"The Man" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Look in the mirror
I am the man
Mrs. Miller says
I am the man
Ask the birds singin'
I am the man
Everyone is a fan

A little walk through the neighborhood
People nod 'cause it's understood
Mr. Henry comes out to stand
A wave and shout-out
To the man

Ask the birds singin'
I am the man
By popular demand

The little skinhead with the tattooed face
Shows me a moment of style and grace
The old hippie with the tie-dye headband
Flashes a peace sign to the man

Ask the birds singin'
I am the man
Well, I do what I can

The angry redneck in his pickup truck
Tips his hat and gives the thumbs-up
The New Age guy with the yoga mat
Blesses me with a pat on the back
The long haired indie rock kid in a band
Looks through his hair and shakes my hand
The old homeless guy who smells like pee
Stops talking nonsense and says "Morning, E"

Ask the birds singin'
I am the man
It's all part of the plan

The thug rapper with the gold and chains
Puts in his grill and says "Good day"
The politician going door to door
Says "No vote means more to me than yours"

Ask the birds singin'
I am the man
You know I'd win if I ran

    General Commentthis is a response to "that look you give that guy" on the 1st album of the trilogy, hombre lobo. in that e wishes that he was "that guy" and wishes the lady would look at him with love etc. in "the man" it is the realisation and joy that he's now that person he's been longing to be.....
