One hand on the bible, One hand on the gun - Morgan Dawn Livejournal:The Here And Now
The Here And Now
morgandawn

One hand on the bible, One hand on the gun
I've been working on compiling a list of the fanvids made by California Crew, a vidding collective from the VCR era.  I came across this song today in one of their vids.


Which way are you going, which side will you be on
Will you stand and watch while, all the seeds of hate are sown
Will you stand with those who say, let his will be done
One hand on the bible
One hand on the gun
One hand on the bible
One hand on the gun

Which way are you looking, is it hard to see
Do you say whats wrong for him, is not wrong for me
You walk the streets, righteousness but you refuse to understand
You say you love the baby
Then you crucify the man
You say you love the baby
Then you crucify the man

Everyday, things are changing, words once honored turned to lies
People wondering, can you blame them
Its to far to run, and to late to hide

Now you turn your back on, all the things that you used to preach
Now its let him live in freedom, if he lives like me
Well your light has changed, confusion rains, what have you become
All your olive branches turned to spears
When your flowers turned to guns
Your olive branches turned to spears
When your flowers turned to guns

Wow, Jim Croce. That brings back memories. I got his albums when they first came out (before his tragic death in that plane crash.) He did some really good work.
