God Bless the NFL

from The Light Has Gone Out of My Life by Harborer



this is a song about the pro football hall of fame. i live very close to it and soon they will demolish my house, in order to install a manmade hill.


god bless the NFL
they've worked too hard to treat us well
i wish they knew my name
but to them we're all the same

the sounds of bulldozers
all the way across the street
they infiltrate my recordings
they take me to a place in my mind
i've never known

god bless the USA
it seems to get worse each day
we love our football team
please tell me it's all a dream

they'll take my house down
just as they've done all around
my childhood turned to ashes and debris
my lovely evergreen reduced to a novelty
an underwhelming christmas tree

god bless the hall of fame
what they've done seems like such a shame
a whole neighborhood turned to a field
out my window looks so surreal

it stays empty through the night
this place used to be filled with life
pretty soon my home will be gone
along with my memories of everyone
i can't do this myself
i don't have any help
i'm falling farther down this hole
i'm losing grasp of my soul
