It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To stand this freaking human race

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To face this teaming rat-race

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To deal with the mess we've made

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To stand this freaking, reeking world

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To look this bloody mess in the face

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To look myself in the god-awfull face

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
