Jackson BrowneCasino Nation

In a weapons producing nation under Jesus In the fabled crucible of the free world Camera crews search for clues amid the detritus And entertainment shapes the land The way the hammer shapes the hand Gleaming faces in the checkout counter at the Church of Fame The lucky winners cheer Casino Nation All those not on TV only have themselves to blame And don't quite seem to understand The way the hammer shapes the hand Out beyond the ethernet the spectrum spreads DC to daylight, the cowboy mogul rides Never worry where the gold for all this glory's gonna come from Get along dogies, it's coming out of your hides The intentional cultivation of a criminal class The future lit by brightly burning bridges Justice fully clothed to hide the heart of glass That shatters in a thousand Ruby Ridges And everywhere the good prepare for perpetual war And let their weapons shape the plan The way the hammer shapes the hand Lyrics by Jackson Browne Music by Jackson Browne, Kevin McCormick, Mark Goldenberg, Mauricio Lewak, Jeff Young (Swallow Turn Music, ASCAP; Eye Cue Music, ASCAP; Bossypants Music/Songs of Windswept Pacific, BMI; Bateria Music, ASCAP; Glad Brad Music, Inc., ASCAP)
