michael knows how it is
he's got new hips and two cracked teeth
he's been to war and raised a kid
he wrangles props in the movie biz
he likes to joke got a big red face and a goofy voice
he's got a goofy voice.
he's got a mind for the right
hears their cries and lives their fight
lit a man on fire once
who gave his brother shit for living on his block.
michael knows his heritage
he descended from the thirteenth tribe of israel
he don't get mad no he don't get even
he'll opt instead to make you wake up screaming.
he talked to god in desert storm
saw broken men lose to the VA hospitals
spent a year drunk then got back on his feet
now michael says what he thinks and knows what he means.
