Are you trying to build a ladder to heaven?
Going two ways on a one-way street
Are you trying to get a bad reputation?
Been down so long, you're feeling beat, hey
I don't know what it's like being you
But you don't know a damn thing about me
Mr. Man, I ain't listening no more
You don't want my opinion, sit down and shut the door.

Ever think about those fiery arms of death
Both reaching for the sky until they fell?
You can't deal with loss, I guess
Keep on like this, you're going straight to hell
God only knows what you're thinking
The devil knows what you want
Mr. Man, good luck, I'm on the run
Don't bother to chase me - Canada, here I come!

Oh, oh, you're going down, down, down
Nobody gonna save you, nobody gonna stop you
Oh, oh, they put their trust in you
I was just about to do the same
Till you started playing this freedom game.

What makes you think you know everything?
No mind-reader could work your job
It takes all kinds to make a nation
From the well-dressed gent to the half-dead slob, yeah
Which one are you gonna be?
Just another four-letter word like "free"?
Mr. Man, it's down to you now
Don't know what you're gonna do now
You got the power, you got the right
To speak the truth and fight your own fight
But you better lock your door at night
That's all I'm saying.
