Lord, I heard a song today 
  It said you’d take all my hurt away 

 

Well then Lord please tell me why 
  Why after seven years I still wish to die 

 

Why can’t anyone accept me for who I am? 
  Just a long haired bum of a fat man 

 

They reject me wherever I go 
  Then they ask me why I feel so low 

 

I don’t think my self-hatred would be 
  If only one, just one would love me 

 

I happen to be stuck in this time and place 
  With forty pounds extra and this ugly face 

 

Why can’t they accept me for who I am? 
  Just a long haired bum of a fat man 

 

They tell me to cut all my hair away 
  Then they make me live on 400 calories a day 

 

Wear dress cloths thy politely implore 
  Or forget you, we don’t want you any more

 

Lord I thank you for accepting who I am 
  Just a long haired bum of a fat man
