GOD KNOWS!

July 25, 2014  By Jack Jodell.

Below are words from a song I co-wrote and recorded 11 years ago with a man named Tom Sedio (a VERY gifted singwriter and guitarist) during the earliest phases of the criminal Bush / Cheney Iraq War fiasco. Although we have not yet released it, (and perhaps never will). as I listened again to it recently, it struck me how timeless and wholly applicable the lyrics seem to be even today, more than a decade later…

GOD KNOWS!

“God knows everybody needs more love
I know what it’s done for me
God sees Satan taking over the world
I know what he’s done to me
God knows that there is no need for war
I see dying needlessly
God wants everyone to share their love
I want people to be free…

Take a look around you – tell me what you see
Looks like everybody’s insane
Give your heart a listen; tell me what it says –
Seems like everybody’s in pain
Think about the fiture – analyze the past –
Looks like no one uses their brain
Tell me how to stop this – turn this world around –
Is there really something that’s sane to gain?

God knows everybody needs more peace
I feel what it’s done for me
God sees greed has taken over the world
I know what it’s done to me
God knows that there is a need for peace
I see dying needlessly
God wants everyone to share their joy
I want people to be free…

Both the left and the right at each other’s throat
Seems like everybody’s insane
Save the unborn child; kill the criminal –
Such a contradiction – such pain!
Do a crazy diet – throw away your food –
1 in 6 go hungry each night!
Book me on a Mars probe – get me outta here!
I’m afraid we’re losing our sight for what’s right!

God knows everybody needs more love
I feel what it’s done for me
God sees Satan taking o’er the world
I know what he’s done to me
God knows that there is no need for war!
I see dying needlessly
God wants everyone to share their love
I want people to be free…

East and west in turmoil
at each other’s throat
everyone so hateful and mean
Give the rich some more – take it from the poor!
BOTH are fed by those in-between
Tell me how to stop this; turn the world around –
Nobody is using their brain
Book me on a Mars probe – get me OUTTA here!
I’m afraid we’re losing our sight for right!”
