  • God of all things, god of small things, god of power and might
    Did you really make the world in seven days and seven nights?
    'Cause I don't know if you exist or if I even care
    But when I lay me down to sleep, I'd like somebody there

    'Cause it's hard to make sense of this all
    And it gets harder with each passing day
    But I believe in little things and things I cannot see
    In science and the saints and all that stuff like gravity
    Not that sentimental fairy tale to keep us in our place
    'Cause I have seen you here when no one else is looking
    A calm and silent bliss
    A calm and silent bliss

    All your people do these days is argue, fuss and fight
    Then they fight some more and wipe the blood and say, "At least we know we're right"
    How foolishly, how foolishly all good things come undone
    How silently, how silently, and now we all are done

    But it's hard to make sense of it all
    And it gets harder with each passing day
    But I believe in little things and things I cannot see
    In science and the saints and all that stuff like gravity
    Not some sentimental fairy tale to keep us in our place
    'Cause I have seen you here when no one else is watching
    A strange and silent bliss
    A strange and silent bliss

    God of all things, god of small things, god of loss and hope
    God of people struggling and people who can't cope
    Do you keep your blessings for the rich, the pious and their guns?
    Or if you're half the man I hope, you root for everyone
    You root for everyone
