Satellite Lyrics

Hush little baby don't cry like that
God's gonna buy you a Cadillac
He's chosen you to do his will
You can spread the word in your coupe de ville

So jump in the river and learn to swim
God's gonna wash away all your sins
And if you still...

    This is a well written and poignant slam on the electronic church of evangelists of all stripes, from Jimmy Swaggert to Joel Osteen. The first reference, "God's gonna by you and Cadillac" and its follow-on line, "spread the word in a Coup de Ville", are direct references to flamboyant street evangelists such as John 3:16 Cook, who began his career in St. Petersburg, Florida, and ended it in Las Vegas, Nevada. The next part of the song is about how this evangelist rises until his word is received everywhere. Then comes the line, "And if you fall then that's okay, you love the ones who you betray" (delivered with special invective). This is the culmination of the song, and it fingers scoundrels such as Jimmy and Tammy Faye Baker, Jimmy Swaggert, Bob Tilton and other figures of the electronic Church who betrayed their own teachings and their flocks. In all the song is poignant, insightful, hard-hitting, provocative and truthful.
