about

In September of 2004, Jed Davis (The Hanslick Rebellion, Skyscape) assembled a five-piece to record his protest song "With Love From America." And what a group: Eschatone's Brian Dewan on accordion; guitarist Sean Gould and bassist St3ve Ruchelman of Bandcamp; Matt Johnson (John Mayer, Jeff Buckley) on the drums; and Jed himself on vocals and keyboards.

The B-side of this single is Jed's world-famous recording of the Randy Newman classic "Political Science." Strike a blow for freedom with The Congregation Of Vapors!

Track Name: With Love From America
With outstretched arm and steady hands
With focused gaze and perfect plans
With picket fences, capes and tights
With microscopes and satellites
My truth shines on.

With outstretched arm and steady hands
With history books and marching bands
With candy hearts and valentines
You make me yours, I’ll make you mine
My truth shines on.

How
How could you hate me?
I don’t care.
I love you.
I don’t care.
I love you and I don’t care.
With love from America.

With outstretched arm and steady hands
With fire to tame the savage lands
With full support from God above
With holy light and missionary love
My truth shines on.

Why
Why do you hate me?
I don’t care.
I love you.
I don’t care.
I love you and I don’t care.
With love from America.

The Greatest Story Ever Told
Of crystal walls and streets of gold
Of all the nice things you deserve
Of spacious skies and billions and billions and billions and billions served
My truth shines on.

I
I’ll make you like me.
I
I’ll make you just like me
And I don’t care.
I love you.
I don’t care.
I love you and I don’t care.
With love from America.
Come take your love from America.
