Lyrics
I've just had a dream that I never will forget
And I wish I could erase
I was standing on the street with a whole crowd of people
And no one knew my name
And I was just another face
No one looked at me or touched me
Spoke to or acknowledged me
I had no identity or individuality
No thoughts of my own, no mind or personality
I was just a no one, a total nonentity
I'm just a number waiting to be called
It is time for confessing it all
I'm just another face
Yes, it's time for confessing it all
Been a cheat, been a crook
Never gave I always took
Crushed people to acquire
Anything that I desired
Been deceitful and a liar
Now I'm facing Hell Fire
I can't believe that my time has come
For confessing all the evil
And the wrong that I've done
The reckoning's come
And now I'm just a no one
I confess to the timid and the meek
To the cripples and the beggars
And the tramps in the street
I confess my cruelty, my ego and conceit
I've opened up my body and looked inside
And I'm everything that I once despised
I confess for the thieves
The affected and deranged
I confess for the muggers and incurably insane
I confess to the ugly for being vain
I confess to those I hurt for causing them pain
I'm just a number
Waiting to be called
And it's time for confessing it all
And I'm just another face
And it is time for confessing it all
Yes, it's time for confessing it all
Yes, it's time for confessing it all
