    False Prophet

    [Verse 1]
    Another day that don't end
    Another ship goin' out
    Another day of anger, bitterness, and doubt
    I know how it happened
    I saw it begin
    I opened my heart to the world and the world came in

    [Verse 2]
    Hello, Mary Lou
    Hello, Miss Pearl
    My fleet-footed guides from the underworld
    No stars in the sky shine brighter than you
    You girls mean business and I do too

    [Verse 3]
    Well, I'm the enemy of treason
    An enemy of strife
    I'm the enemy of the unlived meaningless life
    I ain't no false prophet
    I just know what I know
    I go where only the lonely can go

    [Verse 4]
    I'm first among equals
    Second to none
    The last of the best
    You can bury the rest
    Bury 'em naked with their silver and gold
    Put 'em six feet under and I pray for their souls

    [Verse 5]
    What are you lookin' at?
    There's nothing to see
    Just a cool breeze that's encircling me
    Let's go for a walk in the garden
    So far and so wide
    We can sit in the shade by the fountain-side

    [Verse 6]
    I search the world over
    For the Holy Grail
    I sing songs of love
    I sing songs of betrayal
    Don't care what I drink
    I don't care what I eat
    I climb the mountains with swords on my bare feet

    [Verse 7]
    You don't know me, darlin'
    You never would guess
    I'm nothing like my ghostly appearance would suggest
    I ain't no false prophet
    I just said what I said
    I'm just here to bring vengeance on somebody's head

    [Verse 8]
    Put out your hand
    There's nothing to hold
    Open your mouth
    I'll stuff it with gold
    Oh, you poor devil, look up if you will
    The city of God is there on the hill

    [Verse 9]
    Hello, stranger
    Hello and goodbye
    You ruled the land
    But so do I
    You lusty old mule
    You got a poisoned brain
    I'll marry you to a ball and chain

    [Verse 10]
    You know, darlin'
    The kind of life that I live
    When your smile meets my smile
    Something's got to give
    I ain't no false prophet
    No, I'm nobody's bride
    Can't remember when I was born
    And I forgot when I died
