Part III: War “...waging war against the law of my mind”

lyrics

Woody Guthrie he saw the tornado
Raping the earth like a plough
The ground and the sky locked in combat
Like neither would ever back down

Everything in the world was fighting everything in the sky

Oh no, oh Noah you don't know
The way my poor soul sprung a leak
My faith turned greener than cheap gold
As fake as American teeth

There once was a war up in Heaven
So the last book of John states
How can we love one another
When God won't make the angels behave?

Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky

For my part I placed you too highly
Worshipped a cruel work of art
My what cold marble-white skin you had
The better to break a boy's heart.

'Till the lamb takes a nap with the lion
And nobody's feelings get hurt
The guns all become walkie-talkies
And the good guys all stop shooting first

Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky
Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky
And everything in the sky is fighting everything in the world
Everything in the world is fighting everything in the sky
