Five Black Robes (2015)

So all in the name of love says he that wins at the end of the day

Marriage is no longer, the Bible's sacred way

It was a court of nine that changed an aged old tradition

Amazing how much power we have given to the politician

"We the People" If I recall, was the history I was taught

Now we are nothing but puppets to whom the politicos were bought

There is no more "we" for the people in this land

Unless we bow to the mighty powerful Uncle Sam

Don't get me wrong my friends, for gays I have no quarrel

It is not for me to say what some would say is immoral

I am not your judge or jury it's not for me to decide

But if you wear a black long robe, you can change the tide

The fabric of this nation was found on God given rights

And a man and woman in marriage was never a political fight

It was custom and tradition for many thousands of years

But 5 judges just cast it away amid there homophobic fears

A man loves man or a woman loves woman that's okay with me

Because we are individuals from sea to shining sea

One cannot change his heart no more than he can change his color

But five robes should not get to speak for all of the other

So who will speak for the Christian who believes tradition should stay

I guess the ones in black robes care much more for the gay

We have the first amendment and the exercise of religion

Not much left of that one, maybe just a smidgen

Seems every where we go, religion is being attacked

I wonder when will the black robes pen a case for that

Instead we must make our cakes for weddings to which we disagree

Religion takes a back seat to commerce and economy

But more than that, we've whisked away all that symbolizes God

From our courts and public buildings from our mountains and our sod

The Cross must come down for it offends a few in this nation

But we all must accept gay marriage because of 5 black robes occupation

So I am sure some will call me a bigot or maybe even worse

If you do, you miss the message of this very verse

Who you love same or different is really not the point

All I've said it is not for five black robes to anoint

In the end I have no problem for a gays legal right to marriage

But he who does, must have respect for those who do not share it

A photographer or baker of simple Christian belief

Should have the right to choose through faith and not be given grief

So I say to the mighty black robes what's next for you to say

We can marry three, or four, or our pets, why of course we may

Because as it was stated so eloquently that love wins in the end

For we are the black robes in control with the power of the pen
