HE'LL SAVE ME I've got my head on what the bible said I let the bible set me free and you've got your heart in the devil's hands and in your pagan misery And don't it feel lonely to know you'll never be holy We've got room enough only for the ones who don't ask tough questions CHORUS: No matter what I do He'll love me Whatever I say He'll save me As long as I pray I know I'll get my way When it comes the judgement day It's not hard, it's easy I don't have to be nice, I know he forgives me Jesus Christ, who do you think you are? Telling me I've gone too far I earned this life I climbed to corporate heights Working and living by His word A three-car garage and my weekly massage I only take what I deserve But see the mothers on welfare? Think I should pay for their healthcare? DOn't you think I know better than to hand out rewards to beggars CHORUS Don't you know that I'm a Christian? Can't you see that I'm a Christian? When you die you'll all be wishin' You'd been a God-fearin' Christian She's going to hell another fetus killed The Lord's commandments say it's true But God bless my son as he aims his gun at the cursed Afghani fool A husband and a father with a loving wife and daughter But soldiers never falter When defending there God and Country CHORUS Don't you know that I'm a Christian? Can't you see that I'm a Christian? When you die you'll all be wishin' You'd been a God-fearin' Christian

In America 04:06
One by one we fall in line To reach for the precious prize To the promised land singing yes we can Stomachs bigger than our eyes It's yelled out loud and it's murmured low There's a chance for you and me To have all we dreamed and even more it seems That's the curse of liberty Welcome to America: the land of the rich and free Where hard work gets rewarded And the money grows on trees Well it's rags to riches baby That's our story and we're sticking to it If you don't make it big You can't claim the game was rigged 'Cause in America You manifest your own destiny So stack the deck and deal a hand And if your daddy's rich Every card you hold will be turned to gold For a white man and his tricks And you'll stop to think as you comb your hair And straighten out your tie How the bottom few could be privileged too If they'd buckle down and try Welcome to America the land of the rich and free Where hard work gets rewarded And the money grows on trees Well it's rags to riches baby That's our story and we're sticking to it If you don't make it big You can't claim the game was rigged 'Cause in America You manifest your own destiny In America They say the rest is history Tunnel vision makes you stronger Narcissism is the way to get ahead Don't you ever stop to wonder About the ones you had to pay to make your bed Ninety-nine we fall behind While one fool takes the prize But we won't stay down forever See it twitching in our eyes A revolution is on its way And there's no way to hide All the earnings that you've stolen All your greed and all your pride Welcome to America The land of the filthy free Where hard work gets you no where And the money is diseased Well, rags to riches baby That's a tall tale, but we're sticking to it 'Cause if you make it big And even if the game was rigged In America You manifest your own destiny In America They say the rest is history

about

Kilgour sings about love and family well, but most compelling are her songs about human nature, societal shortfalls and our own potential to create change. “Whistleblower's Manifesto”, is a three-song EP jam-packed with her newest, most thought-provoking pieces. Kilgour plans to promote the recordings with a tour during the spring of 2013.
