Lyrics

 
Devil in the heartland
Doin’ what he does
Stirring up the terror
Poisoning the blood
Ranting on the TV
Raving at the crowd
Filling hearts with hatred
Turning minds to mud.
 
Devil in the heartland
Devil 'cross the sea
Saying to their people
They're not like you and me
Preaching Armageddon
Promising Jihad
Devils always say this
In the name of God.
 
CHORUS:
In the name of God, Oh God, reason’s on the run
In the name of God, Oh God, they say they’ll spare no one
In the name of God, the devil aims for heaven
Through the barrel of an AK47.
 
Devil in the cornfield
Devil in the sand
Each one tells the other
I’ll devastate your land              
Carpet bomb your country
Watch your cities fall
Devils say they answer
To a higher call.
 
CHORUS: 
In the name of God, Oh God, reason’s on the run
In the name of God, Oh God, they say they’ll spare no one
In the name of God, the devil aims for heaven
Through the barrel of an AK47
 
Devil says he’s pious
Devil says he’s wise
Promises solutions
With a pack of lies
Centuries have shown us
We should know it well
Following a devil...
Can only lead to hell
 
CHORUS:
In the name of God, Oh God, have they all lost their minds?
 In the name of God, Oh God, how can they be so blind?
 In the name of God, in the name of God,
 In the name of God, why can’t we just be kind?
  
 In the name of God...and humankind.

THE YEAR 2020

Jackie Morris

Intended as a humorous recollection of a really horrible year, "The Year 2020" recalls my way of trying to make lemonade out of lemons. The lyrics are actually true...and after I wrote the song, I realized how compulsive this scary time made me! But I also know that I was not alone! So many of us were spurred on to repair what had been neglected when life was "normal."
