I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made bad
I love my God
God made me, yeah

But I don't want to pray to my maker
I just want to be what I see
Not just who I am but the pink and darling man
And a five mile sky over me
Help me to the sun, hey I'm looking everywhere
See I'm looking to become not the prayer but the prayer
And now don't want to pray (no)
I say I don't want to pray (no)
And now I don't want to pray (mhmm)
I don't want to pray

I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made bad
I love my God
God made, God made

But I don't want to pray to my maker
I just want to be feeling free
Not like in a book or the leaves and trees that shook
From a word that means only not a thing
Pardon pardon mom
What I'm saying isn't fair
See I'm looking to become not the prayer but the prayer
And now I don't want to pray (no)
I say I don't want to pray (no)
Hey uh I don't want to pray (no)
You don't want to pray

Not much good to talk here oughta walk it
Not much good to take that out of you
We are born from giving in from guarding our sins
Yeah I promise you my friends
All the dies will live again

Guarding guarding mom
What I'm saying isn't fair
See I'm looking to become not the prayer but the prayer
And now I don't want to pray
You say I don't want to pray
Oh now I don't want to pray
You don't want to pray

I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made bad
I love my God
God made me

    Stop wasting your life praying, don't dedicate your life to god, dedicate your life to life. If god is omniscient, ommnipresent etc etc, then why does he need people to pray to him? Praise him? Stroke his ego? Why does he need droves and generations of humans to jerk him off for eternity? Sure he didn't make us to live meaningful, free lives?
