Words by Bob Hartman
Music by Pete Orta, Lonnie Chapin, and John Elefante

He's got a straight head
in a world of brain dead
He's got a clean nose
even when the wind blows
He's got a backbone even when he's all alone
Ain't taken no chances following the masses

He's got his mind set
On high with his affections
He's got the jones
He makes no bones

It's a God fixation
A singleness of heart, an undistracted mind
It's a God fixation
Addiction of a different kind

He's got 20/20 vision making a decision
He's so unaffected by what he has rejected

Rooted and grounded
he's standin' up to be counted
And he's already proved
that he will not be moved

He will not bend to
The pressures and persuasions
He knows the lies
He won't compromise

Repeat Chorus

In the heavenlies
In captivity

Repeat Chorus twice
