Set me aside, you'll find
People are the same everywhere
Hoist me from the herd and
People are the same everywhere

Then our creator had to stumble and stall
And our creator had to make
The biggest mistake of all
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Set me aside, and find
People are the same everywhere
Stoode me from the group and
Groups are the same everywhere

Then our creator had to
Stumble and stall and our creator
Had to make the biggest mistake of all
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah
It's a shame, it's a shame but
People are the same everywhere
And land of the free and the home of the brave
Exists nowhere.

Here in our loveless nation
We're all in a rush to find a lovers touch
And when it's found you wonder
Why it meant so much
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah
It's a shame, it's a shame
That people are the same
It's a shame, it's a shame but
People are the same

    Not really, that's just simplistic... Morrissey is deeper than that... We're all in a rush to comment or to go to the next job or lover, commercialism wars etc, and the line about the creator is humorous but poignant. This is all about appreciating the important things in life and not going about being shallow, ignorant, taking things for granted and voting for jerks who keep the predatory status quo going. It's shame, but inside this bleak honest lyric there's a feeling of hope in it too.
