"Mr. Sensitive" as written by Michael Maida and David Cook....
Day in and day out.
Watch 'em scream watch 'em shout
Through the silence
Through the silence.
Give 'em ears give 'em eyes
Gives some point to the cries
And the violence
Oh the violence

[Chorus]
Hear 'em scream your name
I would like to introduce Mr. Sensitive
The one who never let the worst
Get the best of him
Get the best of him

This city feels low
Against the gleam and the glow
Of its diligence to their elegance.
Just feel anger feel pain
Feel the sun and the rain
Just feel something.
Oh feel something.

[Chorus]

They throw the stones at bricks and bones
He didn't stand a chance, they said
Little boy, the world is over
Ignorance is bliss

I would like to introduce Mr. sensitive
The one who never let the worst
Get the best of him
I would like to introduce Mr. sensitive
The one who never let the worst
Get the best of him
Get the best of him.

    General CommentThis is what David said it was about in that EW interview with Chris Willman...

    Was the title of "Mr. Sensitive" meant to be ironic in any way?

    David: The song was unintentionally ironic. I had the harmonic riff in my head for five months. In my lyric journal, I had "Mr. Sincere" written down, and sincere turned into sensitive. I wanted to write about something outside myself and get a little metaphorical. He lives in a village devoid of feeling. They get so afraid of this child who has feelings that they kill him. It kind of took on this Tim Burton-like, twisted vision of James and the Giant Peach for me. But I know people look at me as that sensitive guy.

    General Commentoh. i thought it was about his brother, and the battles he goes through. but david knows better than anyone what his songs are about.

    and this is completely off-topic, but i would just like to point out that david cook has the most piercing and soulful eyes ever. amen.
