Antigod - Lyrics by Franks Enemy

Up front I say nothing is owed to me
And there's no doubt about God's power and love that be
I don't blame Satan if I make a wrong choice
I've got the Bible if I need God's voice
To be deserving of retribution
Is not religious persecution
If God has to do a job that He has for me
It's not a miracle it's His mercy
Would you say
I'm anti-
God these days?
Things I took for blessings turned out to be thorns
Things I took for fiery darts turned out to bless me more
I found I had to watch my prayers-they might come true
To make me grow I need to be broken too
Will I be happy to rejoice in His day?
Regardless of whatever comes my way?
After so many have run away?
In the face of all the doubt and pain?
Would you say
I'm anti-
God these days?
Up front I say nothing is owed to me
No magic prayer carpets to prosperity
My highest hope is the martyr's death
God in His wisdom probably won't put me to that test
Would you say
I'm anti-
God these days?
