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

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 deal with the games we've played

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To forgive --
The fighting and the killing
The lying and denying
The ignorance and the cruelty
The pettiness and the vanity
The selfishness and the greed
The seediness and deceit

It takes a sh*t-load of compassion
To walk down this god-damned street

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
