Dear God
Hope you got the letter and...
I pray you can make it better down here
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer

But all the people that you made in your image
See them starving on their feet
'Cause they don't get enough to eat
From God

I can't believe in you
Dear God
Sorry to disturb you but...
I feel that I should be hear loud and clear

We all need a big reduction
In the amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image
See them fighting in the street

'Cause they can't make opinions meet about God
I can't believe in you
Did you make disease
And the diamond blue?

Did you make mankind
After we made you?
And the devil too?
Dear God,

Don't know if you noticed but...
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book
And as crazy humans wrote it
You should take a look

And all the people that you made in your image
Still believing that junk is true
Well I know it ain't and so do you, dear God
I can't believe in

I don't believe in
I won't believe in heaven and hell
No saints no sinners no devil as well
No pearly gate no thorny crown

You're always letting us humans down
The wars you bring
The babes you drown
Those lost at sea and never found

And it's all the same the whole world round
The hurt I see helps to compound
That Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody's unholy hoax

And if you're up there you'd perceive
That my heart's here upon my sleeve
If there's one thing I don't believe in...
It's you, dear God.
