Using My Name
by Remedy Drive

Album: Imago Amor


You re using My Name in vain
For your power and
For your personal gain
For your advantage
For your wealth
And for your fame
You re using My Name in vain

The wealthy got their place
Of prominence at your feasts
On your committees and
On your boards of directors
How can you defend
Your cultural dominance
But not the least of these
In your cities and
In your public sectors

You re using My Name
You re using My Name in vain

Your public prayers
I abhor in My ears
They have become a strain
Because you ignore the poor
In their fears and
The exiled in their pain

Because you adore and
You defend the lustful, pride
The bribes and the
Lies of the arrogant
You've joined that tribe
And aligned your brand
With the unkind in the land
It s not Me you represent
You re using My Name in vain

For your rights and privilege
You trade prophetic witness
For economy and prosperity
You have betrayed
Me with your kisses
When justice is in famine
And when righteousness is starved
You bow to the alters
Of mammon and monuments of mars
My eyes are filled with fire
In my hand I hold seven stars
You pledge allegiance to this land
But not My country from afar

You pound new nails into My hands
You re ripping open up My scars
With My Name plastered
On your billboards and
The bumpers of your cars
On your bios, city halls
And on your paper currency
But you really trust
In bombs and barriers
For your comfort and security

You are using My Name
You re using My Name
You re using My Name in vain
