One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside

from John Lennon – Crippled Inside Lyrics on Rap Genius


Lennon would later express resentment at the fact that his serious political message had to be sugarcoated by parody in order to get airplay. He said of the Imagine album’s eponymous intro:

“an anti-religious, anti-nationalistic, anti-conventional, anti-capitalistic song, but because it’s sugar-coated, it’s accepted.”
