lyrics

“Don’t tell me what to do rich boy
“Don’t tell me what I am old man
“It ain’t doing no good to me
“Your good book there in your hand
“Did you spend a lot of time practicing
“Reciting your words so perfectly
“Are you trying to win a gold star
“Is you preacher giving trips to Hawaii?”

Is it in our minds is it in our eyes?
What do we do Lord what do we do?

“Did I hear ‘love’ a couple of times
“I guess it’s hard for me to tell
“I look at you and your teeth are smiling
“Your eyes despise me for my look and smell”
Uttering the same old phrases
Looking for brightness in the faces
Seeing anger an indignation
We left God out of the equation

It’s in our minds it’s in our eyes
What do we do Lord tell us what to do?

Once I spoke the same old joyful words
And I said them with conviction
And that fire still burns inside
Though my world put a mote in my eye
Makes it harder to see the prize

Hades sufferers cry out
From doom’s other side
“Warn my family warn my friends
“Bring them to Jesus from satan’s lies”
