Seems an intrinsic part of human nature to have a concept of god, it's been around for as long as humanity, so it makes you wonder. Apart from wars, religion has also given many people hope and inspiration, and has greatly helped to organize societies along common values and principles.

With the Steven Wilson 5.1 mix coming out and those involved doing press, the ill will still continues.

Among other things, Partridge has said that Todd is a good arranger but a not-so-good engineer.

Todd has said that Andy is a prick...

I think this song is MUCH more complex than that.

Of course, he rails against God as nonexistent - which is nonsense if he really didn't believe. He'd simply walk away rather than waste his breath.
Instead, it's a petulant, impotent - but completely self-aware - frustration that he doesn't want to believe, but can't help himself. And so he's angry. and disappointed.

He half-heartedly includes all the usual "you don't exist" arguments, while still addressing God directly.

It's some really well done lyricism.

Rundgren and XTC didn't get along during this, but he obviously took their songs and helped them create something great.

Oh come on. The Michaelson-Morley experiments long ago disproved the existence of all imaginary metaphysical beings. Incidentally also disproving a ( false ) logic/science tenet that one cannot prove "something does not exist".  Fascinating stuff, but dry if you are expecting sensationalism.

Dear Faithful,

Your blind and ignorant faith reveals to you a live creator- all-loving, all-knowing, all-truthful, and never wrong.  Meanwhile there is never any escape from the fact that evil exists only in the human mind, that filth that was "created in the likeness" of some supremely intelligent deity that you somehow believe has existed for all time.  It was a mistake for your god to place you and a fucking female in the earthly garden.  Or was the so-called "god" so powerless to prevent a snake?  And so it was- your poisoned minds would think only to burn the garden for the sake of innovation, consumption, and procreation. The land and the animals die slowly as the skies continue to darken. Fuck you, all you idiots, and fuck your idiotic god.  You will not be forgiven.

Skylarking is one of those albums I always want to listen to all the way through.

Great production by Todd Rundgren.

I couldn't agree with the lyrics of this song any more than what they state. Perfect.

                       I thought the song was about me?
                         God reads it, and reads it well.
                Dear God, Does post-carboxwall do work?

Makes me laugh that some folks in the US of A talk about being a 'liberal' as if it's some kind of affliction and not just an opinion. Hell we even have a Liberal Party up here in Canadia...and notice the big 'L'.

One of the best B Sides ever ( Grass was the A Side ) which ended up on the CD version of Skylarking thanks in part to US college radio playing the crap out of it. This band put out some incredible music over their lifespan. Their high point in my mind being English Settlement featuring two songs that would give Dear God a run for its money and ability to polemicize - Knuckle Down and Melt The Guns.
