(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 Im 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 - dont scramble your brain - my opponents been messing you around again
See him and me are enemies and we play little games for galaxies
And hes 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 "whats it like to die" he said "its 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 "whos winning this game - is the devil in front" he said "is that his name
You know Ive been so busy I never asked - I never looked up from this awesome task"
I said to God "whats good n bad" he said "its just something youve got to have
It dont 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
Dont forget youre 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 bigs 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 thats how big we both shall be"

He said "the universe is small - just like some fortune-tellers ball
And we both sit down - and we play the game - when somebody wins it all starts again"

"theres 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 youve ever been"

"you see my little toy to think - is from two bowls of wine to drink
Dont take too much or you may drown - behave yourself - see you around..."
