Lyrics

I WENT DOWN TO THE GARDEN WITHOUT YOU YEA
WHEN YOU TOLD ME THAT YOU WERE A DESCENDANT OF JESUS
I DIDN’T WANT TO KNOW THAT MUCH ABOUT YOU YEA
'TIL YOU SAID THAT YOU HOPE SOMEONE WOULD BELIEVE IN US

I SAID I’M ONLY HUMAN SO PLEASE PARDON MY BEHAVIOR
BUT I DON’T HAVE THE GENETICS OF A SAVIOR

I DON’T WANT TO WEAR NO CROWN OF THORNS
OR PUT ON A SPACEMAN’S UNIFORM
I DON’T WANT TO LIVE IN A CROWDED DORM
WITH ALL THOSE FLEDGLING ANGELS

I CAN’T PICK UP ALL THE BRICKS
THAT IT TAKES FOR YOUR EGYPTIAN KICKS
BUT I LOVE THE ORANGE HELMETS
OF THE CINCINNATI BENGALS

SHE SAID I’M HERE TO FREE YOU OR TO DRIVE YOU INTO SLAVERY
AND YOU’LL BE JUDGED BY YOUR KINDNESS NOT YOUR BRAVERY

I LOOKED OUT OF MY WINDOW AND THE SUN HAD TURNED TO STONE
AND I DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE MY ROOM ALL DAY
I TAUGHT MY TONGUE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH
FROM BOTH SIDES OF MY MOUTH
NOW IT SEEMS THAT TRUTH HAS SLOWLY SLIPPED AWAY

I SAID I’M ONLY HUMAN SO PLEASE PARDON MY BEHAVIOR
BUT I DON’T HAVE THE GENETICS OF A SAVIOR

I DON’T WANT TO BE THE ONE TO TELL YOU
ALL ABOUT HOW YOU’RE GOING TO HELL
YOU CAN’T IMAGINE MY DISMAY
I’M INCOMMUNICADO
PILGRIMS LAND ON ROCKY SHORES
AND TURN THE NATIVES INTO WHORES
AND WATCH THE WHITE FACED JAPANESE WOMEN
DANCING THE MIKADO

SHE SAID I’M HERE TO FREE YOU OR TO DRIVE YOU INTO SLAVERY
AND YOU’LL BE JUDGED BY YOUR KINDNESS NOT YOUR BRAVERY
I SAID I’M ONLY HUMAN SO PLEASE PARDON MY BEHAVIOR
BUT I DON’T HAVE THE GENETICS OF A SAVIOR
