The streets are lined with camera crews Everywhere he goes is news Today is different Today is not the same Today I make the action Take snapshot into the light, snapshot into the light I'm shooting into the light
Four miles down the cavalcade moves on Driving into the sun If I worked it out right They won't see me or the gun
Two miles to go, they're clearing the road The cheering has really begun I've got my radio I can hear what's going on
I've been waiting for this I have been waiting for this All you people in TV land I will wake up your empty shells Peak-time viewing blown in a flash As I burn into your memory cells 'cause I'm alive
They're coming 'round the corner with the bikers at the front I'm wiping the sweat from my eyes It's a matter of time It's a matter of will And the governor's car is not far behind He's not the one I've got in mind 'cause there he is-the man of the hour, standing in the limousine "I don't really hate you I don't care what you do We were made for each other Me and you I want to be somebody You were like that too If you don't get given you learn to take And I will take you."
Holding my breath Release the catch And I let the bullet fly
All turned quiet I have been here before Lonely boy hiding behind the front door Friends have all gone home There's my toy gun on the floor Come back Mum and Dad You're growing apart You know that I'm growing up sad I need some attention I shoot into the light
