THE SURFACE (JO JO)

Lord give me religion
Something to believe
Something that consoles me
Puts my mind at ease
I look out on the people
Everyone’s in pain
It don’t matter who you talk to
It’s all the same

Jo Jo took a gun
Killed everyone in sight
Turned it on himself
His kids and his wife
When they asked the neighbors
Explain it if you can
Jo Jo was a quiet family man

It’s all on the surface
It’s a cryin’ shame
Laughin’, grinnin’, smilin’
To hide the pain

Big fine fancy cars
A house with big, tall trees
Is that the solution for everybody
For you and for me
I don’t really think so
Like a sad, sad, refrain
Deep inside, still the pain

It’s all on the surface
It’s a cryin’ shame
Laughin, grinnin’, smilin’ To hide the pain
A hundred different channels
But nothin’ to see
Heaven up above
Help us please
