The Good News, Culture and Anabaptism…

January 27, 2009

Third Eye Blind – Non Dairy Creamer (new studio version!)

Steve opened our class last evening with this video.   Here are some of the questions we considered as we reflected on the song, the lyrics–our culture and how the Good News (of Jesus Christ) intersects:

Who is the person singing this song?   Is this person in our church?  What is this person saying?  What is the Good News to this person?

Here are the lyrics:

They call it KFC
‘Cause it’s not really chicken
Hot chettos for breakfast
Make a young student sick and
Did you ever think someone’s trickin’ you… you, you, you?

And the guy in the pulpit
Is a biggit and a lie
Some kid walks into my school and opens fire
Heard any good jokes lately?
‘Cause we sure do need ’em
My punk band’s called Operation Iraqi Freedom

What’s it gonna be?
Are you real to me?
Or are you non dairy… creamer?

A new love is burning up with me
‘Cause 1 in 4 American girls has an STD.
And you can buy yourself some implants
But you can’t buy a soul that never launched

(2x)With your chest pumped out
What are you so afraid about?

(2x)What are you so afraid of?

What’s it gonna be?
Are you real to me?
Or are you non dairy… creamer?

And two gay guys got married
And brought the family to its knees
How did they blow us to smithereens
Just a couple of queens
How did they do it
I’ll tell you now
They brought marriage to an end
And I’ve found myself some culprits

It’s two young gay… REPUBLICANSSSS
Young gay republicansss
Young gay republicansss
Young gay republicansss

What’s it gonna be?
Are you real to me?
Or are you non dairy… creamer?

(4x)Mission Accomplished

    I was reading a couple of other posts that mentioned “authenticity” — one mentioned it as a concern of modernity.

    I wasn’t sure what people meant by “authenticity”, but I suppose it is a non-characteristic of non-dairy creamer.
