What you gonna do
When you find yourself believin
In what's up on the shelf
And what lies your hero's weavin
You're not the man you were - you never were
And your words are so deceivin
You gotta step back from yourself
And just open up your mind

Things ain't workin out, things are great
It's the deck you're given
And you can't deny success - even late
But there's so much more to livin
And you haven't done a thing - anything
Worth a nickel for tomorrow
You've got to stand back from the race
And discover what you find

So won't you save me from myself
Won't you ease my troubled soul
I'm a stranger to myself
And I'm so out of control

How you go to bed
When the world around you's weepin
With so many mourning dead
While you smile in your sleepin
And if that's sanity - you and me
We oughta pray for the asylum
We'll speak the whole damn truth
And experience no more...

So won't you save me from myself
Won't you ease my troubled soul
Won't you walk the walk with me
Won't you shiver to the bone
I'm strung out on my wealth
And just dyin to get old
Won't you save me from myself
I'm so out of control...

Fast. Rock Beat.
