My mind is dull and faded
From these years of buy and sell
My eyes have seen the glory
Of this hollow, modern shell

And sex is a grand production
But I'm bored with that as well
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
Lord save me from myself

The electric sun keeps shining
Ripen daughters of the chrome
Yea, this world is where I breathe
Let it never be called home

Where the vultures make the money
Is where our bodies fell
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
Lord save me from myself

The vultures make the money
Yea, I'm bored with that as well
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
Lord save me from myself

    My InterpretationThis song is about materialism.
    It's not against capitalism(which is a beautiful thing), but against the constant drive to get more. The cutthroats in big business who do whatever it takes to get more money. Those whose life is driven by obtaining more and more. The obsession with sex, shiny new toys, big city. Foreman's obviously bored with all this because it's hollow and temporal. Yet Foreman knows that he to falls prey to materialism, so he's pleading with God to save him from himself and focus his eyes on eternity rather than the temporal earth which should never be our home.
