Lyrics

Lay me down There's a lot of us Been pushed around Red or yellow Black or white and brown With a tear of their own Oh, can't you see While you're picking on society That the leaves on your family tree Are calling you to come home? You're the keeper of the castle So be a father to your children A provider of all their daily needs Like a sword in lord protector Be their desperate needs director They'll do well to follow Where you lead Oh, in your head You don't believe What the Good Book said You're gonna strike out now instead 'Cause the world's been unkind

But through thick and thin Whatever shape your heart is in You only have one next of kin Better keep 'em in mind You're the keeper of the castle So be a good man to your baby A creator of the sunshine in her day In the garden that you've seeded Be a friend when a friend is needed You won't have to look the other way Lay me down There's a lot of us Been pushed around Red or yellow Black or white and brown With a tear of their own Oh, can't you see How you're picking on society That the leaves on your family tree Are begging you to come on home? Lay me down There's a lot of us Been pushed around Red or yellow Black or white and brown With a tear of their own In your head You don't believe What the Good Book said You're gonna strike....
