lyrics

I saw your picture in the Arts and Leisure
And I’ve read about the accolades you’ve received
Me, I’ve been fielding all the angry phone calls
From the people that you want to claim I’ve deceived

Like many millions, I watched your program
I saw my image upon the screen
The way you showed me in your portrayal
That wasn’t me

‘Cause you…
You…
You…
You…
You got me all wrong
You wanna knock me but I won’t stay down very long

I gave you access to the inner circle
To the places that non-adherents never see
You made a promise to be open-minded
In a pitch where it made it hard to disagree

Of all the people you could have profiled
The true believers of every age
Instead, the vengeful and discontented
Got center stage

And you…
You…
You…
You…
You got me all wrong
You wanna knock me but I won’t stay down very long

You only trust in the world of the physical
But I know there’s something beyond the material
A world invisible
More than your lens can see

You put the focus on the cars and houses
And suggest that I’ve now become wealth-obsessed
I won’t deny that I’m well-compensated
But I’m blessed with a gift that very few possess

I’ve heard the voices of those who’ve left us
The souls still yearning to reach someone
I made connections for desperate people
What have you done?

And you…
You…
You got me all wrong
You wanna knock me but I won’t stay down very long
