Where Was God?

For Newtown, Connecticut

Children were killed

Where was God?
'Cause don't you think it massively odd
That innocent sons and daughters are dead
Because of a guy so sick in the head?

Kindergarten kids will soon

Be placed beneath the sod
And living ones still scream through dreams
So tell me, where was God?

I think that God

Weeps the same
As when his son accepted blame
For every wrong we'll ever do
And Jesus died for me and you

God didn't stop the angry mob

When with their clubs they came
And gave the giver of breath his death
I think God weeps the same

Truth is...God refuses to be a puppet master, so there will always be horrible things happening until time itself comes to an end. But just as he did with the crucifixion of Jesus, God still squeezes good out of even the worst that humankind can dish out.
