Track Name: Look at the Man
They say he seems to be destined for great things
As they pull his strings, to make him move

Potential for great reach with perfect skin, straight teeth
Naturally born to lead, like a needle in a groove

Look at the man and see him
It ain’t easy keeping secrets
He runs around so hopelessly wanting peace

They say where did we go wrong. Our son puts make up on
And wears his hair and nails long. Lord what do we do?

He’s pulled his strings all off. His perfect skin has sloughed
This is him, let go of the grip you hold on your mold

Look at the man and see him
It ain’t easy keeping secrets
He runs around so hopelessly wanting peace
You’ve got to realize, the truth is no interpretation
Let your thesis fall to pieces
And open up your mind now and let him be

In need of some acts of kindness, in the name of love
Time to put down the hammer and pick the pieces up

Look at the man and see him
It ain’t easy keeping secrets
He runs around so hopelessly wanting peace
