SPOOKY TOOTH


Society's Child Lyrics

Come to my door, baby
Face is clean and shining black as night
Mama went to answer you know
Said you looked so fine
Now I can understand your tears and your pain
She called you girl instead of your name
When she wouldn't let you inside
When she turned and said
"But honey, she's not our kind"

She says I can't see you anymore, baby
Can't see you anymore

Walk me down to school, baby
People acting like they're deaf and blind
'Til they turn and say
"Why don't you stick to your own kind"
My teachers laugh, their smirking stares
Cutting deep down in our affairs
Preachers of equality
They said believe it
Then why won't they just let us be?

She said I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore

One of these days I'm gonna stop my listening
Gonna raise my head up high
One of these days I'm gonna spread
My glistening wings and fly
But that day will have to wait for a while
Baby, I'm only society's child
When we're older, things may change
But for now that's the way they must remain

I say I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore
I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore
