Oh put it on, take it off real quick
On the bottom of the pile, I'm feeling sick
It never crossed my mind that my baby lied, no
To keep me in the beggars' guild

So I sleep all day and I dream all night
With the bottle in my hand I take the devil's side
I smile real big just to keep it hid
Oh, the truth about my lack of will

So I run like hell from the city's glow
I lose my name, my past, and forget the folks I used to know
Find home far away from the city gates
And the long reach of the government

Oh, all alone in a cold north sea
In the blue sky above a plane flew over me
The banner it pulled said you are a fool
Did you really think you'd ever win?

I am taking off my dirty skin
There is nothing to refute my sin

I fear no one
I fear no one but you
(Don't care, no, no)
I lie only to tell the truth
(No...)

Oh, the steeple demands of a higher call
Oh, you pawned off your words so the cogs won't stall
I'll burn my clothes and lock up my soul
And pretend that I was never born (Hey, yeah!)

Oh my, oh my, look what you have done
Spilled your head out on the floor like you're the chosen one
I'd give her my heart but she wanted no part
So I sold it to an antique store

So I dug a hole four thousand miles down
To the center of the earth where I would not be found
Memories of the moon saying see you soon
Oh, I was always partial to the sun

I was picked up by two men of the law
They said we're taking you downtown, forget about your car
Hell's no place for a wandering face
Go take it up with Beelzebub

You laugh as you pull out the rug
I was never really much in love

I fear no one
I fear no one but you
(Don't care, no, no)
I lie only to tell the truth
(No...)
