Night time happenings always lingering on your mind.
Erase the fact that you caught being Mr. Two Time.
Your face tells every lie it can.
Stumbling your way outside and look what you see next.
A man you recognise who on good days looks bad at best.
And the sweat brings a sting to your eyes.

I won't be there to see you falling when you both land.
You're both about as useless.
So please, lend me a hand of wasted time and two wasted days.

He knows what's going on 'cause he wasn't born yesterday.
How soon will this act stop and when will you be on your way?
My friend, the last bus has arrived.
D'ya think he came down the last shower 'cause he ain't said a word about your foolish acts and how you're being so absurd.
My friend, you're finished now.

Can see it in his eyes his ego says otherwise.
So bring him down a notch and then remove his disguise.
Where's his face?
He'll pull a bluff and you'll be fooled like every other time this happened.
He'll keep talking short of the truth although you've got proof.
Produce your papers proving that this act ain't a spoof.
My friend, we've been gone too long.
