Jesus was a man
He was better than you or I
They didn't tell him
No, they didn't tell him
You didn't know

Hitler was a man
He didn't know what to do anymore
Everybody said someone else
But we know that's a lie

Yeah,
Gandhi was a man
He took the millions and gave them more
We all adore

I said it long ago
Where the situation screams so true
All of it was long ago in humanity
So climb out of the cradle
And show yourself to the rest of humanity
Cause I told you long ago even though you knew yourself
And all you thought was true,
So true,
Too true...

Pieces of you
Little pieces, little pieces of you
Oh, little pieces of me and you

Jesus was a man
He was better than you or I
No one told him, no one knew

Hitler was a man
You know it
In humanity to man

Pieces of you
Little pieces of me and you

Ohhh, little pieces of me and you
Ohhh, oh oh oh

My guitar doesn't work and I wanna play a lead solo!

    General CommentWhat the lyrics seem to be suggesting -- seems to be that humanity is capable of greatness and moral virtue or, conversely evil. Not the deepest of songs. They say Michael Hutchins was drunk. At any rate, I wanted to say I miss Michael Hutchins' music -- that rock 'n roll lifestyle... it can kill.
