oh my baby
yes it's true
i've been a lonely man for you
little baby it's no lie
without you i'd surely die
they don't know but i can see
they try to take you away from me
but they don't know what i'd do
i've been a lonely man for you

blindfolds that they put on me
make them think that i can't see
all the tricks they try to do
just to keep me away from you
let them let them think they can
'cause i'm just a little man
but they don't know what i'd do
i've been a lonely man for you

what can i say
if you go away?
and some wish
that you would
but they don't do me no good
what can i do
baby without you?
bullet, bomb
gun or knife
to keep you in my life

good lord, it's a dreadful sin
kind of world i'm living in
papers don't tell me no news
make the choices i should choose
first they say that we are free
self-contained in apathy
good lord is technology
tries to take you away from me

what could i do
baby without you?
bullet, bomb
gun or knife
just to keep you in my life
what could i say
with you gone away?
and some wish
that you would
but they don't do me no good

oh baby
lordy knows that yes it's true
i've been a lonely man for you
good lord knows that yes it's true
i've been a lonely man for you
i've been a lonely
i've been a lonely
i've been a lonely man for you
so lonely
so lonely
i've been so lonely
i've been a lonely man for you
i've been a lonely
man for you

    General CommentVic says this one is about public cameras in NYC, and not about a lover. I guess he's lonely for his freedom and ready to do anything to get it back. Also, not sure what it means, but the backwards message sounds like "Joke for schoolboy, dead for dropout". Maybe a reference to the politician who put the cameras up? Not sure.
