about

The Bush team had relied heavy on luring in the Evangelical vote in both elections. Having watched 9-11 from my rooftop in Brooklyn I and many others in NY were opposed to the Iraq war from day 1. From claiming war with a country unrelated to 9-11, to a woman’s right to chose, ignoring climate change and so on I felt the administration was ignoring the core tenets of the religion it had so unashamedly courted during the election season. And the members of those institutions had been duped into their movement under the guise of preserving religious social values while the country was overseas killing people truly in the name of oil. They used religion, which is supposed to be separate from law, as a lure to win votes and approval. Of course the real goal was to fuel banking interests, weapons manufacturing and construction contracts.

lyrics

Separation of Church and State
-words and Music by John Zay

You’re quoting the bible on me
But all the while
Your killing for greed

A moral and ethical stance
Now you’ve got them
In a trance

You own the gas but your pumping out fear
Riding high with Jesus near

Your truth is a distortion of lies
A disguise
you’re hearing our cries

Chorus:
Rally the masses into joining with your team
Falling in line behind the great American scheme
--
Prey upon the suckers in need
Its bribery
a brainwashed machine

Watch this war blow up in your face
It’s history
You can’t erase

Chorus:
Rally the masses into joining with your team
Falling in line behind the great American scheme

bridge 1:
With your lies
A moral disguise
Open Your Eyes
--
Now we won’t stand aside anymore
You have pinned us
To the floor

Separation of church and state
Don’t shove beliefs
In my face

Chorus:
Rally the masses into joining with your team
Falling in line behind the great American scheme

bridge 2:
With your lies
A moral disguise
Can you hear our cries?
A moral disguise
Open Your Eyes
