Answer from a God

<You belong to me in your flesh, your spirit.
I can yield you peace. I can help you suffer.
Tune your voice to mine, down to where you'll hear it
       Lower and rougher.

Come with me. I'll help you forget tomorrow.
You don't need to shoulder what's not your portion.
I hold all the time you could wish to borrow.
       Praise your dark fortune!>

    Unwanting

    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out.
    Although you're perfect — I admit that's true —
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You're good for me — yeah, I admit that too —
    except what's good by you I'm good without.
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out.
    
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out,
    that yours is not the fancy I pursue.
    I never wanted anything from you,
    at least, not in the senses you construe.
    Beyond all pretense, treachery and doubt,
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out.
    
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out.
    I haven't changed: I always knew I knew
    I never wanted anything from you.
    Should I adopt a different point of view?
    That won't change my direction nor my route.
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out.
    
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out
    until your chance to give me it was through.
    I never wanted anything from you
    except for one small thing: somebody who
    would let me be what wanting's not about.
    I never wanted anything from you.
    You just never figured that one out.
