How much must I curse your name
And put your beliefs to shame
Before you prove yourself
And end this life?

End this life

And I’ll say a fucking prayer
Because I know it won’t be answered

Where is your god? (2x)
Where is your fucking god?

And even though I don't believe in you
I pray for the day (2x)
That you end this life

So please
Take me
Away

I want the hand of god
To come and strike me down (2x)

Where is your god? (2x)
Where is your fucking god?

For all the prayers that go unanswered (2x)
Why do you think that is?
For the families that waste their time
Open your eyes

And all your prayers will go
Unanswered
Why do you think that is?
For the families that waste their time
Open your fucking eyes

    This pretty much means "Get real" to all the Christains. Seriously, if anyone seriously believes theres some magical being controlling everything, then youre on crack. lol. God is as real as Santa Claus. I stopped believing in a god when i watched 2 747s smash into the world trade center and ruin my childhood. Where was this "god" then?

    God dammit. It's not about whether there is one or not. It's how people instill their faith in god, saying they'll pray for you for example i'm atheist and when people pray to me, its a sign of disrespect. I can't recall all the times i've prayed for things and nothing has happened. You are a god, an all knowing being, you can make decisions for yourself which in a way have an effect on everyone. You people are bogus

    Well all i have to say is that there has got to be something a up above looking out for me, i don't kno what it is but if there wasn't i would have been dead a long time ago. And all of you that say you hate god and that its bullshit i respect your opinion, but you all have one thing in common. You gave up when shit got rough

    I believe his statement "where is your god" i have said many prayers as a child and none were answered. This song shows how god is useless and our messages to him will never be answered.
