about

Why is it that we bring our prejudices with us when we evangelize? Helping the poor starts with not labeling them as "poor".

lyrics

Might I say you look radiant in white
I've come to stay for a couple of nights
Just so I can clear my head
Of all the things that the others have said
The padded walls are really a sight
They keep me safe from the torturous nights
I take so many pills in a day
They do their best to keep the demons away

I like the hum of the fluorescent tubes
They make me feel like I'm something of use
When I imagine that I'm p on stage
Conducting the electrical age

I am a person, not a specimen
So don't treat me like a trite experiment
Your Jesus Christ would seem more genuine
If you would do the things you said he did

I don't think they understand me...
It's okay, well, it's none of their faults
They try not to offend me
By denying their cynical thoughts
