Wrong State of Mind

I was dreaming that I was caught up in the middle of a parade

But I wasn't paying attention to the statement being made

And when I looked up at a banner and saw just what it said

Then I wished that I was somewhere else instead

Because the message on the banner was for white supremacy

And no matter how hard I tried it didn't make any sense to me

So I studied the people around me trying to think of what to say

But the only thing I could think of was to laugh and walk away



I was dreaming that I was talking to a man about his faith

And I was far away from home in some kind of exotical place

The situation was such that when I looked at my surrounding

I got nervous and my heart just started pounding

I realized that I was the only man that was Caucasian

All the people around me looked like oriental Asian

I was a legal alien in a difficult situation

But I could relate to the state I was in when I thought about discrimination



Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Or was I in the wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind



I was dreaming that I was at home and when I took a look around

It was as if the entire population had suddenly gone underground

I was standing all by myself and there was no one to be found

The only thing worse than a terrible noise is not even hearing a sound

There wasn't a trace of a human face as far as my eyes could see

I started to feel kind of lonely and I wanted some company

I had to make do with myself and the thought didn't appeal to me

'Cause the only thing worse than to many people is feeling completely lonely



Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Or was I in the wrong state of mind



Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Or was I in the wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind



Anybody could be related with a monkey in a tree

Or an ancient tribe from Africa but that doesn't bother me

I've probably got lots of relatives that are Jews and nobody knows

Maybe that's the reason for the size of my big and beautiful nose

My family tree is a mystery that comes from all over the place

So tell me the logical definition of a perfect race

Some people are dressed in a darker tan and some have a lighter shade

And I can assure you nobody's sure exactly where they were made

Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Or was I in the wrong state of mind



Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Or was I in the wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind

Wrong place, wrong time or wrong state of mind
