"Halo" as written by and Steven/balch Wilson....
God is in my fingers
God is in my head
God is in the trigger
God is in the lead.

God is freedom
God is truth
God is power
God is proof
God is fashion
God is fame
God gives meaning
God gives pain

You can be right like me
We've got it all
Your righteous soul
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me

I'm not the same as you
Cause I've seen the light
And I'm gaining in height now
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me

I've got a halo 'round my head

God is on the cell phone
God is on the net
God is in the warning
God is in the threat

God is freedom
God is truth
God is power
God is proof
God is fashion
God is fame
God gives meaning
God gives pain

You can be right like me
We've got it all
Your righteous soul
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me

I'm not the same as you
Cause I've seen the light
And I'm gaining in height now
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me

(Cause I've got a halo)
I've got a halo 'round my head

You can be right like me
We've got it all
Your righteous soul
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me

I'm not the same as you
Cause I've seen the light
And I'm gaining in height now
I've got a halo 'round me
I've got a halo 'round me

I've got a halo 'round my head
Cause I've got a halo 'round my head

    Song MeaningI just read an old interview with Steve Wilson on a german music website.
    Asked about this song he says this (translation by me, annotations in brackets):

    Question:
    It says "God is in my fingers god is in my head" on a track from your new album. Delusions of grandeur?

    Answer:
    This is from "Halo", which is one of the songs that I've written throughout the last years and that centers around forms of organized religion. I am not a big fan of organized religion. In this special case, the text speaks(?) from the perspective of a person who is self-righteous concerning his religion.
    The king of guy, who tries to tell you that his life is better, because of his faith founding some kind of superiority you do not have. (i am not sure if this is translated accurate. he said that the person believes their faith founds superiority)
    One of my former friends converted to the Reborn Christians. It is difficult to keep up a friendship with these people after they passed over into "another world".
    They start to patronize you, because they belive to have something you do not: faith, knowledge...

    Question:
    The answer to everything?

    Answer:
    Yeah, exactly. I always perceived that as insulting, but it happened to me and my friend and thus inspired "Halo". Whenever i had to deal with him, he acted as if he walked a halo. (difficult to translate: the german interview makes a wordplay with "walk a dog")
    He made me feel as if i wasn't on the same level as he was.
    He was full of that conviction. (i am really uncertain about this - literally it says: "he was infused with this conviction/belief")
