Marillion - When I Meet God Lyrics




And if the bottle's no solution
Why does it feel so warm
And if that girl is no solution
Why did she feel so warm
And if to feel is no solution
Why do I feel
Why do I feel so tired
Why do I feel so broken
Why do I feel so outside
Why do I seem so blind
I'm so sick of feeling
It's ruined my life
If living rough is no solution
Why does it ease my mind
If looking back is no solution
Why are we all
Nothing but children
Children inside

Why do the Gods
Sit back and watch
So many lost
What kind of mother
Leaves a child in the traffic
Turning tricks in the dark
What kind of God?

I crawled around inside myself
It was a long way down
It was a mine and it was mine
And in the darkness
I saw a perfect mirror
Floating in space

When I meet God
I'm going to ask her
What makes her cry
What makes her laugh
Is she just stars and indigo gas
Does she know why
Love has no end
But it's dark-angel friend
Tearing women and men
Slowly apart

Stain
Don't do that
Scream
Don't do that
Fail
Never do that
Never do that
I want to go out
Don't do that
I want an adventure
Just stay..
I want
Just stay in
I want to make love

And if the bottle's no solution
Why does it feel so warm
And if looking back is no solution
Why are we all just children inside
And if to feel is no solution
Why does the whole damn world feel so broken
So outside and out-of-sorts

A perfect mirror
Floating in space
Waves and numbers
But oh, such beautiful numbers
And oh, such waves..

    Please, CHANGE VOCALIST!!!! ...Hogarth is a real torment!...Fish, Fish, Fish forever!!!!

    stephen haunch

    Have you heard fish try to sing in the last few years. Love him but the marillion family is too strong.

    Manner

    @stephen haunch Yes, I heard Fish singing, you're right, Fish has lost so much its voice! .. but the current singer is a real disaster "

    Very rare. Thank you and a nice year to all Marillion fans!

  25. Alexboy

    possibly my most admired rock band at this moment, I read of them since the 80s and I have listened to them since then, in Mexico it was not easy in those years to get their albums, consider them great and I am not mistaken, stop following them a little after the departure of Fish, however I must admit I am amazed with the work of H, I consider Rothery one of the best, I hope to see him next January 11 2019 here.

  26. Fernando Motta

    Muito bom!

  27. Андрей Симученко

    Молодость не пропьешь! Чудесно! Изысканно..."Рьяно"...

  30. ISRAEL ONE LOVE

    Salty tears made into oceans...Red clay upon bones joined together like a dog the bones In at GOD...just as light is called out from darkness. AND IT WAS SO!!! Faith choke the heart as it bleed soul which burst into sport. Looking out heavens window like children that want to go outside to PLAY...It must be fun out their we begs In to think apart from GOD WILL/SELF.FISHLY...That stopped us not because all that shall be, IS Right Now seen yet unseen it is universally FORGIVEN by Great Mercifullness granted us by THE HAND OF THE ONE AND ONLY CREATOR of it all..Our Heavenly Father above.

  31. TheoHouben1963 Houben

    Het maakt niet uit wat ze spelen het is altijd het is hemels wereld 's beste rock band.

  32. Fernanda Garcia

    minute 9:12 it is sublime

  33. Stephen Reeve

    Beautiful It helps my head.

  34. mrmsbhvn

    Yes-excellent sounds and show here, but for/to all those hating on Fish, and days past- I give you a show from 2002 i think it was.
    He does still have it. . . . i think anyways.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_cqtZFK6Z8&index=8&t=8233s&list=PLYwvjKB5AGr8V5Pn4wZ_nu1uAE7QQMAOO
    I love the new/H sounds, immensely- but Fish will always be my memories of the Marillion sound

  35. ATMOS Tracks

    So good !! Flying high ! Try this if you like to travel in deep emotions: https://youtu.be/0AINa5mYapU

  36. Blair McAlister

    Any one who cannot get into this song , this band, this awesomeness , should be Section 8 first thing tomorrow....this is insane :-)

  37. Human Being

    This song is a real life example of Romans 1. Marillon sees beautiful nature and they see logical immaterial concepts like numbers, they know God exists. But, with sin and a dislike of God they do not want to submit to Him. They are experiencing good gifts from God like sex, alcohol, feelings and are twisting them to rebel.

    We all have feelings of brokenness, we live in a fallen world. I have suffered from depression these last years myself. God often uses difficult situations to humble us and bring us to Him. Also, by the grace of God and with help of people we can overcome that feelings rule us, because they should not.

    This song assumes we are innocent, we are not. As stated before we know God exists and we choose sin. We are rebels, remember? But, God is in control. He does not just “sit back”. He has a purpose in saving some people and not others.

    Romans 9:19-21 - “One of you will say to me: “Then why does God still blame us? For who is able to resist his will?” But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?
    "

    This is a difficult thought, but it just shows how small we actually are, and how big God is. We seriously need to humble ourselves! If you are reading this that means you are alive, which means here is an opportunity to submit to God. Jesus Christ came to this earth and died for the sins of those who believe in Him. He took them on Himself! Your sin. He can legally cleanse you from your sins.

    Romans 3:23-24 - “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

    Philippians 2:6-8 – “Though he was in the form of God, [Jesus] did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”

    Titus 3:4-7 – “When the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

    Repent and believe! Today is the day :)

    You didn't even try to actually understand the song, did you? :-(

  38. ISRAEL ONE LOVE

    THIS shall be our new National Anthem Under GOD....Israel of GOD..............

    well I like it very much, but I just love music anyway

  43. Doug Scott

    When I meet God...I'll tell him that Steve Rothery is the best guitarist in the world. What an awesome sound; with Pete on Rickenbacker double neck and H on semi-acoustic.

  44. JRBL1A1

    First post in 6 years!!!

    I posted before the Chicago show in June 2012, and now I'm posting after the Chicago (St Charles) show in 2018. I've seen them a total of 8 times now (X2 in Chicago 2012, 3X in Montreal 2015, and 3X on their mini-tour in 2018), and I still cant get enough. I know there are others who have hit 100 shows, 70 shows, 30 shows, etc, who feel the same way.

    This band is phenomenal. Brilliant. My absolute favorite.

  45. Jesper Hellvik

    This one has stealingly become one of my favorite Marillion songs.

  55. Bab Boon

    I was gutted when Fish left and found it hard to accept Hogarth as his replacement.
    BUT THIS............. THIS song says better than any words Marillion are back on top.
    And, yes, Hogarth does this superbly.
    Worrying to think this was recorded 12 years ago now.

  56. Paul Mcgreivy

    I can just see the back of my head wooow that was some night

  57. cybergrind

    This song can Kill You in a bad day. In a good day can kill you too.

    Il est trop beau... comme il chante !... avec tout son être... avec tout son cœur... Je l'adore... J'ai découvert Marillion sur le tard et c'est devenu mon groupe préféré. Je chante leurs textes chaque jour et je les danse aussi... et c'est vraiment exaltant. Du pur bonheur !

  63. Andrew Colley

    I've spent the evening on a Marillion epic fest. By Christ they've written some right skin tinglers and soul stirrers.......

  69. jabokk

    Very Nice,..

  70. FunJunkie 27

    True artists/musicians. Depth and emotion that is such a rarity. Such beauty in our time amidst the ugly crap. It gives me hope and joy. Thank you to everyone in the band. FEAR proves that you aren't selling out!

    Alicia Phillips

    I can not explain the feelings that Marillion brings out in me.....
    Goosebumps all over me!
    I just introduced my husband to the band and he hasn’t really like what I listen to since we’ve been together but he took me to their concert in Montreal and it blew his mind !
    My children grew up listening to Marillion. My son’s band The KINECTED gets inspiration from the Marillion! NO OTHER BAND LIKE IT! ⚜️🖤✡️☮️♋️

    Reb Short

    @Alicia Phillips That's a smart band name. It works all along the continuum of being related, to we are all one.

  71. fabio filippi

    Albums with Fish were beautiful but very "infected" by Genesis and the like, with H found their own style, they can not, but are unique and unmistakable, and live are fantastic, thanks for the post (I apologize for my English school)

    Bab Boon

    Don't apologise for the lack of fluency - Your English is clear enough.
    You could apologise for the inaccuracy of asserting the early albums were 'infected' by Genesis.
    They're no more Genesis influenced than, say, this beautiful track.

    Michael Pugh

    fabio filippi Marillion is nothing like Genesis as I have listened to both for more than 45 years. They are totally different.

  72. john stone

    Love the bass Pete !!!

  73. PLATOON72

    When they will merge again with the previous singer? This one is depressing and boring: all the songs are the same...

    bedweld

    Platoon - shhhhhhhh.......you're making a fool of yourself

    Mikkel Olsen

    PLATOON72 if you dont Like The singer then dont listen to him and The band. Its as simple as that

    Jesper Hellvik

    Your loss. Hearing loss. Buy a hearing aid. ;-)

    Brian Kelley

    I'll put in my 2 cents worth: I love both eras of the band, but the more and more I've grown up, I listen more to the H era as (no offense, Onkel) the 80s Fish era stuff has become dated. Plus, Fish has not been able to sing very well for over the last 10+ years. The Return to Childhood was painful to hear live, even when they keyed him down. Very raspy and out of tune at times. Hate that for him. Even before vocal chord surgery, Fish hardly took the best care of his voice like he should have. Still love the guy.

    As far as with this Hate-orade for Hogarth, and Hogarth being 'a plague for the band', absolutely ridiculous!! It was obvious that the band was going to change forever after Fish left, and many old school fans would drop off. But think about it. The core four musicians have been there since Fugazi. They truly had to find a new identity after Fish was gone. One thing that Hogarth has done for the band is to take the sole focus away from just the lead singer, as the others tended to be pushed aside in favor of all accolades toward mainly Fish.

    Hogarth has helped to make the band all equal and focus even more toward the other members' talents. Not that they weren't present with Fish, but you have to admit it all got to Fish's head after a while. It could not have gone any further with Fish. Something had to give. And through time, the band has re-invented itself several times and grown its brand through tour funding, internet, and such. They are not your conventional band at all! I admire the bold and Brave steps they've taken along the way. Many of us tend to get stuck in the past or one version of a band, but as they do, we all grow up and move forward. I can't think of any better replacement than H. I'll always dig the old school, but as I have grown, I have gravitated more toward H and amazing albums like Brave, AOS, Anoraknophobia (yes I love that album!), Marbles and FEAR. And I want them to continue to perform as long as they are able.

    Naz67

    well H has been there almost 30 years

    Ok, so it's got God in the title - don't get too excited, it's not an endorsement of your crazy religion/fantasy!

    rick p

    I did not say it did, now did I? Peace and love unto you.

    y16amp

    No you didn't, but what you said was enough to make me despair. Peace and love to you - from an anti-theist!

  87. richard Hines

    Why does thoughtful music get shit upon ?

    richard Hines

    @***** People don't like complex music because they don't like complex emotions . You can avoid complex music , but you can't avoid complex emotions . If they could only match the two together , they'd be the richer for it . 

  88. Maria Grazia Fontana

    semplicemente fantastica

  89. WickedAng43

    ... Why does the whole damn world feel so broken
    So outside and out-of-sorts ...

    Fine Chariot

    It's true, you're right. Cold hearted people everywhere, but I feel a strange comforting nostalgia listening to Marillion, and I'm just 21 ;) Let us just enjoy the music. There are still some good people left.

  90. VicentedePaul Martinez

    Maravilloso

  91. johnni37

    fucking brilliant.  Love Steve's solo.

  92. Jamie Friesen

    Simply breathtaking!

  93. carlos castaneda

    virtuosity....

  94. Sergey

    the best of the best

  95. Ricardo Costa

    Magical Song...

  96. Reb Short

    Fish is great.  Hogarth's great.  What's the fucking problem?  As Steve (choose one) said, Marillion should have changed their name when Hogarth joined. Then all this argumentative silliness could have been avoided.  And I'm happy enough with Rothery and the rest of the band that I don't care who's singing.  I like both of them. Switch 'em up. Have a reunion. I just don't fucking care.

    Welsh Simon

    Reb Short I'm With You On That ..

    Welsh Simon

    Peter Benner Totally Agree

    Grant Wallace

    I love Marillion and the name and Fish and Steve Hogarth

    Stephen Reeve

    Steve is one hell of a frontman and I remember Fish as being very arrogant.

    Big G

    Reb Short - This sounds like an argument for Van Halen..

  97. john stone

    Just love this song, what a great  band !! keep going & make me happy !!
