Monday Entertainment: Word on a Wing #MondayMotivation #MusicMonday

In a followup to “Station to Station” and “Golden Years“, the third track from David Bowie‘s prophetic album “Station to Station” is a straightforward discussion of faith and destiny in “Word on a Wing“.  The protagonist, the Thin White Duke, in many ways a foreshadowing of Donald Trump, discusses his struggles with faith and the Lord’s Will while maintaining continued belief.  He is then ordained with the grace of God.

Likewise, Trump has admittedly struggled with his faith in getting divorced twice and losing his brother Fred Jr. to alcoholism.  However, today, Trump is widely recognized as a true believer.  He cites the Bible as his favorite book and won the largest share of evangelicals of any previous presidential candidate.  As President Elect, with his “word on a wing” accepted, Trump is “ready to shape the scheme of things” in bringing about the Lord’s Will.

Lord, I kneel and offer you
my word on a wing
And I’m trying hard to fit
among your scheme of things

It’s safer than a strange land
But I still care for myself
And I don’t stand in my own light
Lord, lord, my prayer flies
like a word on a wing

My prayer flies
like a word on a wing
Does my prayer fit in
with your scheme of things?

In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
out of my dreams
Sweet name, you’re born once again for me
Just as long as I can see, I’ll never stop this vision flowing
I look twice and you’re still flowing
Just as long as I can walk
I’ll walk beside you, I’m alive in you
Sweet name, you’re born once again for me
And I’m ready to shape the scheme of things
