Lyrics

No God Good Enough For You
© Bill Burnett
When you blur the line dividing wrong from right
Can you trust in the guidance of your appetite?
Can you tell if you are standing in the dark or in the light
When there's no God good enough for you
No God good enough for your
Can you tell if you are standing in the dark or in the light when there's no God good enough for you
So you search until you stumble on an ancient holy map
And you spread that brittle parchment like a napkin on your lap
Do you tremble at the power or just laugh at all the crap?
When there's no God good enough for you
No God good enough for you
Do you tremble at the power or just laugh at all the crap
When there's no God good enough for you
You think I'm preaching a sermon here
You think I'm pointing a finger
But there's no lesson we're learning here
The mists may rise but the mysteries linger on
They linger on and on
So you feel a holy spirit swirling round your little shack
Do you throw the door wide open or just open it a crack
Is there any book can tell you what's a rule and what's a fact
When there's no God good enough for you
No God good enough for you
You just have to keep on dealing and hope the deck's not stacked when there's no God good enough for you
