I have always been here
And I'll always be there
I can honestly tell you
That I really don't care
If all the babies are broken
And the old folks are blind
There's a hole in my heart
But I know you don't mind
If I laugh at the cripples
And I cry for the clowns
And I welcome the madness
That I see coming down
And I have no opinions
So I feel no remorse
I can see the Black Knight
Riding up on his horse
And there's fire in his nostrils
And blood in his eyes
And he's looking at you, kid
As he races on by
So watch out for his hooves
They're going to kill you for sure
He's got some kind of sickness
That no man can cure
And his breath it will burn you
And put out your eyes
He'll tear out your tongues
So you can't even cry
That your body is broken
And your spirit is dead
And you hope against hope
That it's a bad dream you had
About a meeting with Elvis
At the back of the store
You're both shoveling plastic ware
Right out of the door
And the men who control you
Keep yelling for more, more, more, more
You pay all your taxes
But you don't know what for
'Cause nothing seems to get better
Things seem to get worse
We're all living in danger
From a politician's curse
All promises have been broken
All lips have been read
Well the mouth has spoken
But nothing's been said
The dream has been shattered
The flags have been burned
You better make up your minds
From whatever you've learned
About your family values
And the way they've been scorned
Some babies have been battered
Way before they've been born
Some call me a liar
Some call me a thief
But the way that I look at things
I can't get no relief
So I went to a meeting
Spoke out of fear
They said Thank you for sharing
Now why are you here?
I said everything's shaking
Including myself
I keep all my feelings
High up on a shelf
And I can't seem to reach them
But I know they were there
I'm trapped in this vacuum
And I'm gasping for air
Some people get better
Some people just fall
Some people rise above it
Or so I've been told
So I started to leave
I was searching for more
They caught a hold of my sleeve
But I slipped through the door
I ran back to the office
With my back to the wall
When I came to my senses
I had no one to call
So I called up the doctor
He told me to lie
He said Get out of this nightmare
Or you surely will die
So I forced myself to wake up
And opened my eyes
But the man in the mirror
Was there in disguise
He was playing his part
Living in a trance
Sentenced to be a witness
'Cause he had no defense
The anesthetic is wearing thin
And you're starting to sweat
And you finally realize
That it ain't over yet
'cause the way you've been feeling
They must have hit a nerve
I know it's not what you want
But it's what you deserve
The operation is over
Listen to me please
I'm begging forgiveness
Down on my knees
Coming back to consciousness
I was out of my head
And the dream is over
I'm back in my bed
I have always been here
And I'll always be there
I can honestly tell you
That I really do care
I gotta tell you the truth
About the sadness I find
I have opened my heart to you
And I hope you don't mind
