Song Meaning
Verse 1
Lay me down
There's a lot of us been pushed around
Red or yellow, black or white and brown
With a tear of their own
Oh, can't you see
While you're picking on society
That believes on your family tree
Calling you to come home
Verse 2
You're the keeper of the castle
So be a father to your children
A provider of all their daily needs
Like a sovereign lord protector
Be their best friend, please direct them
And they'll do well to follow where you lead
Verse 3
Oh, in your head
You don't believe what the good book says
You're gonna strike out [?] instead
Cause the world's been unkind
But through thick and thin
Whatever shape your heart is in
You only have one next of kin
Better keep 'em in mind
Verse 4
You're the keeper of the castle
So be a good man to your lady
The creator of the sunshine in her day
In the garden that you seeded
Be a friend when a friend is needed
You won't have to look the other way
Verse 5
Lay me down
There's a lot of us been pushed around
Red or yellow, black or white and brown
With a tear of their own
Oh, can't you see
While you're picking on society
That believes your family tree
A beggin' you to come on home
Verse 6
Lay me down
There's a lot of us been pushed around
Red or yellow, black or white and brown
With a tear of their own
In your head
You don't believe what the good book says
