I'm the man of a thousand faces
A little piece of me in every part I take
I hold the tape for a thousand races
A different point of view in every speech I make

Cut me a piece of my divided soul
Cry me a river, call it rock and roll
Give me an attitude and watch me make it lie
Pass me a microphone I need to testify

Well I speak to machines with the voice of humanity
Speak to the wise with the voice of insanity
Speak to the present in the past and future tense
I speak to a slave with the voice of obedience

I'm a man of a thousand ages
You see my face in the stones of the Parthenon
You hear my song in the babble of Babylon

I'm a man of a thousand riches
Be my guest at the feast of Satyricon
You spend the money that my logo's printed on

Well I'll speak to machines with the voice of humanity
Speak to the wise with the voice of insanity
Speak to the present in the past and future tense
I speak to a slave with the voice of obedience

I stole a fire but it burned up much too soon
I took a leap and I landed on the moon
Look at my life and it looks like CNN
You see something once, you know it's gonna come around again

Well I'll speak to machines with the voice of humanity
Speak to the wise with the voice of insanity
Speak to a woman with the fatal charm of a snake
Forgive like a giver and account for all I take

Yes, I speak to machines with the voice of humanity
Speak to the wise with the voice of insanity
Speak like a leader with the voice of power and command
And when I talk to God I know He'll understand

'Cause I'm the man of a thousand faces
Yes I'm the man of a thousand faces
Yes I'm the man of a thousand faces
I'm the man of a thousand faces

I stole a fire but it burned up too much too soon
I took a leap and I landed on the moon

Voice of command
Voice of a snake
Voice of humanity
Voice of insanity

Voice of command
Voice of insanity
Voice of humanity
Voice of insanity
Voice of command
Voice of obedience

Thousand faces
Thousand races
Cry me a river
Face in the stars
Stones in the Parthenon
Babble of Babylon

Voice of command
Voice of a snake
Voice of humanity
Voice of insanity

Thousand faces
Thousand races
Cry me a river
Steal a fire

Face in the stars
Stones in the Parthenon
Babble of Babylon
Landed on the moon
