So you on board with Jesus
There you go
Jesus said some smart things

Like taking care of strangers
But not for show
Appreciating small things

Jesus was a broke man
Barefoot and brown
With patience and a long ear

And called his love “The Gospel”
Spread it around
And somehow we ended up here.

So you don’t like my neighbor
Cause he’s poor
And struggling with his own thing

But Jesus was a broke man
Barefoot and brown
So would you feel the same thing
if he was around?

Open up your heart a little
We’ve got so very far to go
Could you open up your heart a little
For the sake of all you hold
I’m done fighting with you fighting with you
There’s no faith wihout the fold

Try to say their names,
the martyrs you didn’t like much.

So you onboard with action
There you go
Action is a great thing

But action to a like mind
Is just for show
And anger is the first thing

The screaming’s gonna kill you
Nice and slow
Cause half of us won’t hear you

We decided you’re a stranger,
there you go
We will not hear your second thing.

If you on board with change, son
There you go
Think about your flavor

Hope can’t die like they did
In one go
while you was chewing out your neighbor

Open up your heart a little
We built a country on a dream
Ain’t that worth opening your mouth a little
And asking questions ‘stead of screaming
And if we fight a little, fight a little
That’s just what Democracy means

Try to say their names
the believers you didn’t like much.

An Arbornaut is a three way cross between a flying squirrel, an astronaut, and an angel. I know one as soon as I spot one. They are naturally occuring in nature. I had a dream about them once and started a band. We are a choir and we are an orchestra. We are disgruntled classical musicians & believers in musical traditions of feeling lots of things. This is the noise from the inside of a root. ... more
