"Love (To Be Your Main)" as written by Root Jackson and Alan Fealdman....
[[This is the best I could do by ear. Corrections welcome.]]

I've heard this world is cold
And when it turns on me
I hope you'll help me see
And in end you'll keep my soul

If it's off where the limit changed
In the heart of the spent machine
Givin' soft ____ through the main
It's all right, it's OK

Cause my eyes are open
And the city lies in waste
And I tried and I tried
To be your main

And when this world is mine
And it still turns on me
I hope you'll set me free
Emancipate me from my crime
Give the answer that said good luck
Send the years back attending love
Can the axis and lift me up
It's all rigt to give up

Cause my eyes are open
And the city lies in flames
And I stop to breathe and know
That nothing's burned away
Cause not everybody's got to believe
In some fucking lie that threw our heads
And I tried and I tried to be your main

I wear your hex to the seams
And I bend your sorrow
And I'm not the one that I seem
For what comes tomorrow

It's not everyone
Cause not everyone
Cause not everyone can change

In the harsh light of the day
Is your wirey, blessed babe
When he talks of the Jesus Christ
It's OK, it's all right

Cause my eyes are open
And the city is in sight
And I stop to breathe
And throw my caution to the night

Cause not everybody's got to believe
In some fucking take of what I might
But I tried and I tried to be your main
Yeah, I tried and I tried

To love everyone [3x]
I love everyone

So c'mon
So c'mon
So c'mon, get saved

    General CommentThis is the singer's excuse song about not believing in God. "I don't mind if other people believe," he's saying, "but I tried it, and it didn't work for me."
