    Anybody around and listening, back in the day? A few weeks back, I remembered how much I loved Steve Taylor. This morning, I remembered "I Manipulate." Here are the lyrics. I can't find this particular tune on Youtube, but I'm likely to buy the CD before much more time elapses.

    Does your soul crave center stage?
    Have you heard about the latest rage?
    Read your Bible by lightning flash
    Get ordained at the thunder crash

    Build a kingdom with a cattle prod
    Tell the masses it's a message from God
    Where the innocent congregate
    I manipulate

    Take your notebooks, turn with me
    To the chapter on authority
    Do you top the chain of command
    Rule your family with an iron hand

    I dispense little pills of power
    From my hideaway ivory tower
    From the cover of heaven's gate
    I manipulate

    Now it's time to fill in the space
    Where we talk about a woman's place
    Do you want to build a happy home?
    Have you sacrificed a mind of your own?

    'Cause a good wife learns to cower
    Underneath the umbrella of power
    From the cover of heaven's gate
    I manipulate

    Yes, I know that parable
    That's the story of the prodigal
    If you question what I'm teaching you
    You rebel against the Father too

    If he loved him why'd he let him go?
    Well, I guess I don't really know
    But I see it's getting late

    I remember the good old days when rock and roll was Satans' music.

    For those of us who were pentecostals in the 70's and 80's, this music was absolutely considered to be "of the devil."

    This song has stuck with me since the first time I heard it. It's a benediction of sorts. It always calms me down.
