God

Album: 22 Dreams (2008)
  • And I looked up and I spoke to God
    And God said look at you, don't look at me
    You only call on me when you need me
    And when you don't, you hardly think of me at all

    I don't enter your head for weeks at a time
    And the times I do are in your despair that you created and not I
    And still you look up at me in such pleading terms
    That's how I kinda come to know you

    But don't look at me look at you
    Don't look at me look at you

    And every night I pray to God
    Please save the lives of those I love and take me instead
    If you really need someone to keep you company
    On that golden chair in the glare

    Bring your guns to the table and recite your prayer
    Lose all your hatred if you are to pray in there
    The temple you're seeking is in front of your nose
    Because the message you're giving is doing nothing for those

    Seek and you shall find
    Seek
    Seek and you shall find
    Seek

    The oldest is the young
    The youngest the oldest
    The oldest is the young
    The youngest the oldest

    The oldest is the young
    The youngest the oldest
    The oldest is the young
    The youngest the oldest
    The oldest is the young
