Live's "Heaven" & General Revelation

I don’t remember much from Systematic Theology class, but I do remember talking about general revelation.  I recall my prof discussing general revelation through certain avenues (mainly creation) being one of the ways that everyone can perceive God’s existence and gain some understanding of him.  I’m not making any commentary on that idea here; I just wanted to point out that I recognized it the other day on the radio of all places.  Check out Live’s “Heaven” below; the chorus goes like this:

I don’t need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don’t need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive (full lyrics here)

I don’t think the band is talking about any particular God in this song, but rather probably would be very inclusivistic.  Enjoy!
