Dear God, hope you get the letter and
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
See them starving on their feet
I can't believe in you
Dear God, sorry to disturb you but
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
See them fighting in the street
I can't believe in you
Did you make disease and the diamond blue?
And the Devil too!
Dear God don't know if you noticed but
And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look
Still believing that junk is true
Dear God
I don't believe
I won't believe in heaven or hell
No pearly gates, no thorny crown
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
And it's the same the whole world 'round
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
And if you're up there you'll perceive
If there's one thing I don't believe in
It's you
