I Believe You're Not There

They tell me You live in that big temple with bigger security
But I believe You're not there
They tell me You'll only see people who walk bare feet and wait for hours
But I believe You're not that unfair
They tell me You like blocking the traffic and blaring the music
But I believe that's not Your style
They tell me You can be won over by keeping hungry on Tuesdays
But I believe that will only prove futile

They tell me You love it when we share praises about You on Facebook
But I believe You're not that pretentious
They tell me You'd rather not meet women who're menstruating
But I believe you're far more judicious
They tell me You're inventing new ways to win people back to You
But I believe You're not that desperate
They tell me You only reward people who're ready to pledge loyalty to You
But I believe loyalty and love are not commensurate
They tell me You send those who do bad stuff to hell
But I believe You display better acumen
They tell me You have a big appetite for the good stuff and the bad
But I believe it just makes You more human
They tell me You have a thing for self-righteous priests and retarded rituals
But I believe You just don't care

They tell me You live in that big temple with bigger security
But I believe You're not there.

Nicely captured all the hypocrisies that exist when it comes to God and Religion.
