Old James Dean Monroe 
Hands out flowers at the Shop N Go 
Hopes for money but all he gets is fear 
And the wind blows up his coat 

And this he scribbles on a perfume note 
"If I'm not here  then you're not here" 
And he says  
"Call me Miscreation  
I'm a walking celebration" 

[Chorus] 
And it's hard to make a stand 
And it's hard to make a stand 
It's hard to make a stand 
It's hard to make s stand 

My friend, o lawdy, 
Went to take care of her body, 
And she got shot down in the road 
She looked up before she went, 

Said, "This isn't really what I meant" 
And the Daily News said, "Two with one stone" 
And I say, 
"Hey there, Miscreation, 
Bring a flower, time is wasting" 

[Chorus] 

Yes it is 

We got loud guitars and big suspicions, 
Great big guns and small ambitions, 
And we still argue over who is God 
And I say, 

"Hey there, Miscreation, 
Bring a flower, time is wasting" 
I say, 
"Hey there, Miscreation, 
We all need a revelation" 

[Chorus]
