God That Can Save Me

by Prescott Johanson

I will celebrate this 4th of July with great love for my country and my fellow countrymen. Also though, we are in a time of great paranoia and personal devestation at what the future may hold. Despite what many will tell you, our country is strong, but our will and dedication to this great experiment of democracy is falling. I've said it before that I think we are spoiled as a country, unable to make any sacrifice for the greater good. This is misguided. The world will not end, this country will not fall unless we are unable to rise up in it's defence. I ask you all to really sit and think about what it means to be an American? What are our obligations and what are our benefits. Would you want to live in anouther country? I wouldn't, this is the greatest place on earth. We have to keep our competitive edge and lend a hand to all our fallen. We have to take responsibility for our own lives and rise up through hard work and dedication and not rely on others or the state for help. Community is everything, and we as a country are a community. Every race and creed, the tired, the hungry, the sick and the strong, we all have a responsibility to give our all to make sure that the experiment continues, and this great nation carries on. Will you stand up and fight for your country? I will. Here is a little song for you I wrote. I'm not sure it goes with my little rant above, but I picked the song out first so just bare with it and hopefully it entertains you for a few minutes. This is what I felt as the paranoia was mounting. We all have moments of weakness, but it's how you respond to them that makes you who you are. I respond with the pen, try to exorcise the demons so to speak. Have a Happy 4th of July! Love your family and friends, stand up for what you believe in and play a part in this representative goverment.

This feelings contagious
having nothing but pain &
selling my soul for pay
vacation, drugs and lays
Through back alley deals
the world's ruled with fear
Keep us fat with steer
marijuana, porn and beer
I try to be fearless
confronted by tear gas
planes raining pain
Watching the buildings crash
We have to act fast
or we'll be outlasted
sealed in a casket
one last gasp of air left
but fear not
fear glocks not pot
fear blocks of rock
Watt's and cops
fear the flock
racing the clock
fear being 
locked in a box
Hear soldiers coming
firing squad gunning
running fast as I can
my mind buzzing
Search for a place to hide
before blood burns in fire
my body so tired
but not quite ready to die

	All that I wish
	is a chance to be free
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me
	
	What I seek
	is to live a life of peace
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me
	
	Alone I plead
	for destruction to cease
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me

It doesn't take long
to cause someone harm
but nobody's even alarmed
we've all become pawns
Controlled by monsters
pedofiles, terror sponsors
Politicians in concert
everybody's lost too
Poxin poison
cyanide and toxin
What you need I got some
your soul won't blossom
Drug addicted
disease inflicted
nuclear fission
vision's conflicted
This is the world 
that we're all livin in
Slowly we're marching
into oblivian
but fuck it everybody's
living this mess
Ritalin mixed with meth
think they Eliot Ness
Fucking homosapians
raping kids again
killing their kin
living in blatant sin
Not afraid to hurt
cause they're already cursed
We need a rebirth
take the worst and purge
	
	All that I wish
	is a chance to be free
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me
	
	What I seek
	is to live a life of peace
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me
	
	Alone I plead
	for destruction to cease
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me

I feel weak, meek
dead on my feet
can't sleep, freak
future's looking bleak
Knees bleeding from
praying for better days
I'm reeling from all this
pain on display
Perversion and lust
hearts filled with discust
cuss, do enough
to avoid a drug bust
with some luck
we might just survive to fry
but in the afterlife
still strive for the light
but today we blaze
a man made damnation
TV nipple fed
a new age sedation
slaving everyday
slowly to our graves
save face, so fake
in the dark we are depraved
and we fight and we kill
cause that's how we're built
pleasure in misery
perverse and we get thrills
Nothing to do but wait
for this place to blaze
a world in flames
destroyed, see who is saved.

	All that I wish
	is a chance to be free
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me
	
	What I seek
	is to live a life of peace
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me
	
	Alone I plead
	for destruction to cease
	and not have to pray
	there's a God that can save me
