Gods of Old

Gods of Old

(Words and Music K. Johnson)

Oh great Zeus its not your fault  That we forgot your mighty thunderbolt
Will your story still be told  Now that you are a god of old.
Take a look and you’ll see
That for all antiquity
It’s just tomorrow’s mythology

Oh Ra where have you gone  Did Jesus Christ sing your swan song
Will your story still be bought and sold  Now that you are a god of old.
It’s all make believe
That’s been proven through antiquity
We don’t need them they’re all mythology

CHORUS
I want a new one
How about a blue one
Old one is on the run
Time has come for the next one.

How long will the latest god last, what caused the last one to become the past
Will their legends still be told  Now that they are gods of old
Take a look and you’ll see
That for all antiquity
It’s just tomorrows mythology

CHORUS

If these gods don’t work we’ll make some more. One for the rich and one for the poor
Now those beliefs are always there They come from the elite, from men who don’t share.
I want a new one
How about a blue one
Old one is on the run
Time has come for the next one.
