After a hard days creation / he goes for a nap in his star / but as he was falling asleep he heard somebody speak / it was his dear papa / he said these forests are all well and good son / but there’s nowhere to park my car / god turned over in bed shrugged his shoulders and said / it's all I got so far / so he built himself some minions just to have someone appreciate his art / but they burned down the forests trashed his little world and for it / blamed him for the most part / now even god prays for the weekend / he was here from the start / on the last day he’ll go sailing away in his wooden ark

But it begs the question / how did we get this far / why did he build the river / was his throat so parched / why would anyone put this light right into the dark / then go on and make this world make no sense / at all

So he locked himself in his bedroom / and said man oh man am I pissed / man has not only taken an axe to peace and harmony now he says I don’t even exist / so he build himself a tsunami / to teach the little guys some respect / but just as he was letting it loose his dad walked into the room and said / what the hell is this

Now the universe is vast and complex / so I won’t try and fit it all in one verse / but let’s just say for the almighty and his monkey menagerie / things only kept getting worse / I’m told never work with animals and children / working with man is the same / always whining / lord tell me what can I do or I’ll blame all my misfortune on you / it’s enough to drive any man insane
