As cruel as Heliogabalus,
he’ll light the fire to hear us scream.
He won’t explain doodleysquat to us,
but wants telegraphic messages on everything.
It’s not anything they teach you in church.
Sometimes I wonder about the creator of the universe

Prostitutes surrender
to their pimps like
they’re surrendering to Jesus
while beautifying their insides
with bad chemicals causing suicide, theft, murder, insanity or worse.
Sometimes I wonder about the creator of the Universe.

Production is breaking
the earth before it can recharge,
and the things that we’re making
are lousy by and large.
Washday products, cat food and pop.
Sometimes I wonder when will it all stop.

Someplace where you’d need
a rubber vagina for lonesomeness
ain’t any place to be
but there doesn’t seem much choice for us.
It's not very fair. It's a little absurd.
Sometimes I wonder about the creator of the universe

I don’t know what it means
all this suffering collectively.
We could be all machines
set to love defectively.
There ain’t no good answer; that’s just how it works.
Sometimes I wonder about the creator of the universe.
