God, I hate mythologies

You know the ones I mean

Like the one that says:

We support the troops
But not the war

Or the one that says:

We're fighting them over there
So we don't have to fight them over here

Or how about the one that says:

Let China have Capitalism without Democracy
And eventually they'll come around to Democracy

And then there's the one that says:

We can have the standard of living we have now
And still save the environment

And how about the one that says:

Lobbyists can buy the members of congress
But voting still works

Kind of makes you think of the cliches:

You can't have your cake and eat it too


You can't have it both ways

But I remember most, the words of Jesus:

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle
Than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven

But, Hey!

Nowadays, Christ has been turned into an avenging angel
Who will destroy unbelievers and save the rich

Yeah, we want Democracy, a clean environment, and a peaceful world
But, we also want our one God, our toys, and to be the top dog

And the worst mythology of all, is the one that says:

We are the greatest country in the world


Because we said so, and no one can stop us

God, I hate mythologies

I'm sure you can think of a few

Like the one that says:

We support the troops
But not the war
