Righteous Town

Purchase on  The Queen of the Western Hemisphere - Big Medicine Head  and all online music stores

Pure right-minded people roam this town
there’s always one
there’s always one, there’s always one of them around
Snowflake babies on parade
bumper flag stickers on display
praying for the soul of Tom Delay

The Ghost of Joe McCarthy came to town
trying to keep the non-believers down
Jesus, Inc and the Holy War
selling faith from door to door
and beamed into the tv’s of the poor

But dig this people
check this out
who wants to be the king
who’ll wear the crown
in Righteous Town?

No trouble in the factory today
in Saipan unions don’t get in the way
Maria in the maquiladora
making yellow ribbon stickers to export
for Republican bumpers in the USA

Everything is easy on the right
hypnotized by bibles, flags and guns
corporate profit
corporate war
when we need guns
they’ll sell us more
corporate tv
tells us what it’s for

But dig this people
check this out
who wants to be the king
who’ll wear the crown
in Righteous Town?

Testify and wash your sins away
in Righteous Town
nobody’s going to work today

There's a guardian angel
but he's caught like a rat in a trap
on the street there's a prophet
but no one listens to that

Pure, right-minded people roam this town
there’s always one
there’s always one of them around
no one’s poor and no one’s gay
we’ll assure it stays that way
praying for the soul of Tom Delay
