« god is in the house | Main | gospel and justice: christmas blah... with brian mclaren »



Reminds me of some of Dave Rovics lyrics (http://www.davidrovics.com) - especially his song "Miami".


Great lyric, great song - remember the 'controversy' over his use of the f word at the time - talk about missing the point!


Those who've seen Bruce perform this one live will know the emphasis he places on the "FFFlying FFFuck"

There's a great live recording of this on the EP `You Pay your money and you take your chance'.

The bit about `Dirty MF' could be seen as equally `controversial' given that he probably didn't mean `Dirty Monetary Fund'.


nothing like intelligent song writing


absolutely, this marriage between faith and politics that holds power in the US is destroying biblical concepts of justice. props to all musicians named Bruce


When I have heeard Bruce do this song, he tells of being asked if he thought it odd to write a pop song about economics, to which he replied "aren't all of them?"
