Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
This isn't from a newspaper column but I think you could say that it is a "popular view of the Bush Administration'. Anyway, it is a powerful song:


Buddy Tabor Album: Hope
Isaiah's Dream
Guy (Buddy) Tabor 2005

Oh a soldier sleeps in a flag-draped grave
You hid your lies behind the life that he gave
He obeyed your will but you lied to him
Now the tears like water fall down on his next of kin

When we rose up to say you were wrong
Like Saul you gnashed your teeth with propaganda's song
You wanted power, to gain control
And yes, it seems like you've lost your very soul

Oh the vine is green and the wine is red
And the word was made flesh and you know that flesh has bled
There'll come a time but I don't know when
All I know is that spark of hope still burns within

Isaiah's dream is coming 'round
And the sword hammered into the plow on fertile ground
Oh the thorns were sharp but peace will come
One day all of us will dance to a different drum

Oh the vine is green and the wine is red
And the word was made flesh and you know that flesh has bled
The time will come but I don't know when
All I know is that spark of hope still burns within

Yes there'll come a day when there'll be no more war
And it won't be taught to the nations of the world any more
Yes that day will come but I don't know when
All I know is that spark of hope still burns within
All I know is that spark of hope still burns within
