "is that his name
You know I've been so busy I never asked
I never looked up from this awesome task"
I said to god "what's good 'n bad" he said "it's just something you've got to have

It don't mean nothing to us up here
But your primitive people
You gotta have fear"

I said to god "do I think for myself" he said I told you once you just help yourself
Don't forget you're composed of three, your thinking comes from him and me"
I said to god "how big are you, is there a religion, is it true
How big's the universe, is time
The same for you as my life is to mine"


God said "if all the things that made worlds float, were all to part
Then you would note
