Use the Man
I saw her today
I saw her face
It was the face that I loved
And I knew I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray
That they'd go away
But still they'd begin
Needles and pins

I heard somebody fixed today
There was no last goodbyes to say
His will to live ran out
I heard somebody turned to dust
Looking back at what he left
A list of plans and photographs
Songs that never will be sung
These are the things he won't get done
The things he won't get done

I've seen the man use the needle (seen the needle use the man)
I've seen them crawl from the cradle (to the gutter on their hands)
They fight a war but it's fatal (it's so hard to understand)
I've seen the man use the needle (seen the needle use the man)

Just one shot to say goodbye
One last taste to mourn and cry
Cry, cry
Scores and shoots, the lights go dim
Just one shot to do him in
He hangs his head and wonders why
Why the monkey only lies
Lies, lies
But pay the pauper he did choose
He hung his head inside the noose
He hung his head inside the noose

I've seen the man use the needle (seen the needle use the man)
I've seen them crawl from the cradle (to the gutter on their hands)
They fight a war but it's fatal (it's so hard to understand)
I've seen the man use the needle (seen the needle use the man)

Cryptic writing
On the wall (the beginning of the end)
I've seen myself use the needle (seen the needle in my hand)

I've seen the man use the needle (seen the needle use the man)
I've seen them crawl from the cradle (to the gutter on their hands)
They fight a war but it's fatal (it's so hard to understand)
I've seen myself use the needle (seen the needle in my hand)
(In my hand)
(In my hand)
In my hand
