Everybody needs a little place they can hide
Somewhere to call their own
Don't let nobody inside
Every now and then we all need to let go
For some it's the doctor
For me it's rock and roll
For some it's a bottle
For some it's a pill
Some people wave the Bible
Cause it's giving them a thrill
Others point their finger
If they don't like what they see
If you live in a glass house
Don't be throwing rocks at me

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and it'll be alright

Check out Mr. Politician in his suit and tie
But when the doors are closed
There ain't nothin' he won't try
Meanwhine Mr. Medicine's
treating his best friend's wife
Tipper lead the war against the record industry
She said she saw the devil on her MTV
To look into the cabinet
It takes more than a key
Just like Jimmy's skeletons
And his ministry

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and it'll be alright

Hit it now

For some it's the needle
For some it's the kill
Some people wave the Bible
'Cause it's giving them a thrill
You can spend your money
Before you get your pay
With a toss of the dice
You can piss it all away

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and it'll be alright

    General CommentI think overall, it's a general statement of "let he who is without sin cast the first stone", in other words, get your own house in order before you dare criticize anyone else.
    Nobody's perfect, and everyone has a 'vice'.
