Ian Hunter — God (Take 1)

(Ian Hunter)
God said to me «Gonna kick your ass — ‘cos all you do is ask ask ask
All that energy looking for me when I’m sitting here inside you — plain to see
How I built you cell for cell gave you sights to see — gave you tales to tell
Even let you help yourself for a while — to take some weight off this busy child»
I said to God «I found you out — I know what this world is all about!»
God said «Stop — don’t scramble your brain — my opponent’s been messing you around again
See him and me are enemies and we play little games for galaxies
And he’s inside you — ‘n I am too — so here we are — just the three of you»
«Oh we made mistakes — too many cards — but making human beings can be hard
A God gets tired of playing so much chess — he wishes his God would get him out of his mess»
I said to God «What’s it like to die» He said «It’s as plain as the sea and sky
Conception was him and me and you — when your batteries fade we all just move on»
I said to God «Who’s winning this game — is the devil in front» He said «Is that his name
You know I’ve been so busy I never asked — I never looked up from this awesome task»
I said to God «What’s good ‘n bad» He said «It’s just something you’ve got to have
It don’t mean nothing to us up here — but your primitive people — you gotta have fear»
I said to God «Do I think for myself» He said I told you once you just help yourself
Don’t forget you’re composed of three, your thinking comes from him and me»
I said to God «How big are you, is there a religion — is it true
How big’s the universe — is time — the same for you as my life is to mine»
God said «If all the things that made worlds float — were all to part — then you would note
The size of him and the size of me — and that’s how big we both shall be»
He said «The universe is small — just like some fortune-teller’s ball
And we both sit down — and we play the game — when somebody wins it all starts again»
«There’s no religion — you did that — it helps to keep your little leaders fat
Like faith ‘n superstition stay — to help you pass the time away
But when you talk of time and life — it makes me think of circles, heights
Expansion is the clue — your dreams — are nearer than you’ve ever been»
«You see my little toy to think — is from two bowls of wine to drink
Don’t take too much or you may drown — behave yourself — see you around…»
