The Lies (Draft 1)

The Lies (Draft 1)

Oh geez it hurts so much
hurts so much, sing the chorus now

hurts so much, yeah it
hurts so much

had a girl
and she went away

thought she’d be a goddess
and now she doesn’t love me
and neither does God.

He’s thrown me away
and she doesn’t believe in me

Sing it, sing it, sing it:

Oh geez it hurts so much
hurts so much, sing the chorus now

hurts so much, yeah it
hurts so much

Oh God, who is never around when I need you,
you are absent and irrelevant because you have no power in the real world.

You have no weapons against the evil that I see.
When I call for you, you never come.

You can not ever be seen as benevolent
when pain is so endless.

And this pain is such a hell
that I fear not more,

I just fear that
there has never been love
at all, and

existence is a lie.

Sing it, sing it, sing it:

Oh geez it hurts so much
hurts so much, sing the chorus now

hurts so much, yeah it
hurts so much

And nobody has
ever prayed for me —
I don’t even think she did

Love has gone away
and there’s nowhere to pray

There’s already hell here
and what would there be

I think I’d rather have a Goddess.

had a girl
and she went away

thought she’d be a goddess
and now she doesn’t love me
and neither does any God
of any kind or
any kindness, because I know

Oh geez it hurts so much
hurts so much, sing the chorus now

hurts so much, yeah it
hurts so much

If she is not a goddess
who is?

But anyway,
I don’t want to worship

I just want to love.
