I look around at all that's going on
I wonder if we'll ever be as one

Left on our own
in a world so sad
Oh, God is a deadbeat dad

He left this book to figure it all out
But we can't agree on what it's about

Some use it for good
Others use it for bad

Oh, God is a deadbeat dad.

We're all siblings in a house divided
Searching for the truth but, denied it.

Soon enough they'll come a day
Until then I'll just kneel and pray
I'll ask him for strength
and hope for the best

Oh, God is a deadbeat dad.
