"Sure God's all-powerful, but does he have lips? Whoa"

Dear God, how have you been then?
I'm not fine, fuck pretending
All of this death you're sending
Best throw some free heart mending
Invite you in my heart, then
When done, my sins forgiven?
This God of mine relaxes
World dies, I still pay taxes

Can I be as my God am?
Can you be as God am?
Can I be as my God am?
God of all my God am

So Lord, I see you grinning
Must be grand always winning
How proud are you being able
To gather faith from fable?

Can I be as my God am?
Can you be as God am?
Can I be as my God am?
God of all my God am

God am
My God am
God am
God

All the respect I'm giving
Shared strength acquired by living
All blooming life you're feeding
Can't hide sick ones you're weeding

Can I be as my God am?
Can you be as God am?
Can I be as my God am?
God of all my God am

God am
God am
God am
God am

    General CommentI also want to point out too that in the beginning.. "Gods all powerful but does he have lips" is suppose to indicate "dialogue" between him and the "smack" which he refers to as "GOD' similar dialogue like in the song "Dirt" I know sometimes I hear people give different meanings.. and that's ok cause all songs are open to interpretation .. but its important to understand 90% of Alice in Chains music is based around Media response, Depression & Drug Dependency.. Layne stated in many interviews that was his message .. also reference - God smack, A Little Bitter,
