  1. dear god, hope you get 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 heard loud and clear
    we all need a big reduction in 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 us 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

    i won't believe in heaven or hell
    no saints, no sinners, no devil as well
    no pearly gates, 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 the same the whole world 'round
    the hurt i see helps to compound
    the father, son and holy ghost
    is just somebody's unholy hoax
    and if you're up there you'll perceive
    that my heart's here upon my sleeve
    if there's one thing i don't believe in

    it's you
  2. youtube yorumlarından biri durumu güzel özetlemiş;

    "atheist anthem."

    önemli not: müzikal anlamda, kendimi dinlemekten alamıyorum. bir ara bu parçanın yasaklandığını hatırlıyorum. yamulmuyorsam 90'lara kadar bir yasak söz konusu idi; 95'te cover yapılmıştı.

    edit piaf: cover olan halini buldum sanırım; fakat orijinali kadar etkileyici değil kanımca:
