lyrics

everyone is just so very precious
but not everyone here is gonna get this
my tongue is a gun, my words are weapons
the father, the son, the spirit said this:
"I love the world to much to let it get to me, I love the world too much"

are you tuned out or you tuned into this message?
are you listening or are you transfixed by the image?
i bet the world don't know why it's so offensive
to strip the safety from the safest of spaces

slow! children crossing!

at 18 i was a soldier of war
at 21 they let me in through the door
at 33 they'll let me hang out to dry
at 64 maybe they'll let me retire
"I love the world to much to let it get to me, I love the world too much"

in '76, the rockets' red glare
in '84, nobody cared
in y2k, the big bug bit
in 2012, everyone quit

slow! children crossing!
mama hold my hand and look both ways!
slow! children crossing!
mama hold my hand and look both ways!
