Everything In The World Is Fighting Everything In The Sky

How can we love one another when God won’t make the angels behave?
A three-legged horse dances a plaintive waltz in a bedraggled circus.

Woody Guthrie he saw the tornado
Raping the earth like a plough
The ground and the sky locked in combat
Like neither would ever back down

Everything in the world was fighting everything in the sky

Oh no, oh Noah you don’t know
The way my poor soul sprung a leak
My faith turned greener than cheap gold
As fake as American teeth

There once was a war up in Heaven
So the last book of John states
How can we love one another
When God won’t make the angels behave?

Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky
Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky

For my part I placed you too highly
Worshipped a cruel work of art
My what cold marble-white skin you had
The better to break a boy’s heart

‘Till the lamb takes a nap with the lion
And nobody’s feelings get hurt
The guns all become walkie talkies
And the good guys all stop shooting first

Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky
Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky
Everything in the sky is fighting everything in the world
Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky

Filmsack

Filmsack is one of my favourite podcasts. Every week the guys watch a (usually) bad (usually) 80’s film and discuss the highlights (or lowlights). There are lots of laughs but the best unintentional ones come from the way Scott Johnson captures clips and then forgets what he’s recorded. Here’s a short compilation…

Tear This Temple Down

All that you can see is all there is
Protest atheism meets balkan rhythms
Download     mp3 demo     Lyrics (pdf)

Ball your tiny fingers up in fists
Pray each night that God does not exist
‘Cos a Father up in Heaven
Who’s presiding over such a mess as this –
God forbid

You want to tear this temple down
Tear it down
To the ground
Tear this temple down
Tear it down
To the ground

You fear Heaven like your father feared hell
But what you think that you might find there, who can tell?
A man with questions looks for truth
But you just want to prove there’s no such thing
You can’t win

Go on and tear this temple down…

All that you can see is all there is.
All that you can see is all there is.
All that you can see is all there is.
All that you can feel is all there is.

All that you can see is all there is
Fools believe in things that don’t exist
Like tomorrow, like tomorrow.

You loved the way your name felt in her mouth
The angels came to take away the sound, and now…

Tear this temple down…
