From the Album:            Initiation  1975 (A)
  When I was a child
  I thought as a child
  I spoke as a child
  I didn't know better
  But now I'm a man
  I look like a man
  I'm old as a man
  And I should know better
  Got my head in the sky
  And my mind knows what it wants
  But my body just drags me down
  And my world is something you can't see
  But it's still very real to me
  You can find it in the hole where I keep my soul
  There it is - way down inside me
  There's a real man
  Forget about my body and be a real man

  I see with my heart
  I hear with my heart
  I feel with my heart
  Sometimes it works better
  And some so-called friends put me down
  And they pity me for trying
  Bad emotions push me around
  But the vision shines on and on
  It will shine when we all are gone
  And I'd like to add a little sparkle while I'm here
  Light it up - way down inside me
  There's a real man
  Forget about bad feelings and be a real man

  Some men's world is only hate and money
  Afraid of everything and they laugh at nothing
  And they only live to criticize
  You can laugh at me now [ha ha ha]
  But the time comes to everybody
  When you must decide
  When that day finally comes along
  You might wish you'd been a little more strong
  Then you'll wake up in the morning cryin'
   "Oh my God"
  There it is - way down inside me
  It's a real man
  You got to grow up sometime
  Be a real man
  Suffer them slings and arrows
  Be a real man
  Now be a real man
  Don't sell yourself for nothing
  Be a real man
  Don't take no crap from no one
  Be a real man
  Get your trip together
  Be a real man
