Another interpretation (The one that inspired Trent to write the song) is that this song is aimed at how much Trent dislikes George Bush.
If the "Capital G" wasn't clear enough, Trent has disliked both how he ran the country and that, well, Bush himself used Nine Inch Nails music at loud volumes as torture.

God of the universe is spelled with a capital G, the god of this world is spelt with a lower G. Could it have Masonic ties? The freeMason's use a capital G to refer to God in there emblem. Any thoughts?
