there's a man in Colorado who speaks for God
a father, he's really like a father to the young men of the town
bringing clarity and order with a booming voice
he's says don't bother to disrespect my daughter
I'll nail your dick right down

and in Southern California someone speaks for God
he says they're near it only if they hear it
we've got to get this out
pouring over analytics through his target lens
he says we make trends only when we make trends
and teach them to our friends

in Manhattan on the corner there's a Godly voice
says the creator aint coming back till later
he's left you with a choice
moving units through the margins coordinating wealth
he says decisions are for those who make decisions
you're fending for yourselves

there's someone in Minnesota who speaks for God
she says keep faith in the people in the system
we'll keep our faith with them
teaches the lame to lay down tells the captives stay
she says basically, we've really got to wean
everybody else

somewhere in a private meeting on the coast of Guam
they set the table and manage who is able
to follow and attend
it's a celebration dinner for those who speak for God
they say oh bless you, look at how he trusts you,
to carry out his will

in the middle of proceedings there's a sounding BOOM
there's witches clawing at the dishes
they snuck into the room
if you're thirsty there's a million ways to dig a well
you wretch you, can only blame yourself, you
you're all going to hell
you're all going to hell

I guess we're all going to hell

solitary mother Mary lifting hopeful prayers
yeah, we hear you, double-deacon dear, you
verbal dragon slayer

I was waking from a dream when the wolves moved in
they said your home is built on crumbling foam it's
slipping out to sea
but I'll chance the waves, so, thank you
let the rowing seize
I've got a weapon to end all of our suffering
when water's to our knees

peeking over circled wagons
as our best defense
how can you, double god-damn you
now our backs are to our friends

you feel something and you turn and face unstable Glen
he's staring through you, his mind has snapped right in two
and his trigger clicks again
and his trigger clicks again
(he speaks for God)
(he speaks for God)
and his trigger clicks again
(he speaks for God)
