Forgive Me

I'm sorry for my mood tonight
Please don't hold me to blame
The world has just gone crazy
The injustice is insane
A guy downtown was murdered
And he doesn't have a name
The news tonight will give the gunman
Primetime TV fame

Forgive me
I'm not sure what I've said
Forgive me
I'm half out of my head
I know it's no excuse
If you'll forgive me while I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me

I saw a big street battle
As I left work today
Rocks and bottles flying
As I tried to get away
There were so many that
The cops gave them the right of way
And I was happy just to make it
Home alive today

Forgive me
I'm not sure what I've said
Forgive me
I'm half out of my head
I know it's no excuse
If you'll forgive me while I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me

I see them eating dinner
From the trash we leave at noon
The talker on his platform
Giving prophecies of doom
It sometimes makes me wish I could
Stay locked in my cocoon
Just playing soulful music
In the safety of my room

Forgive me
I'm not sure what I've said
Forgive me
I'm half out of my head
I know it's no excuse
If you'll forgive me while I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me

I may have been a little harsh
I may have been real cruel
I've been a little angry
Shouldn't take it out on you
You are the one bright light that shines
My rock and solid glue
I hope you will forgive me
For the things I've said to you

Forgive me
I'm not sure what I've said
Forgive me
I'm half out of my head
I know it's no excuse
And you'll forgive me if I scream
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
