I got the lyrics to "Dear God" from the Lyrics Server and found they were
somewhat incorrect.  Thought you all might be interested in the official
lyrics, if you haven't already seen them.

                             Dear God,
                  hope you got the letter, and...
              I pray you can make it better down here.
         I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
        but all the people that you made in your image, see
         them starving on their feet 'cause they don't get
           enough to eat from God, I can't believe in you

Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but... I feel that I should be heard
  loud and clear.  We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
 and all the people that you made in your image, see them fighting
   in the street 'cause they can't make opinions meet about God,
                       I can't believe in you

     Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?  Did you make
           mankind after we made you?  And the devil too!

    Dear God, don't know if you noticed, but... your name is on
  a lot of quotes in this book, and us crazy humans wrote it, you
    should take a look, and all the people that you made in your
image still believing that junk is true.  Well I know it ain't, and
     so do you, dear God, I can't believe in I don't believe in

   I won't believe in heaven and hell.  No saints, no sinners, no
  devil as well.  No pearly gates, no thorny crown.  You're always
     letting us humans down.  The wars you bring, the babes you
  drown.  Those lost at sea and never found, and it's the same the
     whole world 'round.  The hurt I see helps to compound that
     Father, Son and Holy Ghost is just somebody's unholy hoax,
  and if you're up there you'd perceive that my heart's here upon
        my sleeve.  If there's one thing I don't believe in

                       it's you... Dear God.
