Monday Lyrics Blogging

Time In Babylon - Emmylou Harris/Jill Cunniff

Five-lane highway danger zone
SUV and a speaker phone
You need that chrome to get you home
Doin' time in Babylon

Cluster mansion on the hill
Another day in Pleasantville
You don't like it take a pill
Doin' time in Babylon

In the land of the proud and free
You can sell your soul and your dignity
For fifteen minutes on TV
Doin' time in Babylon

So suck the fat, cut the bone
Fill it up with silicone
Everybody must get cloned
Doin' time in Babylon

Little Boy Blue come blow your horn
The crows are in the corn
The morning sky is red and falling down
The piper's at the till
He's coming for the kill
Luring all our children underground in Babylon

We came from apple pie and mom
Thru civil rights and ban the bomb
To Watergate and Vietnam
Hard times in Babylon

Rallied 'round the megaphone
Gave it up, just got stoned
Now it's Prada, Gucci and Perron
Doin' time in Babylon

Get results, get 'em fast
We're ready if you got the cash
Someone else will be laughin' last
Doin' time in Babylon

So put that conscience on the shelf
Keep the best stuff for yourself
Let the rest fight over what is left
Doin' time in Babylon

Little Boy Blue come blow your horn
The crows are in the corn
The morning sky is red and falling down
Let your song of healing spark
A way out of this dark
Lead us to a higher and a holy ground

ha ha ha, Steve Taylor....
Now that brings back some early memories. I always liked his 'lifeboat' song.
That was one strange dude though.

Steve Taylor is making movies now. He's got one coming out in February. I'll post the trailer soon.

my pastors went to see it. without me.


i'm just kidding. i love them (jerks).

they are raving about the movie, telling everybody that they need to go see it, that it tells the truth about our area of impact (the urban church) and the fairly arrogant attitude that affluent and suburban churches have toward inner-city ministry.

and catch this, although neither of my pastors have heard of taylor before, my senior pastor was telling me it had some terrific one-liners, also credit to s.t.

why've i been raving about this on everybody's blog but mine (after all, if that movie should come and go, it's nobody's blog but mine [blind willie johnson via led zep via jasdye]).

Where'd they see it? Thought it had a Feb. 2006 release?


Blogger jasdye said ... (11/10/2005 09:43:00 PM) : 

it does open in february.

they got a special screening at 10 on a weekday morning. which, of course, is pastor's hours. who else could see a movie at 10 on a weekday.

i don't know who set it up or if they got to meet anybody afterwards. it sounded like they were just given the tix. apparently, not a lot of others went to see it.

and if i didn't already call in two sick days...

Well, I wasn't even invited. Grrrr.
