No. 30 – On the Strangeness of Strangers in even Stranger Lands that offer sanctuary in New Havens:

On the Strangeness of Strangers in even Stranger Lands that offer sanctuary in New Havens:

Or how The Lord’s songs can be recited in strange lands among the unclean non-believers and the faithless heathens.

Below are samples and examples of Three old-fashioned Lamentations in the Tone and Spirit of the Patriarchs bent-upon turning back the hands and sand of time and thus participating in and causing retro-time-travel into the fond days of by-gone eras long gone (Such songs and lyrics are inhibitors of pro-gress, modernity, awakening, intelligence, equality, and freedom and awakens and re-kindles ‘hate-reds’ and re-sent-ments, and causes bondage and humiliation and degradation).

So who are these people (the authors and authorities), and why are they lamenting the past of Three Millenia ago? and what do they hope and aspire to accomplish, and achieve with such songs in the year of their lord 1978, and what are the lasting impressions left on a strange and estranged observer and witness in 2014 A.D.

Even more alarming, is the well known fact, that “ALL” The Faithfiul are doing the same with ‘Their Own’ Exclusive and Authorized versions of verses of their own verses and versions and scriptures and divine propaganda of divisions and exclusion so that they can get free money and property and souls from their flock who flock around and get duped and conned and branded and mutilated all the time, no matter where they are or what era it is.

Ignorance is such a potent tool and weapon of mass-destruction and mass-confusion for of the masses at mass.

Since the faithful are preached empty promises and given false hope by the reverend preachers who sit around and do nothing else all day save for telling and re-telling their tall-tales and erecting monumental barriers, walls, fences, borders, and barricades, and then brand the flock with symbols of ideology like live-stock.

Now, lo and behold, isn’t it such a marvel and splendid, and magnificent spectacle to behold that, while some are imagining the possibility of inter-stellar travel and the freedom of humanity, the patriarchs are deeply engaged and committed in turning back time that has already elapsed to remain surely and firmly rooted into the past of the formless void and pits and ditches, and trenches of ignorance and untold and unimaginable darkness and lack of facts of life, data, information, and knowledge through The Scriptures and Decrees as their devices and technology of choice, and at the same time, broadcasting their message of self-righteousness filled with all manner of ISM’s , and IST’s to futther divide, and confuse, and be-fool the people who submit to their authority.

All religious books and teaching and preaching should be banned, especially the Torah, thus liberating the enslaved souls (particularly the women and children) who are forced to submit and remit to the ideologies of those hatters parties.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion

When the wicked carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
Now, how shall we sing the Lord’s song
In a strange land?

When the wicked carried us away in captivity
Requiring of us a song
Now, how shall we sing the Lord’s song
In a strange land?

Let the words of our mouth
And the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight, here tonight

Let the words of our mouth
And the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight, here tonight

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion

By the rivers of Babylon (dark tears of Babylon)
There we sat down (you got to sing a song)
Yeah we wept (sing a song of love)
When we remembered Zion (yeah yeah yeah)

By the rivers of Babylon (rough bits of Babylon)
There we sat down (you hear the people cry)
Yeah we wept (they need their God)
When we remembered Zion (ooh, have the power)

The lyrics are adapted from the texts of Psalms 19 and 137 in the Bible, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rivers_of_Babylon

Psalm 19: Psalm 19 was composed by king David. Psalm 19 is said as part of the preliminary Jewish service on Saturday (Sabbath) mornings and also at festivals. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psalm_19

Psalm 137: The psalm is a hymn expressing the yearnings of the Jewish people in exile following the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem in 607 BCE. The rivers of Babylon are the Euphrates river, its tributaries, and the Tigris river (possibly the river Habor, the Chaboras, or modern Khabur, which joins the Euphrates at Circesium).[1] In its whole form, the psalm reflects the yearning for Jerusalem as well as hatred for the Holy City’s enemies with sometimes violent imagery. Rabbinical sources attributed the poem to the prophet Jeremiah,[2] and the Septuagint version of the psalm bears the superscription: “For David. By Jeremias, in the Captivity”. For source, see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psalm_137.

They just keep holdin’ me
A-won’t let go
Holdin’ me
Won’t let go!

I need a hammer – a hammer – a hammer – a hammer
To hammer them down!
I need a rammer – a rammer – a rammer – a rammer
To ram them down!

They just keep teasin’ me
And, you know, they play like they don’t know
Provokin’ me
But this is all I know

I need a rammer – a rammer – a rammer – a rammer
To ram them down!
I need a hammer – a hammer – a hammer – a hammer
To hammer them down!

Wee-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh

Oh, I need a rammer – a rammer – a rammer – a rammer
To ram-a them-a down!
Oh, I need a hammer – a hammer – a hammer – a hammer
To hammer them down!

Said, I need a rammer – a rammer – a rammer – a rammer
To ram-a them down!
I need a hammer – a hammer – a hammer – a hammer
To hammer them down!

Holdin’ me (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Won’t let go (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Holdin’ me (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Won’t let go (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I need a rammer – a rammer – a rammer – a rammer
To ram-a them down!
I need a hammer – a hammer – a hammer – a hammer
To hammer them down!

I need a hammer – a hammer – a hammer – a hammer
To hammer them down!
I need a rammer – a rammer – a rammer – a rammer
To ram them down!

I need a hammer – a hammer – a hammer – a hammer
To hammer them down!
I need a rammer – a rammer – a rammer – a rammer
To ram them down!

Lyrics: Bob Marley

Please liberate yourselves from the Holy Yokes of the Holy Breathren and Patriarchs who want to languish in the days of Yore and Lore and want to enslave you and your generations.
