Mr God

a little piece of rock came down one bright and shiny day
to fall upon this earthly ground from many million miles away
and the people from the institute, they took it in their stride
they said “it came from the planet Mars and its got life inside”

and what I want to know is what’re you gonna do now, Mister God?

Galileo was a scientist who made his matters worse
when he said the earth was not the center of the universe
“oh yes it is,” they said, “and that’s where it’s gonna stay”
and they arrested him for heresy and jailed him away

Darwin had a thought, he could not keep it to himself
that he was once a monkey and so was everybody else
“but man is in the image,” they said, “and the image must be true
so if we were once a monkey, god was once a monkey too”

way down in Arizona land, in a sacred native place
they’re building them a telescope for staring into space
and the church is there to bankroll, to help and not to hurt them
should the aliens be heathens they’d like to be the first to convert them

and what I want to know is what’re you gonna do now, Mister God?

in matters of reality it’s always touch and go
some would like to dam it up and some would let the waters flow
but it’s a simple calculation when the final score is in
between the rock and the water, the water always wins

and what I want to know is what’re you gonna do now, Mister God?
