God said to me "Gonna kick your *** - `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"
