When the man spoke, the people listened
And they followed him to death
I was the closest to him
And this I must confess
That I never felt I had the chance to say
All the things that were in this heart of mine
They say you learn from your big mistakes
And I think its just about time that I...
Say it to you, say it to me
Say it to all of us
In perfect clarity (to all our families)
I'm so sick of people talkin' out of their ass
About the way things are today
They bitch and moan every time you see them
In their own peculiar ways
They're lunchin', they're munchin',
And then they start punchin'
'Cause they just can't get it straight.
What's the use in beating around the bush
Unless you're getting a little
I'm sick of living this life in vain
Black or white, love or spite
Just give me the facts on what you're feeling
I try to be patient but you're killing me...
