Forgive Me
_________________________________________

I知 sorry for my mood tonight
Please don稚 hold me to blame
The world has just gone crazy
The injustice is insane
A guy downtown was murdered
And he doesn稚 have a name
The news tonight will give the gunman
Primetime TV fame

Forgive me
I知 not sure what I致e said
Forgive me
I知 half out of my head
I know it痴 no excuse
If you値l forgive me while I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me

I saw a big street battle
As I left work today
Rocks and bottles flying
As I tried to get away
There were so many that
The cops gave them the right of way
And I was happy just to make it
Home alive today

Forgive me
I知 not sure what I致e said
Forgive me
I知 half out of my head
I know it痴 no excuse
If you値l forgive me while I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me

I see them eating dinner
From the trash we leave at noon
The talker on his platform
Giving prophecies of doom
It sometimes makes me wish I could
Stay locked in my cocoon
Just playing soulful music
In the safety of my room

Forgive me
I知 not sure what I致e said
Forgive me
I知 half out of my head
I know it痴 no excuse
If you値l forgive me while I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me

I may have been a little harsh
I may have been real cruel
I致e been a little angry
Shouldn稚 take it out on you
You are the one bright light that shines
My rock and solid glue
I hope you will forgive me
For the things I致e said to you

Forgive me
I知 not sure what I致e said
Forgive me
I知 half out of my head
I know it痴 no excuse
And you値l forgive me if I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
