God is in the Radio
I thought I saw him on the video
A trance is keeping him under
I know that god is in the radio
Checkin the station
A narcotic from me to you
Just a caught in the medium
I know you hear it, I hear it too
It's everywhere that I go

You come back another day
And you do no wrong

The say the devil is paranoid
Always trying to cover
But god is leakin through the stereo
Between the station to station
You believe it, I know you do
You won't admit it or say so
I know that god is in the radio
Just repeating the slogan

You come back another day
And you do no wrong
Come back another day
And do no wrong
Available On: Songs for the Deaf (2002)

Alternate Titles
This song was called "God," "God is Radio," and "God is on the Radio" at various times from 2001 until the album came out.

"'God' has a pulse, parasitic drums lead a steady driving bass and all my actions are defined in these moments by two chords that enforce the low end. This is a guitar lap dance, Homme shaking it against a whisper of the snare that drops away into nothing before reminding me what I'm here for-raising the level of the album to the classic blues-driven metal jam." - from Movie Poop Shoot's Review
