Description
This is a re-mix via Ozone 3 of a song of 3 years standing and this is the previous description i wrote, which still stands to this day.... probably always will.
( Just had a good beat going after I chopped up some loops and had an idea for some lyrics in the form of yet another poem I wrote many years ago. I substituted a couple of words and moved others around (such as the chorus) so as not to come across as a religious fanatic and so that the words would fit the song better. It's just saying that the bad things in this world are nothing to do with God or any other being.....just the wickedness in Man. Quite a lively beat after my last song.) Hope you like it this time round too.

Lyrics
Faith.
1.


How can a God with so much love do such things as these?
I’ve heard this said so many times, by those who would ‘believe’,
But Satan rules in People now; on them the blame should lie.
Greed the cause of many wars, when Oh, so many die
Chorus
Jealousy and hate and greed, are the devils tools, and more of this we’re sure to see while in this world he rules.
Verse 2
No matter if we die or how, slowly or in pain.
Surely we’ll be born again if our Love remains.
I’ve heard folk say so many times “I’m afraid to die” but Oh!
How scared? What pain before our birth? Only God could know.
Chorus………….
Verse3
We’re here to gain experience, be tested of our faith. If after all life’s ups and downs, His love we still embrace,
Then dying is a small thing, a token, to compare, with wondrous things we’ll see and learn, when life with Love we share.
Chorus…………
Verse4
So what of those whose faith has fled? The ones who say” What’s dead is dead”.
They’re loosing out not knowing of the truth. (Tell them brother)
They praise themselves and all their deeds, as though they’ve solved all peoples’ needs,
Telling no one of their mis-spent youth (So tell it to me brother)
Chorus………….
Verse 5
How can a God with so much love do such things as these?
I’ve heard this said so many times, by those who would ‘believe’,
But Satan rules in People now; on them the blame should lie.
Greed the cause of many wars, when Oh so many die
Ad Lib

Love this all the way my friend. The lyrics tell it like it is and really have a message that needs hearing, and you musical arrangement is so good it'll keep them listening to the end.
