Well, you heard about the great pretender?
I went to see him and he's not the same
Down by the club on the parking lot cinders
I was to meet him and play his game
Yonder stands the sinner
He calls my name without a sound

I saw his face in the attic window
Yellin' down through the broken pane
Sinner man, what you gotta run for?
Church bells rang when he said that name
Yonder stands the sinner
He calls my name without a sound

Well, I was about as scared as I could be
I went and hid behind the nearest tree
I peeked out from behind the branches
Sinner
Yonder stands the sinner
He calls my name without a sound
To get down

Guess you heard about the great pretender?
I went to see him and he's not the same
I guess you heard about the great pretender?
I went to see him and he's not the same

    General Commenthe calls my name without a SOUND!

    This song is ballin in the mix... I found Time Fades away on Vinyl at Half Price Books last month and in pretty good condition (only "Journey Through the Past" has a distinct popping sound throughout).
