God Thinks

Album: Almost Human (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • Voltaire has claimed at shows that this song was written while he was on a plane. The flight was delayed for several hours because of weather. After a while a woman stood up and said that if they all prayed together that God would hear their prayers and the weather would clear up, at which point he stood up and stole her thunder by going on about how God has infinite wisdom, but that his plans were an inconvenience to the people on the plane. >>
