(There's no commiseration
For the disreputable)


In the middle of a firefight
In the underground of this war
It's the call to leave this all behind
But they're never gonna catch me
Like they're stumbling through a cloud of smoke
Is this what they warned about?
And my life will never be the same on my mother's eyes
Say a prayer, say a prayer


Now! But I can't
And I don't know
How I'm just one person with all this culpability
Well, I can't
But can I -?!
Too much, too late, and I swear I just can't take this
Pain in my heart and my dying wish
Comes to my lips now -


Well, it rains and it pours when you're out on your own
And through the lightning and thunder like a traitor I go
Can I forget my own name and still save this false face?
Questions and answers and they're all of the unknown


Indictments, imputations
And they're all against me
And we've lived and they've died
And I've lied so many times
Oh, so many times!
I miss them now!
They were so much easier to spin and to tell
And it had all turned out well
Before I had met you
I wish I'd never met you!
But I don't and I can't
Obliterate the times that we shared
But I really must go
And you really mustn't know
And I'm, I'm
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
Just one more lie!
Just one more time!


Now! Well, I can
And I don't know
How I'm just one person with all the culpability
Well, I can
Well, I did -!
Too much, too late, and I swear I just can't take this
Pain in my heart and my dying wish
Is on my lips again -


From emigrant to emissary and everything in between
And my cellmate's a killer and the stains and the smells all dosed in blood
And I tried and I tried and I descried the past that we all loathe
And I don't need their acceptance, but they're not adjuring, they're demanding
And antipathy runs high and it's so cold and so dark, so very dark
Through the storm again -
I miss you now!
Will they give me the scythe or a hang or their bloody guillotine machine
Oh, here everyone's known all the trouble I've seen!


Now! And I did
And I don't know
How I'm just one person with all this culpability
Well, I did
All these sins -!
Too much, too late, and I swear I just can't take this
Pain in my heart and my dying wish
Falls from my lips no more -


Sanity has long gone and I'm abashed of myself
And of what I have been, and of who I am now, and am I losing myself?
Well, I'm losing myself!
And what would I have said is I'd seen you again
I stare through these bars and through the storm again and will it ever end?
It will never end!
I stare unseeing through these bars to the end, to the end -
What they want to do...
And I can't
And no, I can't go on
I can't go on -
And I don't
And no, I don't remember
I cannot remember -
You!


(Does anyone have the keys to these cells?
Let me outta here!
Somebody just get me outta here!
Put your glasses up!
We're gonna light this revolution on fire!
On fire!)


This
Life
Is
But
A
Lie!
Through and through
And well, I, I won't go down by myself
I won't even be myself -


Now!
Now, now, now
(Well, I can't explain)
Now, now, now
(I don't remember)
Now, now, now -


Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
