Cargo Cult Deity

Lyrics by Joel Byers & C. Scott Davis and Music by Vernon Reid


Look in your hut, what do you see?
The Cargo Cult Deity
I know your prayer, I know your needs
I have all your wants across the sea.

Oh, Iím the Cargo Cult Deity
Like God and Jesus, you pray to me
Iím the Cargo Cult Deity
The Cargo Cult Deity
The Cargo Cult Deity

Planes up high, in the sky
When the English speak, they always lie
My gifts were yours, donít you see
But they stole it from the Sea

I am John Fromm, your God you see
Iím the one who can give you TV
Oh, I'm the Cargo Cult Deity
They steal your gifts and withhold the key
It can be yours, just pray to me

Oh, Iím the Cargo Cult Deity
Build me a plane, and get goods for free
Oh, Iím the Cargo Cult Deity
The Cargo Cult Deity
The Cargo Cult Deity

Iím John Fromm, donít you agree?
When cargo falls, grab it and flee
I tell you truely, just believe
Stealth and Quickness is the key

Do you want fortune?
Do you want fame?
Whisper to John Fromm, just say my name
Cargo is waiting, Itís yours you see

Oh, I'm, the, Car, go, Cult, De, i, ty
I'm the Cargo, I'm the Cargo, I'm the Cargo, I'm the Cargo
I'm the Cargo, I'm the Cargo, I'm the Cargo, I'm the Cargo
Cult Deity!
