Our Love Is God

Our Love Is God lyrics

Our Love Is God

J.D.
They made you cry,
but that will end tonight.
You are the only thing that's right
about this broken world.
Go on and cry,
but when the morning comes,
we'll burn it down and then
we'll build the world again...
Our love is God.

VERONICA
Are you okay?

J.D.
I was alone.
I was a frozen lake,
but then you melted me awake;
See, now I'm crying too.
You're not alone.

VERONICA
You're not alone...

J.D.
And when the morning comes,

VERONICA
When the morning comes...

J.D.
We'll burn away that tear,
and raise our city here...

VERONICA
Raise our city here...

J.D. & VERONICA
Our love is God.

(Veronica's house. J.D. watches as Veronica calls Kurt and Ram on the phone.)

KURT
Yeah-lo?

VERONICA
Hi, Kurt, it's Veronica... how did you guys know it was a fantasy of mine to have two guys at once?

KURT
Wowuhh... lucky guess?

VERONICA
If you want it to come true, meet me at the cemetery. At dawn.

(Veronica hangs up)

KURT
Free pussy!

RAM
And we don't even have to buy it a pizza!

(They punch it in and exit)

J.D.
We can start and finish wars,

J.D. & VERONICA
We're what killed the dinosaurs.
We're the asteroid that's overdue.
The dinosaurs choked on the dust,
they died because God said they must.
The new world needed room
for me and you.

J.D.
I worship you.
I'd trade my life for yours.
They all will disappear,
we'll plant our garden here:
Our love is God.

J.D. & VERONICA
[Variously, repeats)
Our love is God.

(J.D. opens up a box and pulls out two pistols. Veronica stares in horrified fascination)

VERONICA
Whoa. Is that real?

J.D.
Yeah, but we're filling it with "Ich Luge" bullets.

VERONICA
Ich Luge...? What?

J.D.
My grandad scored them in World War II. They contain a powerful tranquilizer. The Nazis used them to fake their own suicides when the Russians invaded Berlin. We will use them to knock out Ram and Kurt long enough to make it look like a suicide pact. Complete with a forged suicide note.

(Lights up on Kurt and Ram embracing)

KURT & RAM
"Ram and I died because we had to hide our gay forbidden love from a disapproving world."

J.D.
And when the morning comes,
they'll both be laughing stocks...

J.D. & VERONICA
So let's go hunt some jocks!

(Cemetery at dawn. Kurt and Ram wait for Veronica)

KURT
Hi... Veronica.

RAM
Uh... So do we just whip it out or what?

VERONICA
Take it slow, Ram. Strip for me.

KURT
What about you?

VERONICA
I was hoping you'd rip my clothes off me, sport. Count of three.

(KURT and RAM stand awkwardly in their underpants. RAM giggles in anticipation)

VERONICA
One... two...

J.D.
Three.

(J.D. steps out and shoots Ram. Veronica fires at Kurt, missing him. Kurt runs)

KURT
Aaaugh! Holy crap!

J.D.
Stay there. I'll get him!

(Veronica, suddenly worried, kicks Ram with her foot)

VERONICA
Ram? You're just unconscious, right?
Ram? Ram!

(J.D. chases Kurt, who tries to escape by scaling a chain-link fence)

J.D.
Ger off the fence! Get off the damn fence!

KURT
I don't understand!

J.D.
We can start and finish wars.
We're what killed the dinosaurs.
We're the asteroid that's overdue.

KURT
Stop being a dick!

J.D.
The dinosaurs will turn to dust.

KURT
What does that mean?!

J.D.
They'll die because we say they must.

(J.D. fires; Kurt dies. Veronica runs up)

VERONICA
What the fuck have you done?!

J.D.
... I worship you.
I'd trade my life for yours.
We'll make them disappear.
We'll plant our garden here.

(J.D. holds out his hand)

J.D.
Our love is God.

(Repeats. J.D. holds Veronica in his arms as she sobs in shock and horror)

VERONICA
Our love is God...

J.D.
Our love is God.

VERONICA
Our love is God...

J.D. AND VERONICA
Our love is God!...
