REAL GONE


KARAOKE VERSION (Background Music Only)
“Go ahead! Sing along if you know it!”

[Verse 1]

I was LDS-raised, baptized, full tithes paid

The Brethren taught us wrong from right

Yo, Israel’s my House

Sometimes I have a big mouth

When I see something that I don’t like

I gotta say it!

Well, we’ve been driving this road for a mighty long time

Paying no mind to the signs

Well this neighborhood’s changed

https://youtu.be/j0i7Z8SyiU0

It’s all been rearranged

We left the Truth somewhere behind

[Chorus]

Slow down, you’re gonna crash

Brethren you were screamin’
It’s a blast, blast, blast

Look out bro’ you got your blinders on

while The Woke are looking for a way

To get real gone

Real gone

Real gone

[Verse 2]

But there’s a new seer in town

https://youtu.be/VH_JwIyutSQ

He’s got high-paid friends

Thinks he’s gonna change history

You think you know them so well

Think the Brethren are swell

But they’re just perpetuating “prophecy”

https://youtu.be/3WVgrO4I-Eg

[Chorus]

(C’mon now!)

Look out, you’ve got your blinders on

While The Woke are looking for a way

“Sneak through the window”

To get real gone (uh uh uh uh)

“I’m the world’s BEST backwards driver. Just watch this right here, lover boy!…
Just need to know where I’ve been! [How’d I do that?] Rear. View. Mirrors.”

Real gone (uh uh uh uh)

“Turn right to go left”

Real gone (uh uh uh uh)

[Verse 3]

Well you can say what you want

‘Cause they’ll catch you and give you a whippin’

Well, I believe we were right

AND NOW FOR
THE REST OF THE STORY BEHIND


The “Me And Grandpa Potamus” Version:
PostMormon parody of the Sheryl Crow song,

Real Gone from Disney’s Cars

Yes, ye “saints”, this “scripture” was “revealed” to me, the “prophetess” February 22, 2020. This “holy writ” was by no means connected to and just coincidentally received only a day after Sam Young made a public Facebook post about a change in Handbook 1 of the LDS Church.

Sam discovered that the definition of apostasy had been altered. He named this change “The Grandpa Potamus Policy,” explaining:

“Rather than changing the policy to protect the children, they changed policy to protect the church against people like Grandpa Potamus objecting to dangerous policies

Sam’s Facebook status update for 21 February 2020
The difference Sam Young noticed in the LDS Handbooks, and has called The Grandpa Potamus Policy. (He is called Grandpa Potamus by his grandchildren.)

This “higher law”, The Parody of Real Gone, although privately shared among family, close associates and the spiritually mature, remained unpublished until September 11, 2020.

According to the divine pattern of botanic reference first established by Brother Joseph when he named “The Olive Leaf” section of the Doctrine and Covenants, our Sister, the Prophetess Katie refers to this revelation as “The Burdock Leaf”.

The leaf of the burdock has long been used to relieve the pain, swelling and itching of poison oak, while its root is a healer, detoxifier, cleanser and probiotic. The burrs, though intelligently designed to GTFO ASAP upon full maturity, are “a bane of ranchers, farmers, [college students and Irish setter] owners. [Yet they] protect the powerful seeds that are strong-acting against acute infections.

1 Corinthians 13:11, as C.S. Lewis saw it.

As I see it, the Grandpa Potamus Policy = Childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

Look at all the very grown up apostles at the very grown up law firm that legally represents the very grown up Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Funny how so many descriptive adjectives ending in “ish” mean “to be somewhat like”… but not in the case of childish. Somehow in English there’s been a distinction made between childish and childlike. Why IS that? I think it is because of the adult hatred and misunderstanding of children… and the blind desire to control and silence these little ones.

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. – Luke 18:16

I saw this post on Sam Young’s page in 2019 and was so touched by the sentiment, that I saved it with a screenshot. It was a promise Sam made good on, over and over again.
