He did it again

Ok so they finally released Rock N Roll Jesus on Rhapsody so I got to listen to the whole album. I really never thought I would ever like a Kid Rock song but damn there are some GOOD songs on this one. When I heard this I had to google the words. The song just blew me away and then I had to see what he did with the video. Kid you got me with this one and so DAMN true. Here is the video and I am posting the words under it.

It's another night in hell
Another child won't live to tell
Can you imagine what it's like to starve to death

And as we sit free and well
Another soldier has to yell
Tell my wife and children I love them in his last breath

C'mon now amen, amen, amen

Habitual offenders, scumbag lawyers with agendas
I'll tell you sometimes people I don't know what's worse
Natural disasters or these wolves in sheep clothes pastors
Now God damn it I'm scared to send my children to church
And how can we seek salvation when our nations race relations
Got me feeling guilty of being white
But faith in human nature, our creator and our savior, I'm no saint
But I believe in what is right

C'mon now amen, amen
I said amen, amen

Stop pointing fingers and take some blame,
Pull your future away from the flame
Open up your mind and start to live
Stop short changing your neighbors
Living off hand outs and favors, and maybe
Give a little bit more than you got to give

Simplify, testify, identify, rectify
And if I get high stop being so uptight
It's only human nature and I am not a stranger
So baby won't you stay with me tonight

When a calls away
to break the sound
I'm faden down, I need someone
Oh to be someone
They just sinken down, and holden back
I hold the dawn and run
They don't save a child
Oh, to save a child

It's a matter of salvation from them patience up above,
So don't give up so damn easy on the one you love, one you love
Somewhere you got a brother, sister, friend, grandmother, niece or nephew
Just dying to be with you
You know there's someone out there who unconditionally, religiously, loves you
So just hold on 'cause you know it's true
And if you can take the pain
And you can withstand anything, and one day
Stand hand in hand with the truth

I said amen, I said amen
I said amen, I said amen,

Yeah, Kid has impressed me with his ability to go beyond his early, "I'm a white rap singer who likes to sing about his big c**k" routine. He's really matured, mixed up some genres, and has a message. I give him kudos.

Now, if he can just stay out of Waffle Houses..

Tommy.... I really think you would like this album. It reminds me a lot of Bob Segars stuff. When U Love Someone is such an awesome song also. Just no video for it
