"God Made Me" as written by and Harriet Wheeler David Gavurin....
Looking for an insult there's a trickle in my head
Seeing it's worth the effort I forgive myself
Talks that we had are becoming a blur
If only I could love my neighbour
Waiting here for the next time with a bottle in my hand
Doing it for the exercise I forget myself
The face thet you had is becoming a blur
But how was I supposed to know that?

Because God made me
That's all they told me before
And how about you?
And it's off to work we go
Now you can forget about a labour of love

It just won't wash anymore
We'd love to be good but we'd rather be bad
But how was I supposed to know that?

Because God made me
That's all they told me before
And how about you?
Because God made people
That was the luck of the draw
We do what we want

God made me
That's what they told me before
Who knows what they'll say today?
Because God made me for his sins
Imagine my eyes when I first saw
We can do what we want
How could I know?
How could I know about it?

    General CommentWow am surprised there was no comments for this song. The Sunday's are my first band crush and this song is one of my favorites. For me the point of the song is we are all human and make mistakes and some of those mistake frame the rest of our life.

    General CommentI played this song in the car once with an Atheist friend and he looked at me incredulously. He thought it was a Christian rock song because he was concentrating on the hook to much.

    God Made Me actually doesn't appear to be championing belief as much as it's apathetic towards it:

    "If only I could love my neighbor"

    "We'd love to be good but we'd rather be bad
    But how was I supposed to know that?"

    It almost seems like a cry for guidance, and more so than the general religious indoctrination:

    "God made me
    That's what they told me before
    Who knows what they'll say today?"

    So it's not really a pro-God song, nor is it claiming disbelief in one, but seems to point the finger at the concept of sinning (which comes from Religion, which is really just a bureaucracy that surrounds God, but isn't necessarily connected to one)

    "Imagine my eyes when I first saw
    We can do what we want"
