Songs Of Doubt:
'Dear God' by XTC
Your site is great, thank you. I had a very good time reading
through. Now, there is a song by a group called XTC, called "Dear
God" with great lyrics, see below, also if you want to download the
song which is also musically very strong you can do it from here:
The lyrics (read thought, punch line at end)...
all the best, Keren
hope you got the letter and
sorry to disturb you but
Did you make
don't know if you've noticed but
I won't believe
in heaven and hell
one thing I don't believe in

Thanks for this!
We published "Dear God" in an earlier print edition [September, 1999] of Positive Atheism, as part of our ongoing theme of Songs Of Doubt, previously called Atheism In Music.
Since this song is almost impossible to format into lines and verses, and since I spent a lot of time formatting the print edition, I will format your letter according to the way I formatted the song in the print edition.
