  •  What stays in my head: (4.00)
    From Melissa:


    Showers of your crimson blood
    Seep into a nation calling up a flood
    Of narrow minds who legislate
    Thinly veiled intolerance
    Bigotry and hate

    But they tortured and burned you
    They beat you and they tied you
    They left you cold and breathing
    For love they crucified you

    I can't forget hard as I try
    This silhouette against the sky

    Scarecrow crying
    Waiting to die wondering why
    Scarecrow trying
    Angels will hold carry your soul away

    This was our brother
    This was our son
    This shepherd young and mild
    This unassuming one
    We all gasp this can't happen here
    We're all much too civilized
    Where can these monsters hide

    But they are knocking on our front door
    They're rocking in our cradles
    They're preaching in our churches
    And eating at our tables

    I search my soul
    My heart and in my mind
    To try and find forgiveness
    This is someone child
    With pain unreconciled
    Filled up with father's hate
    Mother's neglect
    I can forgive But I will not forget

    Scarecrow crying
    Waiting to die wondering why
    Scarecrow trying
    Rising above all in the name of love
