Human

© 2003 Jackie Tice

You are nothing more than human
Far as I can see
Nothing more than human
With human frailty

You ask for protection
Then you stand in the line of fire
Say youíve found direction
But youíre circuitryís miswired
When the mirror is too clean
And you self-esteem is lean
Canít you see youíre asking too much of yourself

You are nothing more than human
Far as I can see
Nothing more than human
With human frailty

All those phones that are ringing
Are just callbacks from the past
Static lines bringing guilty voices
Pushing you to fast
Your belly is on fire
Itís fueling your desire
To be more than you ever could aspire

You are nothing more than human
Far as I can see
Nothing more than human
With human frailty

Who you are
Is not everything youíll be
Youíve come so far
Why donít you see yourself as real
See yourself as real

When you count up the losses
Youíre just pointing to the pain
Even God has a cost
If you look closely at the gain

There is nothing left to hide
When you pass a judgement by
Youíll realize itís all your own design

You are nothing more than human
Far as I can see
Nothing more than human
With human frailty
