Ian Hunter - God (Take 1) Lyrics

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"

I said to God "Who`s winning this game - is the devil in front" He said "Is that his name
You know I`ve been so busy I never asked - I never looked up from this awesome task"
I said to God "What`s good `n bad" He said "It`s just something you`ve got to have
It don`t mean nothing to us up here - but your primitive people - you gotta have fear"

I said to God "Do I think for myself" He said I told you once you just help yourself
Don`t forget you`re composed of three, your thinking comes from him and me"
I said to God "How big are you, is there a religion - is it true
How big`s the universe - is time - the same for you as my life is to mine"
God said "If all the things that made worlds float - were all to part - then you would note
The size of him and the size of me - and that`s how big we both shall be"

He said "The universe is small - just like some fortune-teller`s ball
And we both sit down - and we play the game - when somebody wins it all starts again"

"There`s no religion - you did that - it helps to keep your little leaders fat
Like faith `n superstition stay - to help you pass the time away
But when you talk of time and life - it makes me think of circles, heights
Expansion is the clue - your dreams - are nearer than you`ve ever been"

"You see my little toy to think - is from two bowls of wine to drink
Don`t take too much or you may drown - behave yourself - see you around..."
