Sunday Dispatch #345

And sadness will come to those who call evil good and good evil. Who present darkness as light and light as darkness. Who present as sweetness, only the things which are bitterness.

~Sinead O'Connor

a Sinead original song

I like anti-War songs


here is what she has to say about it


Quote:
"This is a protest song I guess, but it's more of an anti war song.
I have always been fascinated with how the books of the prophets relate to things nowadays even though they were written hundreds or thousands of years ago.
I read Isaiah and took the lines from it that I liked and adapted them so they rhymed. My desire was not to use anything that perpetuated the myth of a God character being angry and aggressive.
I suppose I observe a lot of violence done in the name of theologies of various religions, but when you study the actual texts of those religions you find that they don't back up anyone who might use them to justify war or violence or anything really which is unloving of people.


If You Had A Vineyard.
---------------------------------
If U had a vineyard
On a fruitful hill
And U fenced it and cleared it
Of all stones until
U planted it
With the choicest of vine
And U even built a tower
And a press to make wine
And U looked that it would bring forth sweet grapes
And it gave only wild grapes
What would U say?

Jerusalem and Judah
U be the judges I pray
Between me and my vineyard
This is what God says

What more could I have done in it
That I did not do in it?
Why when I ask it for sweetness
It brings only bitterness

For the vineyard of the Lord of Hosts
Is the house of Israel
And the men of Judah
His pleasant plant

And he looks for justice but beholds oppression
And he hopes for equality but hears a cry
Jerusalem and Judah
This is God's reply

Sadness will come to those who build house to house
And lay field to field 'til there's room
For none but U to dwell in the land
Oh in the land
And sadness will come to those who call evil good
And good evil
Who present darkness as light and light as darkness
Who present as sweetness only the things which are
bitterness

For the vineyard of The Lord of Hosts
Is the house of Israel
And the men of Judah his pleasant plant

Oh that my eyes were a fountain of tears
That I might weep for my poor people

For every boot stamped with fierceness
For every cloak rolled in blood
Jerusalem and Judah
I'd cry if I could
