By Demons Be Driven...

is a Pantera song that just popped into my head.

* * * * *

Lately I've been getting the worst songs stuck in my head - Neil Diamond's "America", for example. And I've been thinking about how "America" is one of the guaranteed 4th of July fireworks songs, and about how a poll I saw on television showed that (was it?) Indiana Republican voters considered immigration as the second most important issue in the election, and frankly it doesn't make any sense to me. I suppose I truly believe in the words of Mr. Diamond. Or something.
Far
We've been travelling far
Without a home
But not without a star

Free
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They're coming to America
Never looking back again
They're coming to America

Home, don't it seem so far away
Oh, we're travelling light today
In the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm

Home, to a new and a shiny place
Make our bed, and we'll say our grace
Freedom's light burning warm
Freedom's light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They're coming to America
Every time that flag's unfurled
They're coming to America

Got a dream to take them there
They're coming to America
Got a dream they've come to share
They're coming to America

They're coming to America
They're coming to America
They're coming to America
They're coming to America
Today, today, today, today, today

My country 'tis of thee
(Today)
Sweet land of liberty
(today)
Of thee I sing
(today)
Of thee I sing
(today)

(today)

(today)

(today
THEY ONLY WANT TO BE FREE! THEY JUST WANT A NEW AND SHINY PLACE TO MAKE THEIR BEDS!

If you can't understand that, then maybe you should just turn your heart back in to the heart police.

And now, here's this. If you don't like this, turn your gigglemaker back in to the giggle police.

See, I don't think that's a bad song.

Yes, I like Neil Diamond. You got a problem with that?

And let me also add that the color selection on your blog sucks ass. Gave me a headache in 3.7 seconds.

the colors I'm using are from the red/green color blindness test - I just did it to annoy some color-blind folks back home.

It'll switch back in a week or so.
