Oh, my God, look around this place Your fingers reach around the bone You set the break and set the tone Flights of grace and future falls In present pain, all fools say, "Oh, my God"
Oh, my God, why are we so afraid? We make it worse when we don't bleed There is no cure for our disease Turn a phrase and rise again Or fake your death and only tell Your closest friends, oh, my God
Oh, my God, can I complain? You take away my firm belief And graft my soul upon your grief Weddings, boats and alibis All drift away and a mother cries
Liars and fools, sons and failures Thieves will always say Lost and found, ailing wanderers Healers always say
Whores and angels, men with problems Leavers always say Broken hearted, separated Orphans always say
War creators, racial haters Preachers always say Distant fathers, fallen warriors Givers always say
Pilgrim saints, lonely widows Users always say Fearful mothers, watchful doubters Saviors always say
Sometimes I can not forgive These days mercy cuts so deep If the world was how it should be Maybe I could get some sleep
While I lay, I'd dream we're better Scales were gone and faces lighter When we wake, we hate our brother We still move to hurt each other
Sometimes I can close my eyes And all the fear that keeps me silent Falls below my heavy breathing What makes me so badly bent?
We all have a chance to murder We all have the need for wonder We still want to be reminded That the pain is worth the plunder
Sometimes when I lose my grip I wonder what to make of Heaven All the times I thought to reach up All the times I had to give up
Babies underneath their beds Hospitals that cannot treat them All the wounds that money causes All the comforts of cathedrals
All the cries of thirsty children This is our inheritance All the rage of watching mothers This is our greatest offense
Oh, my God Oh, my God Oh, my God

Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
