Hello?!?
C'mon, I know you're there
Yeah, I have arrived with a message from someone you've wanted to hear from that may get you running scared.
Let's go!
It's time to show your wares
Yeah, I've got what you want, I haven't much time
Hey, I'm only the messenger, be sure you've tipped me fair


The roll of even tide
May balance either side
And so I know I'm right
To say you're out of time


That's right
I've seen this once before
On some tv show
Only difference is they broke down the door
Let's go!
It's time to show your wares
Yeah, I've got what you want, I'll say it again, hey, I'm only the messenger working for my fair share


If I could, yeah, if I could
Lend you a secret to clean out your closet
and if I could -- you know I want to
Buy you a ticket to nowhere but safety
But as things are, I have no more secrets I'm only the messenger


Goodbye!
And thanks for all your help
They'll be by in the morning to gather your things
If you're gone they will find you so get on your knees
Just to pray you remember one moment of ease
Sorry, I'm just the messenger and now it's my time to leave
Goodbye!

    General CommentKasson Crooker said that this song is about a hitman, which actually makes a lot of sense. I get the impression that the hitman does have compassion for his targets, but in the end he has a "just pays the bills" philosophy about his job.
