All the ghost of the grandmothers
have been haunting me in my living room
and I am Pagan in my pondering
wondering where it is I will go, if I don't go here

and the streets are full of beggars
bragging threats of misdemeanours
and I am shirtless in my offering
to be more than what you want from me

say it ain't so, say it ain't so
say it ain't, say it ain't so

all the creatures in their masks and capes
are growing restless under costume makeup
and I am wise to what we're doing here
but I'm a fool standing naked and dressed as myself

I will keep my eyes shut, I will, I will
I will build a time machine, traveling back to kings and queens
changing all the course of history
so these things I've done can't make a fool out of me

well the children at the swimming pool
offer their bare skin to the afternoon
and in the courtyard birds are carolling
in the fountains that man made for them

say it ain't so, say it ain't so
say it ain't, say it ain't so

I am cursed and insignificant thinking all the world revolves around me
