He was unwise
Another soldier in the army of the blind
Another goddamn fool
Uprooted from the garden of his youth
Just like me
He was tired of being told that he was free
And just like you
He couldn't wait to reach the top to find the view
But it's a wicked fall

Gonna make you sorry you were born at all
When you lose your mind
Nobody's wondering why
'Cause just like me
The sun just burns you down until you sleep
And just like you
I can't wait to turn into something that's new

So you be as mad as you wanna be
As long as your feet are on the ground
'Cause when you finally learn to live in peace
Here comes the man to shoot you down
Here comes the man to shoot you down
Here comes the man...

He's gonna make you cry
He's gonna make you sorry that you ever tried to love at all
To live an honest life
'Cause just like me
You were tired of being told that you were free
And just like you
I can't wait to reach the top to see the view

And just like me
Time just burns you down until you sleep
And just like you
I can't wait to turn into something that's new

So you be as mad as you wanna be
As long as your feet on the ground
'Cause when you finally learn to live in peace
Here comes the man to shoot you down
Here comes the man to shoot you down
Here comes the man...
