In and out of shady places
Walking on cold corners of the maze
(Of the maze)
Following the trace you leave unwittingly
I wanna be no saboteur
Oh no, me no saboteur

Painted ducks across your landscape
Happy in your domesticity
(It don't come free)
Misfortune, like a sparrow hawk, hangs over you
Wanna be no saboteur
No, no, me no saboteur

Deepest regrets I humbly offer you
As I cut into your life
With clean precision, all is simplified
Pass the hat and pass the knife

By now you must be worried, wondering
Who is me and what lies behind my art
(Behind my art)
I'm only removing broken sea shells from the beach
Oh no, me no saboteur

There's at least one of me inside your ranks
In your factory or school
I anticipate a cleansing opportunity
To take the horns by the bull

History forever writing
Pages to be cut or painted gray
(Gray)
Or celebrated like Jesus in his
Temple rage as he chased the money men away

I wanna be no saboteur
I wanna be no saboteur
I wanna be no saboteur
I wanna be no saboteur
You wanna be my saboteur
