Can you tell me, tell me, friend, just exactly where I've been?
You seem really sure 'bout something I don't know,
Your wasted words already been heard, are you really God, yes or no?
Well, all day and half the night you're walkin' round lookin' such a fright.
Time's gone, looks like Rome is 'bout to fall,
Your wasted words so absurd, are you really Satan, yes or no?
Well, I ain't no saint and you sure as hell ain't no savior,
That was then, this is now, don't ask me to be Mister Clean,
Ring my phone 'bout ten more times, we will see,
Your wasted words will never be heard, go on home baby and watch it on TV.
Weekday soap-box specialty, you know what I'm talkin' 'bout now,
