From the original liner notes..... 1: In the beginning Man created God; and in the image of Man created he him. 2: And Man gave unto God a multitude of names, that he might be Lord over all the earth when it was suited to Man. 3: And on the seven millionth day Man rested and did lean heavily on his God and saw that it was good. 4: And Man formed Aqualung of the dust of the ground, and a host of others likened unto his kind. 5: And these lesser men Man did cast into the void. And some were burned; and some were put apart from their kind. 6: And Man became the God that he had created and with his miracles did rule over all the earth. 7: But as all these things did come to pass, the Spirit that did cause man to create his God lived on within all men: even within Aqualung. 8: And man saw it not. 9: But for Christ's sake he better start looking.

"...salvation a la mode and a cup of tea." - Aqualung =================================================================== "Hymn 43", _Aqualung_, which contains gems such as: "I don't believe you. You've got the whole damned thing all wrong. He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays" "He is the god of nothing if that's all that you can see You are the god of everything, he's part of you and me" "And the graven image you-know-who He's got him fixed with his plastic crucifix Confuses me as to who and where and why As to how he gets his kicks" "I saw him in the city and on the mountains of the moon His cross was rather bloody -- he could hardly roll his stone" "He hears the silence howling Catches angels as they fall And the all-time winner has got him by the balls He picks up Gideon's Bible open at page one Says 'God, he stole the handle And the train, it won't stop going no way to slow down.'" " 1 In the beginning Man created God; and in the image of Man created he him. 2 And Man gave unto God a multitude of names that he might be Lord over all the earth when it was suited to Man. 3 And on the seven millionth day Man rested and did lean heavily on his God and saw that it was good. 4 And Man formed Aqualung of the dust of the ground, and a host of others unto his kind. 5 And these lesser men Man did cast into the void. And some were burned; and some were put apart from their kind. 6 And Man became the God that he had created and with his miracles did rule over all the earth. 7 But as all these things did come to pass, the spirit that did cause man to create his God lived on within all men: even within Aqualung. 8 And man saw it not. 9 But for Christ's sake he'd better start looking."
