  • Lyrics: So, my brother says God is a flat-butted, crew-cutted, linebacker A macho-man babe hijacker Panting at the line of scrimmage He makes God in his own image And I don't begrudge him that But his is a God who hates all fags Jews, Hindus and kids in rags The bible can thump like a big bass drum 'Til every single sacred cow come Home, I know where that's at (Chorus) God is Wide (3x) You can't get around him to the other side You can't outrun him and you sure can't hide So my brother says, say what you will, and I don't really care what you do It's your life and it's up to you Then he blinks his eye, (which is true sky-blue) Puts his arms around his daughter, turns to view the tube Jumps 'n cheers when his team rocks Then there's the God who, with open arms Is the God of the family farms Inhabits the fields and the flowers and the barns Smiles when the Missus darns Her husband's socks (Chorus) So my brother says, you know that I don't like to fight But I think I know what's wrong from what's right Whatever some people may do or say You can't tell me it's okay It ain't no way to be Then there's the God who lives in every tree Is she the one who created me? Easter, waking up the spring I'm not sure to whom I should sing Or from whom I should flee (Chorus) So my brother, he jumps in to his shiny car Though he never seems to drive too far To the PTA, to the voting booth To get a filling for his sweet tooth He drives to the mall Where there's a God of neon, a God of light A god who brightens frightening night A God who's gonna makes all things right Awesome power and might This be the true God after all? (Chorus) (2x) So my brother says
