The Lyrics

If God spent as much time making our lives pleasant as he does making us miserable, the churches would be overflowing every Sunday. More and more people are losing their faith....and I am one of them. What kind of being could create such a beautiful amazing world and then let it go to crap? My luck sucks and the only recourse I have is to express my misfortune in a parody song. Makes me feel better. If your luck sucks too, you'll feel empathy here. If your luck is worse, you have my sincere sympathy. God loves you less than he does me, which ain't much.... And if you're a Holy Roller and this offends you----tough....it's a free country.
Car shows, beach days every year; I watch the weather, shake with fear
Whenever summertime is here….
I look at clouds that way.
But God? He plays games with the sun, He makes it rain on all my fun
So many things I would have done but God got in my way.

I've looked at God from all sides now,
He’s good and bad, and still I know
It’s God who slams me through the wall
I really don't trust God… at all.

Holy Rollers full of zeal, the Psalms & Gospels make them feel
that all their fairy tales are real; The Bible says to pray…..
But now it's just a cruel joke. I see Him laughing when I choke
Religion—only mirrors & smoke, don't waste your time on Sunday.

I've looked at church from all sides now,
A vacant house, and still somehow
The church is like an empty hall
I don’t like goin’ to church at all.

Years and years of fearing God... today "I curse You" right out loud,
He always kicks me when I’m down…, I look at Christ that way.
But now my life's a monkey's cage; my luck has put me in constant rage.
Your time is wasted; nothing's gained by praying every day.

I've looked at Christ from all sides now,
From high and low, and still I know
It's Christ who’s causing my downfall.
I really don't trust Christ….. at all.

One needn't have to be a "Holy Roller" to be disappointed in God. Two of my best Christian books are "Disappintment with God" by Phillip Yancy and "When God Doesn't Make Sense" by Dr. Dobson. No one has the answer to all the "WHY???" in life. God doesn't promise to fix everything and to do our will, but He does promise to carry us through or if death, to be there with us. I am dying and am angry at God for so many things lost in life. But I am not afraid to die and go home to eternity...
