10,000 Maniacs - I'm Not the Man versuri lyrics


I'm Not the Man

It crawls on his back, won't ever let him be
Stares at the walls until the cinder blocks can breathe
His eyes have gone away, escaping over time
He rules a crowded nation inside his mind

He knows that night like his hand
He knows every move he made
Late shift, the bell that rang
A time card won't fade

10:05 his truck pulled home
10:05 he climbed the stairs
About the time he was accused of being there

But I'm not the man
He goes free as I wait on the row
For the man to test the rope
He'll slip around my throat
And silence me...

On the day he was tried, no witness testified
Nothing but evidence, not hard to falsify
His own confession was a prosecutor's prize
Made up of fear, of rage and of outright lies

But I'm not the man
He goes free as the candle vigil glows
As they burn my clothes
As the crowd cries, 'Hang him slow!'
And I feel my blood go cold
He goes free...

Call out the KKK, they're wild after me
And with that frenzied look of half-demented zeal
They'd love to serve me up my final meal

Who'll read my final rite and hear my last appeal?
Who struck this devil's deal?

Somebody Else



I don't know you, it was nice to for a while
I'm wondering if you're still thinking 'bout me
But I don't know that, so I fill blanks with my own pride
I tell myself you're miserable without me
 
I'm so at a loss
Still confused, waiting you out, waiting you out, ah
You're so far gone
Far removed and sleepin' sound, you're sleepin' sound
 
There's no grey this time, it's black and white
I'm by myself, you're somebody else
No between the lines, it's black and white
I'm by myself, and you're somebody else
 
Somebody, somebody else, somebody еlse
Somebody, somebody еlse, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
 
Thought it was until we're seventy
Now you're a ghost in front of me
Like some kind of black magic
You tricked me good, do you miss me just
A little bit, didn't it matter? No, no
 
But I'm so at a loss
Still confused, waiting you out, waiting you out, ah
You're so far gone
Far removed and sleepin' sound, you're sleepin' sound
 
There's no grey this time, it's black and white
I'm by myself, you're somebody else
No between the lines, it's black and white
I'm by myself, and you're somebody else
 
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
 
Something's just not right
You're living a new life
You're not yourself, not yourself
You're gone but it's alright
I'm gonna be loved by
Somebody else, somebody else
 
There's no grey this time, it's black and white
I'm by myself, you're somebody else
No between the lines, it's black and white
I'm by myself, and you're somebody else
 
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else
Somebody, somebody else, somebody else

Drama Queen



They tell us love done the right way is drainin'
Kissin' and arguin' and cryin' when it's rainin'
In that case, you and I got it made
Always on the ropes, we need a standin' ovation
 
I'm watchin' the same show
I know the endin' and I don't get it
Always on my toes
It's not romantic, it's problematic
 
You're not in love with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama, yeah
You're not in love with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama
I need a knight in shining armor
Not a drama queen, no
You're not in love (In love) with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama, drama
 
I'm not evеn yours anymore
But I deservе an award for gettin' over you, call the Academy
You come around, you go away
Is this a game of how long you can stay mad at me?
Oh, here we go
 
I'm watchin' the same show
I know the endin' and I don't get it (Get it, oh)
Always on my toes
It's not romantic, it's just dramatic
 
You're not in love with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama, yeah
You're not in love (Oh, no) with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama
I need a knight in shining armor
Not a drama queen, no
You're not in love (In love) with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama, drama
 
Da-da-da-dum-dum
In love, in love, in love with the drama
 
I need a knight in shining armor
Not a drama queen
I need a knight in shining armor
You're a drama queen
 
You're not in love with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama, yeah
You're not in love (Oh, no) with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama
I need a knight in shining armor
Not a drama queen, no
You're not in love (In love) with me anymore, oh
You're just in love with the drama, drama

Clockwork



Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ah
 
Am I a fire or the lighter, am I full of it?
Is it me or is it all of them?
I'm like my father, I am stubborn, I'm my mother's kid
I'll guilt myself into pain until there's nothin' left (Nothin' left)
 
The air's gettin' grey now
I see it on the way down
Yeah, yeah
It's pickin' up the pace now
It's quicker on the way down, down, down
 
It's like clockwork
Wheels turn, heals, hurts
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's like clockwork, bad, worse
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops
Clockwork, wheels turn, heals, hurts
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's like clockwork, bad, worse
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops
[Verse 2]
Can't run from what I'm made of, but why can't I
Identify with parts that I'm supposed to recognize?
I got a tight grip on the lesson, this time I won't let it go
Until I let it go, there it goes
 
Air's gettin' grey now
I see it on the way down
Aw, yeah
It's pickin' up the pace now
It's quicker on the way down, ooh
 
It's like clockwork
Wheels turn, heals, hurts
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's like clockwork, bad, worse
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops
Clockwork, wheels turn, heals, hurts
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's like clockwork, bad, worse
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops
 
Woah, ah
Oh
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops
Oh-ah
Oh-oh
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops
 
It's like clockwork
Wheels turn, heals, hurts
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's like clockwork, bad, worse
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops
Clockwork, wheels turn, heals, hurts
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's like clockwork, bad, worse
Tired of sittin', livin' with it 'til it drops

Best Days



So much harder to be honest
With yourself at twenty-something
Wish I knew what I'm becoming
And felt the ground while I was on it
 
Hoping, waiting on a moment
Not knowing if it's coming or it's going, mhm
 
What if my best days are the days I've left behind?
And what if the rest stays the same for all my life?
I'm running with my eyes closed, so it goes
You live and then you die
But the hardest pill to swallow is the meantime
Are the best days just the ones that we survive?
 
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh (Ah, ah)
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
 
If I had known to feel thе fire (Fire)
I would've thrown my arms up highеr (Higher)
Would've held on a little tighter
'Cause you don't know a thing you miss 'til it's behind you, mhm
 
What if my best days are the days I've left behind?
And what if the rest stays the same for all my life?
I'm running with my eyes closed, so it goes
You live and then you die
But the hardest pill to swallow is the meantime
Are the best days just the ones that we survive?
 
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh (Ah, ah)
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
 
What if my best days are the days I've left behind?
And what if the rest stays the same for all my life?
 
What if the best days are the days I've left behind?
And what if the rest stays the same for all my life?
 
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh (Ah, ah)
Yeah, yeah, ooh
