AMERICA THOSE DAYS ARE GONE

Todays sermon is based on the lyrics to the Tapeloops’ song of the same name. The Tapeloops are of course, the exploratory musical vehicle of choice for the Rev and friends. (We’d like a real vehicle to get around in but we can’t afford to pay the rego.) 

AMERICA THOSE DAYS ARE GONE

*

Dear America, the Good Times are over,

You’re walking on the Dead Sea now,

a thousand soldiers dressed in grey,

and green are lying there.

Oh America those days are gone.

America, a thousand soldiers,

are dressed in grey and green,

are lying in your bloody footsteps,

by the dead & bitter Sea,

America, those days are gone.

America those days are past,

Your Eagles turn to dust,

there is no sign of Victory,

your coins have changed to rust,

America, those days are gone.

America there’s people starving,

it just doesn’t seem to be fair

yet you keep on playing with missiles,

please America why won’t you share,

America, you just don’t care.

You said you’d lead us to the Promised Land,

but we just never seem to arrive,

You’ve lost your sense of Direction,

You need an Intervention just to Survive,

So America it’s my turn to drive.

Yes America it’s my turn to drive.
