Lyrics
I saw God in the desert
In some burning bushes.
I heard God on the mountain
In a cave of whispers,

Moving over the water,
Gathering the fishes,
Watching sheep in the meadow
While the shepherds slumbered.

I know that it really means nothing.
I know that it never can happen.

People reading the Bible
Like it's holy scripture.
Taking words out of context,
Now devoid of meaning.

Using heaven for hatred - almost universal.
Ignorance is the Devil.
Knowledge was the first sin.

I know that it really means nothing.
I know that it never can happen.

Why won't anyone listen
When the Prophet's talking?
No more miracle-makers,
Not since television.

Damned to live in the present.
This eternal moment.
Blessed gift of existence.
Clinging to a mystery.

I know that it really means nothing.
I know that it never can happen.
I know.
