[that’s the God I meant]
After 20 years, you analyse a lot. You remember people, heroism. Many people come up to me and say that had they been there, they surely would have died. But it makes no sense, because until you’re in a situation like that, you, you have no idea how you’d behave. To be affronted by solitude without decadence or a single material thing to prostitute, it elevates you to a spiritual plane, where I felt the presence of God.
Now, there’s the God they taught me about at school
And there is the God that’s hidden
by what surrounds us in this civilization
That’s the God I meant
