A no-good Shepherd lost all the sheep,
Yeah, he got drunk and fell asleep
and now theyre running through the streets.
Causing a commotion,
Yeah, theyre holding up the progress.
Lets carve the boy to pieces
And then serve him to the press.
Yes, yes.

They thought he was a rock,
Turned out to be a ragdoll.
When we put him on a pedestal,
We set him up to fall. Now,
hes hanging by a thread,
Were busting at the seams
He got a head full of crazy,
We got a heart full of dreams.

And we talk about love
and its Aw, man. Whatever
Youve heard it before,
Were just preaching to the choir.
Time after time, we fumble and falter.
Swear we can change,
But whos got the power?
And it weighs you down, And it weighs me down.
And it weighs you down, And it weighs me down,
Down to Earth.

Weve got a constitution,
We the people born to sin.
We need a savior to redeem us
from the flesh were living in.
Yeah, everyones a hypocrite,
cant practice what we preach, no.
The professor aint no better
than the ones hes trying to teach.

And we talk about God
and its Aw, man. Whatever
Youve heard it before,
Were just preaching to the choir.
Time after time, we fumble and falter.
Swear we can change,
But whos got the power?
Oh, it weighs you down, Oh, it weighs me down.
Oh, it weighs you down, Oh, it weighs me down,
Down to Earth.

What we do is,
far from what we know we ought to.
Its me, its you.
Yeah, human is human.

Well, the war is never over,
the battles never won, no.
Who could find the light
Under the barrel of a gun?
Its freedom for the wealthy,
Or justice for the poor.
There lies the ammunition
for this politicians war.

And we talk about peace
and its Aw, man. Whatever
Weve heard it before,
Your just preaching to the choir.
Time after time, we fumble and falter.
We swear we can change,
But whos got the power?
And it weighs you down, And it weighs me down.
And it weighs you down, And it weighs me down,
Down to Earth.
Down to Earth.
