Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
If pain was a color to paint on you
Your heart would be the color blue

Be a painting, hung up there till your body met your head
Which were made of silver

[Chorus 1]
You are the one they call Jesus Christ
Who did not know no rock and roll
Just a mission made of guns that they give boys in Vietnam
But they always told him


[Chorus 2]
There is madness in us all
There is madness in us all

[Chorus 3]
So
Who broke the rules?
Who broke the rules?
Who broke the rules?

[Chorus 4]
They said
Every one of you will never try to lend a hand
When the police men do not understand

[Chorus 5]
Oh you boys, all you boys
Think you are so American
Girls, all you girls
They are so American

[Verse 2]
He may not be born of this land
But he was born of this world
He was born of all the mothers
And the colors of our brothers
And the love that we sent him

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]

[Chorus 3]

[Chorus 4]

[Chorus 5]

There is two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all

[Outro]
Man, oh man
Think you are so American
Man, oh man
Yeah you are so American

There are two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all
