about

cursed is he who trusts in man

lyrics

who am I to point the finger
who am I to lay the blame
I got miracles
I got big ideas 
but baby I ain't got no shame
well I came to be your savior
I came to speak my mind
but I lost my spine when a polaroid caught me
having a good time

and I can't get up
no no no

who am I to wear the white veil
when I let the curtain fall
I know I swore so help me God
but he don't return my calls
who am I to point the finger
who am I to play it straight
in the promised land all the drinks are free
and the devil stays out late

and I can't get up
no no no

shake hands with the money, baby
now you got me low
don't want nobody else to save me
now you got me low

who am I to flaunt my goodness
in this flesh fair of conceit
compromise makes inviting eyes
til you forget she's selling lies
who am to fly with wax wings
now I got no place to land
the busboy spills it for a twenty
shuts up for twenty grand

I can't get up
no no no

shake hands with the money, etc. 

who am I to point the finger
who am I to lay the blame 
the dogs are digging at my heels
the dogs are snapping at my name
who am I to call the White House
when the miracle is gone
the Spirit leaves you when you take it
but you know the flesh holds on
