Come now and listen babe 
I gotta reason why I behave 
Like a child with a light in eyes 
Running naked on a cold winter night 
I am like a pigeon that is spreading 
It's wings to fly away to better things 
Like a hammer that has made 
A dent in every little single cent you've spent 

Said oh God you've got to help me a little bit 
You've got to have a relief file for me 
Now I know I'm always right, that's a 
Thought that never even crossed my mind 
Don't touch me there, I've gotta be pure 
So smack that hand, and read this verse 
So I wrecked your life, what the heck 
My new found faith will pay by check 
This life's took a toll on my soul 

So this is me and that's my song 
And I guess that you can see that we don't get along 
I've shut the doors on what we had 
So now she can sleep with her dear ol' dad 
My eyes are dry and my hands are clean 
And I can't believe all the things I've seen 
Oh my God!
