Well, I lived in that town until I was 17
When I moved to the mountains that rose from the sea
Where they taught me to pray
Each and every day
They said if I didn't
That the devil would take me

And so I threw my hands up
And I spoke to the Lord
I said, "I'm a sinner, an apocryphal poet!"
It seems that God wasn't near
For no words did I hear

Could it be I was talking to no one?

Please beware
In a mysterious way God is here!
Please beware
He's your pity, your pain, he's your fear
Please remember, my son
What I've taught you ain't much
It is God who will take you from here

Well, I cannot deny
That the Lord might exist
But he ain't quite the problem
To the answers we've missed

Just don't base your whole life
Off of one bad disguise
You never know behind which mask he's lookin'

And if it is comfort or peace
In religion you seek
And it makes you feel whole
Then it worked, don't ya think?

We could argue and scream
Paint each other obscene
But I have recently known
That it don't matter
