GODS ON THE LOOSE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          I.  I see fire-breathing gods,
              enslaving gods,
              forgiving gods
              and saving gods
              and ones who don't appear.
              I see pillars of salt
              where three or more live in fear.

   CHORUS A:  of all the gods on the loose,
              which one do you choose?
              is he a blessing or a curse?
              did he make you
              or just the reverse?

         II.  I saw by chance
              a hill of gloves.
              a pile of hands
              is what it was.
              fingers point at the sky
              where surgeons trade
              the other cheek
              for an eye for an eye,
              and amputees
              learn the sound
              of one hand praying.

              (repeat chorus A)

        III.  I'd go to court
              and sue the gods
              if I could afford
              an honest judge.
              but all the gods will say
              that they were victimized
              on the ninth day.
              but if god's everywhere,
              he's in jail anyway.

              (repeat chorus A)

   CHORUS B:  of all the gods on the loose,
              which one do you choose?
              soon it will all be clearer
              just who is the maker
              and who is the mirror.
