I can't keep up with what's been going on
I think my heart must just be slowing down
Among the human beings in their designer jeans
Am I the only one who hears the screams
And the strangled cries of lawyers in love

God sends his spaceships to America, the beautiful
They land at six o'clock and there we are, the dutiful
Eating from TV trays, tuned into to Happy Days
Waiting for World War III while Jesus slaves
To the mating calls of lawyers in love

Last night I watched the news from Washington, the capitol
The Russians escaped while we weren't watching them, like Russians will
Now we've got all this room, we've even got the moon.
And I hear the U.S.S.R. will be open soon
As vacation land for lawyers in love

    There are "good" lawyers that fight for justice, and there are lawyers that use/twist the laws to gain/hold/expand personal power. Nixon was a lawyer and fueled by mob money. Alberto gonzales, john woo, etc. W was barely smart enough to buy an undergrad degree - but would be a lawyer if he could get over the lowest bar... Pun intended. You get the idea.

    This song speaks to me of the "signs of the times", our political and technology advancements, the war between science and religion, the war between law and higher self. How pointless are these things we struggle with when in the end, we will join with our higher selves in the higher realm and know only love and understanding.
