Música Dionisíaca da Semana #8: Dear God

Conheci esta música tem um tempo já e não tinha como não curtir. É de uma banda chamada XTC que eu, na minha infinita ignorância musical, nunca tinha ouvido falar. Basicamente ela se propõe a questionar deus e seus feitos, a bíblia, a crença em divindades e a própria responsabilidade dos homens sobre suas próprias vidas. Espero que curtam.

Dear God,
I Hope you got the letter and
I pray that you can make it better down here.
I don't need 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 amounts of
But 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've noticed but
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this Book.
Us crazy humans wrote it; you should take a look.
And all the people that you made in your image
Still believin' 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 in...

I won't believe in Heaven and Hell,
No saints, no sinners, no Devil as well,
No pearly gates, no thorny crown.
You're always lettin' 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 perceive
That my heart's here upon my sleeve.
If there's one thing I don't believe in...

It's you,
Dear God.
