I am the best man, sits out of the rest of them
Are you all alone, are you all alone. (x3)
You're selling your soul (x3)
Have it got it all? With your eyes closed, (x4)
Your selling yer soul. have you got it all?

I am the best man, sits out of the rest of them
Are you all alone, are you all alone.

You're selling yer soul (x3)
Have it got it all? With yer eyes closed, (x4)
Your selling yer soul.
Have you got it all?

I am message.

    General Commentsome lyric sites say that "I am the best man, sits out of the rest of them" is actually "I am the best message out of the rest of them" it sounds like that a bit too. Kinda works with the whole "i am a message" thing but i dunno. Anyone else know for sure?

    General CommentI'm pretty certain it's "I am the best message..."

    I think in the chorus Roddy actually alternates between singing "You're selling your soul" and "Your selling us all"

    Great song anyway.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that these lyrics are wrong, despite what it may say on other websites, the lyrics are "I am the best message out of the rest of them". Also, the line "you're ice cold, with you're eyes closed" seems to have been just shortened here to "with your eyes closed", which, on it's own, doesn't actually make any sense
