Deliberaing in New Orleans
On what relity really means
If nobody cares nobody stares and then there's nothing to compare
Those ends can't justify the means

But in my gospel state of mind
I try to leave it all behind
Just hold my body till my soul starts burning old
But I can't help thinkin' bout throwing out all I been told

Sittin' on the back porch burning down my torch
Lookin' all around listen to the sound
So many people but there's none of them around
Another day another dollar made another in the grave
Another freed another made a slave
Well that's just me and what I see

Won't push my values in your head
Won't run your life through till you're dead
All I ask is that much from you
And I'll tell you right now that ain't hard to do

Sittin' on the back porch burning down my torch
Lookin' all around listen to the sound
So many people but there's none of them around
Another day another dollar made another in the grave
another freed another made a slave
Well that's just me and what I see
Well that's just me and what I see

Sittin' on the back porch burning down my torch
Lookin' all around listen to the sound
So many people but there's none of them around
Another day another dollar made another in the grave
Another freed another made a slave
Well that's just me and what I see
Well that's just me and what I see
