Readerís Digest - (Roots Rock Remake)
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Alice is a drag queen Bowie's somewhere in between Other bands are looking mean Me, I'm trying to stay clean I don't dig the radio I hate what the charts pick Rock 'n' Roll may not be dead But it's really sick All over the world disc jockeys talk the same And every town I play is like the one from where I came. Except for this town, I always say that. Rolling Stones are millionaires Flower children pallbearers Beatles said, "All you need is love" Then they broke up Jimi took an overdose Janis followed so close The whole music scene and all the bands are pretty comatose This time last year, people didn't wanna hear They looked at Jesus from afar Now they call Him superstar. Dear John Never mind I've been listening to Paul's new records Never mind. It's 1973, I wonder who we're gonna see Who's in power now? Think I'll turn on my TV The man on the news said, "China's gonna beat us" We shot all our dreamers There's no one left to lead us We need a solution, some kind of Salvation Let's send some people to the moon and gather information. They brought back a big bag of rocks Only cost 247 billion Must be nice rocks. You think it's such a sad thing when you see a fallen king Then you find out they're only princes to begin with Everybody's got to choose whether they will win or lose Follow God, sing the blues, who they're gonna sin with What a mess this world is in, I wonder who began it? Don't ask me, I'm only visiting this planet. I'm not home at last I'm just passing through See ya!
