shield your eyes for the lies are crumblin' all-a the wise men sit round bumblin' the professor has peeled back the veneer the preacher man says the end is near ain't it such a shame, you can scream but nobody will hear ain't it such a cryin' shame? cover your ears for the fear, you shouldn't be here everybody knows the show will bring you to tears the sycophantic liars run amok the crooks are in the back of the truck ain't it such a shame, it's the same thing year after year ain't it such a cryin' shame? one by one, we come undone the battle is over, but the war is never won ash to ash and dust to dust on every day must set a tired sun ain't it such a cryin' shame?

forget your friends and enemies all that matters now is me i can give you what you want i can give you what you need you got it, you got it figured out in your mind but the rain is fallin' down and that mask is meltin' like fresh paint on a hot day the steam is risin' up and i can see the sweat beads drippin' down your face lord, set me free god, love and greed what has been will be again there's nothin' new under the sun sure as hell i'll be your friend but of these you must keep only one i got it, i got it figured out in my mind lord, set me free god, love and greed i can do without all this talk about reignin' in the new age who cares what the people say? all the land is hollow, close your eyes and follow you don't have a better way so get down on your knees and pray

she finds a seat, takes a drag on a cigarette, leans back on the wall she does her best to keep it hidden, not to be so conspicuous and all he looks around for a ring or a man, sees neither and makes his move before he can speak, she puts her number in his hand and says, baby, you know what to do low lights goin' down nobody's around she went until the risin' of the sun and that was how his lonely heart was won she wags her tail, slithers like a snail over to the kitchen the next day he's sittin' high and mighty, lookin' at his aphrodite, searchin' for the words to say but a pain strikes his chest as he looks to the west while the words, they fade away the mighty king is stricken by a perilous condition on a sunny summer day low lights goin' down nobody's around she went until the risin' of the sun and that was how his lonely heart was won do it to me baby one more time, mama, do it one more time give it to me baby one more time, mama, do it one more time do it to me baby one more time, mama, do it one more time low lights goin' down nobody's around she went until the risin' of the sun and that was how his lonely heart was won

pay my tab and tip my hat to the barkeep take my leave as i walk on into the night look for the stars, but the stars don't look for me try to find the end of the road, but no end is in sight i don't wanna live, but i won't let myself die i just wanna smile, but sometime all i can do is cry meet me in the middle of nowhere, i'll be smokin' a cigarette dreamin' of the days i never got to live yet gimme three wishes, i wouldn't know what to do gimme three kisses, i'd give 'em right back to you gimme one reason why i can't find somethin' new it couldn't be i'm trapped upon this plane with nothin' left to do i don't wanna breathe, but i just can't help myself i wanna leave, but i sit still as a shelf all i need's somebody to hold me, but i just want to be alone waitin' for the end to be a friend and take me home maybe it's lookin' for me as i walk through the city maybe it wants me, too

sometimes i feel like a motherless child sometimes i feel like a motherless child sometimes i feel like a motherless child and i'm a long, long way from home true believer, a long way from home sometimes i feel like i'm already gone sometimes i feel like i'm already gone sometimes i feel like i'm already gone way up in the heavenly land true believer, a long way from home sometimes i feel like a motherless child, lord sometimes i feel like a motherless child sometimes i feel like a motherless child and i'm a long, long way from home and i'm a long, long way from home i'm a long, long way from home
