Song Squawk – Execution

In the mid nineties, I had a little red Buick and a big ol’ bass box in the trunk, and would listen to “Christian Rock”, cranked to 11.

(What did you say?  Huh?  Can  you say that again, I didn’t hear you….)

I have gotten away from that genre for many reasons, the least of which may be a loss of hearing, but some songs have stuck with me over the decades.

The artist’s I listened to sought to reflect Scriptural teaching for the most part. They ranged from “preaching” pop culture religion to significant theological teaching. As I listened to the lyrics, I found some to be quite challenging.

To be honest, I listened because I could justify the rock beat with “sanctified lyrics”.

Occassionaly I will post a song, supply the lyrics and make a comment or two. If you decide to listen to the tune, turn the speaker down unless you are already deaf. Some of the songs tend to have a certain “volume” about them!


This post will consider the song

Execution – by Grammatrain

No verse in this song is one “that I sung along with” It is a graphic song of the process of abortion. If you have a squeamy stomach, stop reading.

These guys became a staple for me – but this particular song haunted me with the descriptions of the abortion described as an execution.

Take a listen!

Execution – by Grammatrain

Execution – by Grammatrain

Watch while I’m burned in salt
Tell me now where’s my fault
I’m torn in two, you pull me through
Oh ignore my shout now scrape me out

Oh nation murders me, me, me

Suck me down your hose
Pieces of my fingers and toes
Use me to rew your lab rat stew
Oh dissolve my voice for your woman’s choice

My execution, it’s your revolution

Spill my blood on “civil” hands
And I pay to make you free
Oh, nation murders me
Yeah, with politicians dreams
Now silencing my screams, screams, screams

Let me know what you think of the lyrics, and of the tunes!
