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.
