That would be way better, a great lyric and idea. "Everybody say God is 
a good man" means arrogant presumption on the part of people to even 
assume that God is a man. And in that light, the lyric "Is he his own 
man?" (as opposed to being the "man" some people presume "he" is) is 
brilliant. I hope it's what they meant.
