Album: Keep Your Distance (1986)
Charted: 7 42
  • Sensitive child keep running wild in a confined space
    You're not to blame 'cause you're not the same
    Get on the case crazy sheep, you are the odd one out

    Crazy sheep let them know what you're all about
    Misfit freak that's on the street
    Well, I can see the sorrow in your eyes

    How long? how low?
    How high can you go?
    There'll be a bind for every kind, you'll see

    Sensitive child your threat is so mild, it worries me
    Build yourself some protection to avoid the injection
    Then you can be happy

    Crazy sheep you are the odd on out
    Crazy sheep let them know what you're all about
    Misfit freak that's on the street
    Now I can see the sorrow in your eyes

    Set your mode to emotion, your secret potion
    Designed to satisfy your soul
    And underneath your broken dreams
    You need to satisfy your soul

    Misfit freak that's on the street
    Now I can see the sorrow in your eyes

    Too fat, too thin, you lose or you win
    This may come as some surprise
    Too tall, too short, too loose or too taut
    There'll be a bind for every kind

    Misfit freak that's on the street
    Now I can see the sorrow in your eyes

    Too fat, too thin, you lose or you win
    You've got to satisfy your soul
    And underneath your broken dreams
    You need to satisfy your soul

  • Mickey Knox from Dayton, OhSounded sort of like disco but not too bad. There were a lot of hidden meanings in the verses in my opinion. Drugs, prison, mental hospital, etc. The lyrics about injections and the highs and lows are primarily what made me think of those things.
