Song Description

A satirical and somewhat subversive song about God and how religious belief undermines it that still embaces spiritualism.

Story Behind the Song

I was flying to Frankfurt Germany and writing in my journal while trying to fall asleep. I penned the lyric "God likes to fish in places like Maine and Wyoming - He is the all-knowing" and immediately knew I was onto something. The rest of the lyric and the music all followed from the first line.

Lyrics

God likes to fish in Maine and Wyoming
He is the all-knowing, he?s so carefree Verse I
God likes to play cards in Las Vegas
He drives a red Porsche, he?s six-foot-three

I WANT TO BE LIKE GOD Chorus
I want to be
I want to be

God likes to smoke herbs grown in Sonoma
They cure his glaucoma, they let him see Verse II
God never waits in lines at the airport
He flies his own transport, he travels free

(repeat chorus)

God never needs an alibi
He sees all with omniscient eyes Bridge
Maybe that?s why God gets high
It takes his mind off you and me
God?s really just a funny guy
He?ll trade a tooth for tooth or eye for eye
Shoot a thunderbolt down from the sky
To be unkind to you and me

God likes to have a beer with his buddies
He never studies and still gets ?A??s Verse III
At the Super Bowl God always watches
From luxury boxes and drinks champagne

(repeat chorus)
