Table Of Friendship And Love

"Table of Friendship & Love"

I met this teenage heavy metal freak
He blew my mind away
When I found out what he did in his school one day
He said I've never gotten into all these "clique-y" groups at school

We've got jocks and heads and nerds and freaks
And every social class and race
Breaking bread together -- and though we're not allowed to pray
When the walls come down like that--
How can God be far away ...from a
