Don't Pray On Me

Lyrics | Track Details

A grizzly scene on my electron beam
told a story about human rights
So all of Kings horses
and all of Kings men
had a riot
for two days and nights
Well, the city exploded
but the gates wouldn't open
so the company asked him to quit
Now everybody's equal
Just don't measure it
Well Hanson did it to hester
and Mark David did it to John
and maybe Jack did it to Marilyn
but he did it to South Vietnam
For beauty and glory
for money, love and country
Everybody's doing it,
Don't do that to me
I don't know what stopped
Jesus Christ from turning
every hungry stone into bread
and I don't remember hearing
how Moses reacted
when the innocent first born sons
lay dead
Well I guess
God was a lot more demonstrative
back when he
flamboyantly parted the sea
Now everybody's praying
Don't prey on me
