Everybody knows you
They see you everywhere
You have a thousand handles
They’re not afraid to stare

Everybody wonders
Do you live alone?
Do you talk to strangers
On that public telephone?

Doot doot doot...

I don’t steal the mail
Or communicate with Mars
I don’t appear in nightmares
Or collect breath in jars

You’re only as human
As people will let you be

Doot doot doot...

Have you heard the rumours
(Don’t believe everything you hear)
From friends of friends of friends?
(And check the source of course my dear)
He was cleaning up from God knows what
(Please don’t act like it’s so obscene)
Where the river bends
(Man gets dirty, man gets clean)

I’ve never been committed
(So many go undiagnosed)
Or been a wealthy man
(Take a step a back, don’t get too close)
I wouldn’t try to hurt you
(I’ll just act like you don’t exist)
I’m not that kind of man
(As I squeeze the keys inside my fist)
