Hypocrite reader,
My double, my brother
Your daddy really took it out of you
But did he speak it in tongues?
But did he speak it in tongues?

Sneaking out the windows now
You've got the spirit now

Hypocrite reader,
My double, my brother
Where did we lose our way?
It's like we're speaking in tongues
It's like we're speaking in tongues

Sneaking out the windows now

You've got the spirit now
You've got the spirit now

Hypocrite reader,
My double, my brother
Now I can't understand a word
Now you're speaking in tongues 
(Speaking in tongues)
Now you're speaking in tongues 
(Speaking in tongues)
Now you're speaking in tongues 
(Speaking in tongues)
Now you're speaking in tongues 
(Speaking in tongues)

Come out of your head
And into my world now
Come out of your head
And into my world, my world, my world now

(Speaking in tongues)
