Looking in the mirror

SONG BY T BONE BURNETT


I've seen a lot of criminals

I've seen a lot of crimes

Doing a lot of evil deeds

Doing a lot of time.

We speak of these men as aliens

From some forbidden race

We speak of these men as animals

We will lock in a cage.

But there's one man I must arrest

I must interrogate

One man that I must make confess

Then rehabilitate.

There is no other I can blame

No other I can judge

No other I can cast in shame

Then require blood.

There is no crime he cannot

commit

No murder too complex

His heart is filled with larceny

And violence and sex.

His heart is filled with envy

And revenge and greed

His heart is filled with nothing

His heart is filled with need.

He's capable of anything

Of any vicious act

This criminal is dangerous

The criminal under my own hat.


Paul, Chief of Sinners

"This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief .“—I Tim. 1:15
