Hard to be Human Songtext

Jesus, I wonder about you
What can you be thinking sometimes
Trying to show us our freedom
When all that we want's a free ride
Lord, don't it make you feel helpless
I'm sure that sometimes you get mad
Knowing we ain't all you hoped for
Knowing we're all that you have

God, but it's hard to be human
And know that I really am free
Oh, I know I will get what I want, Lord
I just hope that I want what I need

Your father was smarter than you are
He never gave us a chance
To undo the things that he worked for
He held the reins tight in his hands
A tower of smoke in the morning
A pillar of fire every night
He kept a close watch on his children
He made sure that we got it right

God, but it's hard to be human
And know that I really am free
Oh, I know I will get what I want, Lord
I just hope that I want what I need

Now I have these impossible problems
And I'm wondering what I should do
I know you ain't gonna help me
Still I can't help loving you
Somehow I know that you love me
And somehow that's always enough
So once more I'll shoulder my freedom
And hope that I don't screw it up

God, but it's hard to be human
And know that I really am free
Oh, I know I will get what I want, Lord
I just hope that I want what I need
