My God Says

1st verse:
My Lord God said I can take their lives.
I can kill them and eat them and choose when they die.
They have no souls; I can take their lives.
Oh I tried to believe, but it didn’t seem right.

In the past we would eat them: we had to survive.
But today we don’t need meat to be strong and thrive.

Refrain:
The Lord teaches Pure Love and to kill without cause
Is not God, is not Love, so I’ll keep them alive.

2nd verse:
My Lord God says we can take their lives.
So we kill them and feast on them. I wondered why.
They have no souls, so let’s take their lives.
And so I did this too, but it didn’t seem right.

For in all of God’s creatures, there shines a bright light.
And I don’t need to put this light out to survive.

Refrain:
The Lord teaches Pure Love and to kill without cause
Is not God, is not Love, so I’ll keep them alive.
