Keep foremost in your mind that I am a Self-Hating Jew. Cannot change what I was born, but I hate LIARS (TANAKH). THERE IS NO GOD!
ORTHODOX JEWS MUST HAVE BRAIN DISEASE BECAUSE THEY KEEP BELIEVING FOR AN IMAGINARY GOD TO RESCUE THEM.
THE JEWISH GOD IS A PENILE OBSESSED CRACKPOT!
CIRCUMCISION NEEDS TO BE BANNED!
Most people do not know the bloody history of Christianity. It was anything but Peace and Love. Real history students are aware of this, brainwashed Christians are not.
“Also I’d been reading articles and doing research about the raping and pillaging of the West by mining, timber, oil and cattle interests. But I was interested in a larger scope for this song, so I tried to go “Michener” with it. I remember going out to Malibu and standing on Zuma Beach, looking out at the ocean. I remember thinking “This is about as far west – with the exception of Alaska-as you can go on this continent. This is where Manifest Destiny ends – right here. In the middle of these surfboards and volleyball nets and motor homes.” And then I thought, “Nah, we’ve gone right on over and screwed up Hawaii too.”
I still think, though, that the song was never fully realized, musically speaking. It is fairly pedestrian from a musical point of view. But lyrically it is not bad. Especially the last verse, which turns it from one thing into another and it becomes an allegorical statement about religion – the deception and destructiveness that is inherent in the mythology of most organized religion- the whole “dominion” thing. This song is a reaffirmation of the age-old idea that everything in the universe is connected and there are consequences, downstream for everything we do.
