People ask for God, till the day he comes

For some reason, not quite sure yet, I really like the chorus from "Understand" by The Roots on their new album ...and then you shoot your cousin. Here are the lyrics (for the whole song go to Rap Genius):

People ask for God, till the day he comes
See God's face - turn around and run
God see the face of man
Shaking his head, say's "he'll never understand"
People ask for God, till the day he comes
See God's face - turn around and run
God see the face of man
Shaking his head, say's "man'll never understand"

I presume my appreciation for these words has something to do with how brilliantly they capture humanity's on going struggle with understanding God and maybe even God's ongoing effort to understand and relate to God's own creation, especially those made in God's image. 

The music video is pretty great too:
