"Public Image" as written by Donat Walker James, John Lydon, Keith Levene and John Joseph Wardle....
You never listen to a word I said
You only seen me
For the clothes I wear
Or did the interest go so much deeper
It must have been
The length of my hair

The public image

What you wanted was never made clear
Behind the image was ignorance and fear
You hide behind this public machine
Still follow the same old scheme

Public image

Two sides to every story
Somebody had to stop me
I'm not the same as when I began
I will not be a property

Public image

Two sides to every story
Somebody had to stop me
I'm not the same as when I began
It's not a game of monopoly

Public image

Public image
You got what you wanted
The public image belongs to me
It's my entrance
My own creation
My grand finale
My goodbye

Public image
Public image
Goodbye
