Found this song online; I like the lyrics alot; download the song and sing along; the artist is XTC


hope you got 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!

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 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
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 that
Father, Son and Holy Ghost is just somebody's unholy hoax,
and if you're up there you'd perceive that my heart's here upon
my sleeve. If there's one thing I don't believe in

it's you....

There's a really good cover version of Dear God by Sarah McLachlan that was produced for the House M.D. soundtrack. Much prefer Sarah McLachlan's version; it was very well done!

It's a classic. I heard it first on the Infidel Guy show a few years ago.

This song has been covered a lot. Tricky did a cover on a collaboration CD as well. The Sarah McLachlan cover wasn't produced for house, it's on her B-sides and Rarities CD which is I believe at least 10 years old. Either way, It's the best version.
