boulevard of both extremes lyrics – apologetix

i walk a lonely road
i know no one and i am an unknown
i’m samaritan though
got a known disease but i’ve got no home
i’ve got this leprosy
all the folks who are approaching scream
where’s their sympathy?
they run and show me none but i’m not alone
i’m not alone, i’m not alone
i’m not alone, i’m not a…

my fellow homeless ones
they walk beside me
we share those marks that go with skin diseases
there’s nine jewish among us
they don’t mind me
with them i’m not alone

ah…

we’re all from palestine
race divides us but their skin’s like mine
and like frankenstein
ugly, wretched, scarred like al capone
we see jesus christ
let’s walk up to him, he seems all right
yet in bible times
we know it’s not allowed, we must walk alone
but i’m not alone, i’m not alone
i’m not alone, i’m not a…

my fellow homeless ones
who walk beside me
they shout “have mercy on us,
please lord jesus”
then christ said we should turn from there
and find priests
to them i’ve got to go

ah…
i’ve got to go, i’ve got to

our lord just rescued me
from a cruel bizarre awful disease
went to see the priests
and on the road the lord was my doctor

those fellow homeless ones
were healed just like me
i shall embark
to go give thanks to jesus
the nine all wish me luck
and stand behind me
and then i walk alone
