It’s not a good time for God
It’s not a good time
atheists deplore him
hedonists ignore him
men with bombs adore him

agnostics rarely need
think tanks never heed
orthodoxy creeds him
It’s not a good time for God
Not a good time

Singing Alle, Alle, Alle, Alle Allah
Singing Alle, Alle, Alle, Alle Allah

It’s not a good time for God
It’s not a good time
the right wing have defaced
the left wing have displaced
bigotry’s disgraced him

apocalyptics claim
prosperous preachers tame
perverted clerics shame him
and it’s not a good time for God
just not a good time

Singing Alle, Alle, Alle, Alle Allah
Singing Alle, Alle, Alle, Alle Allah

It’s not a good time for God
just not a good time
fashion’s sanitised
style accessorised
robes and rings disguise him

mysticism hides
sophisticates deride
evolution chides him

empty churches lost him
close friends double-crossed him
the crucifixion cost him
it’s never been a good time for God

Singing Alle, Alle, Alle, Alle Allah
Singing Alle, Alle, Alle, Alle Allah
