XTC-Dear God

XTC es una banda musical británica nacida a partir del movimiento punk de finales de los años 70. Aunque XTC no ha sido un grupo de fama multitudinaria, su influencia se ha dejado sentir en un buen número de bandas, que directa o indirectamente se han dejado seducir por las peculiares composiciones del grupo de Swindon. Grupos como Blur, Máximo Park, Young Knives Dogs die in hot cars revelan retazos de XTC.

Y con ustedes DEAR GOD

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.
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 the father, son and holy ghost,
Is just somebody’s unholy hoax,
And if you’re up there you’ll perceive,
That my heart’s here upon my sleeve.
If there’s one thing I don’t believe in…
It’s you,
Dear god.

Del disco Skylarking para Virgin Records, editado en 1986, siendo Andy Partridge el autor de la controversial letra y la música de XCT.
