    First, the bad news...
    Face the music
    Mind over matter
    In other words...
    My imagination run amuck
    Give and take with inspiration, information, innovation, impossible situation?
    Worsening aggravation
    Change, Every change, every step, every moment defined
    As a man... as a man... as a man thinks

    Shell game in a strait jacket
    12 gauge
    In a shotgun racket
    Shinbone, shindig, shimmy for the Shinto
    Got to do this all alone
    Wait
    Better slow it down and think about it

    Embracing this moment
    Enslave or free my soul
    Just to play the game
    With no guarantee
    Is what I'll do for now
    My life's a requiem playing
    Out of key with no 'absolutes' at all
    Who promised tomorrow?
    Tomorrow may not even be here

    How long am I blameless
    'Undecided' in a frantic world?
    My velocity screaming fast
    From this truth I fear
    Where did I hear:
    'As a man thinks
    So is he'?
    But this man thinks
    'Till his moment's gone'

    Scapegoat to the end, dig it?
    Whiz-bang
    In a whirlwind minute
    Voodoo - take a turn
    Why not
    Nuke my head - feel it burn?
    Wind up where you were
    If you think about it
    Shell game in a strait jacket
    12 gauge
    In a shotgun racket
    Shinbone, shindig, shimmy for the Shinto
    Got to do this all alone
    Wait
    Better slow it down and think about it
    Better slow it down
    Take a moment right now
    Let a man think
    As a man thinks
    What a man thinks...

    (Hey there Budapest)
    (What about... let's just give it a rest)

    Scapegoat to the end, dig it?
    Whiz-bang
    In a whirlwind minute
    Voodoo - take a turn
    Why not
    Nuke my head - feel it burn?
    Wind up where you were
    If you think about it
    Shell game in a strait jacket
    12 gauge
    In a shotgun racket
    Shinbone, shindig, shimmy for the Shinto
    Got to do this all alone
    Wait
    Better slow it down and think about it
    Better slow it down
    Take a moment right now
    Let a man think
    As a man thinks
    What a man thinks...

    Bottom line?
    Get it in
    Get it off
    Get it out
    Get away
    Get a buck
    Get a clue
    Now he just wants more

    And he feels it
    Now...
    No more indecisions here
    No more time to figure things out
    No more lies
    No mortal sin
    He'll pay up square
    But he won't get in
    Too many opportunities
    Too many reasons
    Too many travesties
    Now for the good news
    It's gonna get...
    Gonna get wild
    When you wake up and realize
    You've still got it all

    (Hey there Budapest)
    (How about next time we do our damn best?)
