lyrics

Show me the light, 'cause it's all black and white
Back here in Kansas again
Where a scarecrow could cry when children ask why
This world was so badly planned

Who made us stubborn and blind?
Why were we so poorly designed?
Who made us softer than bullets?

And who turned the bones of fish into stone
Fish that wished they could walk on land
Where we lived in fear, holding sharp stones and spears
In our tender, clawless hands?

Who made us stubborn and blind?
Why were we so poorly designed?
Who made us softer than bullets?
Who made us softer - softer than bullets?

All this, they say, took only six days
Then the next day was Sunday
It was just begun, so much more to be done
But no one showed up on Monday

Oh, I want to go
Somewhere under the rainbow
Where I can believe what I want to believe
Not what I know is so

Who made us stubborn and blind?
Why were we so poorly designed?
Who made us quick to catch fire,
Thirsty for blood, weaker than desire?
Who made us softer than bullets?
Who made us softer than bullets?
Who made us softer - softer than bullets?
