"Foolish" as written by and Ike Turner....
Some people say that I threw my brain away
That I'm illogical and don't have much to say
Some people say that it's foolish to believe
In what we cannot see, so we're deceived

All that I can do is listen to you
All that you can be is out there, you'll see

Every single time that I
Explain to you my reasons why
You turn away; you close your eyes
And then you cut me down to size

Some people say that I threw my vote away
The moment I decided to live life this way
Some people say that it's foolish to believe
In what we cannot see, so we're deceived
I'm not here to make you all agree
But have you truly studied this historically?

Every single time that I
Explain to you my reasons why
You turn away; you close your eyes
And then you cut me down to size

Every single time that I
Explain to you my reasons why
You turn away; you close your mind
Your heart's just not prepared to find
Some meaning, some meaning

Just wait, and listen to that voice
It calls so quietly, for you to make a choice
What will it be? What will it be?

    General Commenti think its about how people say you're stupid if you believe in God, coz you cant see him. and how when he tries to explain to those people, they never want to listen to him. and in even those people can hear Him calling to them, but its altimately their own decision how they live their lives out day by day.

    General Commenti'm sure being in Mike's shoes can be a very difficult situation... making a career in a punk band and living as a Christian at the same time. I'm sure Mike, Tom, and Yuri get a lot of criticism from a lot of people they interract with for what they believe in. I'm sure it's frustrating for them to be criticized yet don't have any room to even explain their beliefs to people because they don't want to listen.
