I Met God 2

It was a big old Victorian house, I was only two floors up. Maybe 7 or 8 years ago. It was at night time and I think I'd lost the plot. I didn't see him but he was like the voice of reason. His voice was one of those things that's hard to describe. It was probably just a normal voice, like when you're thinking, but it was so important that you just had to do what he said.

He said 'jump through that window'. I said 'I can't jump through that window, you're not supposed to jump through windows'. He said, 'no it'll be fine, honest' and I said 'no, I'm not jumping through the window, jumping through windows is bad.' He said, 'No they only tell you that, it'll be alright...'

So I took a running jump... but the glass bent and I fell back and realised that it was a bad thing and that God was bad. So then he started 'Go on, jump through it you cunt'. I said 'what are you talking about?' and he said 'those people that you think are your friends, they think you're a cunt.' And he was filled with more foul language like that. He just left me confused.

It's one of those things, if you go on about it it sounds bit crap. Someone who's praying, they're either praying or they're talking to themselves. Whatever way you look at it, they're talking to something that doesn't answer back; I suppose if that starts answering back to you, then that's God. It was pretty important to make me believe that I could jump through a window and that would be fine, that there was no consequence to that: you get the safety backing by the Big Man and you're all right; you can go shooting people.

I'm not listening him now though.
