my god lyrics – jethro tull

“my god”

people — what have you done —
locked him in his golden cage.
made him bend to your religion —
him resurrected from the grave.
he is the god of nothing —
if that’s all that you can see.
you are the god of everything —
he’s inside you and me.
so lean upon him gently
and don’t call on him to save you
from your social graces
and the sins you used to waive.
the bl**dy church of england —
in chains of history —
requests your earthly presence at
the vicarage for tea.
and the graven image you-know-who —
with his plastic crucifix —
he’s got him fixed —
confuses me as to who and where and why —
as to how he gets his kicks.
confessing to the endless sin —
the endless whining sounds.
you’ll be praying till next thursday to
all the gods that you can count.
