the faculty may say that I have no brain,
I am a child anyhow,
could never understand it through my ADD,
they've called me a monster ever since you

came back from Houston

when your hair is falling you remember to pray
when the chaos starts you will understand pain
you're setting up this radio we bought you on father's day
keeping your composure hasn't been insane until you

came back from Houston

they say god loves all his children
that's what the friendly women say
they came over when you were out at work
and sat in little circles and begged for you to stay

come back from Houston
