I've been now saunterin' out and down a path sometime
Come on, it takes me nowhere which I know
Faces everywhere pulling' grins and signs and things
Tellin' me not there man, it's no go

I need a reason, I can't think without one now
Too much learning got to show
Call it treason, maybe catch her don't know how
Too many things too much to know

I'll bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
Lady screamin', lady leave me out
'Cause sometimes people stare, sittin' down electric chair
And steaming crowds they gather and they shout

Don't know why this evil bothers me
(Take another chance boy carry the fight
You can take him if you're fast)
So why is he trying to follow me?
(Didn't I say if you're holdin' on
You'd be laughing at the last)
How many reasons do they need?
(I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice)
I might just believe this time
(You're singing out of tune but the beats in time
And it's us who make the noise)

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself
It's a new religion

Okay my reasonin' might be clouded by the sun
But someone sees the departmental lie
You know this peacetime, jabbing fist in, stabbing knife
Only get one look before you die

Don't know why this evil bothers me
(Take another chance boy carry the fight
You can take him if you're fast)
So why is he trying to follow me?
(Didn't I say if you're holdin' on
You'd be laughing at the last)
How many reasons do they need?
(I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice)
I might just believe this time
(You're singing out of tune but the beats in time
And it's us who make the noise)

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself
It's a new religion

Gotta take pay from the saints 'n' sinners
In regulation hats 'n scarves 'n things
Walking in formation down the lane
They carry their cross make a church bell ring

Army majors pull a mean cool truth
They're a-lying in the swimming pool
Searching for the undeniable truth
That a man is just a fool

Don't know why this evil bothers me
(Take another chance boy carry the fight
You can take him if you're fast)
So why is he trying to follow me?
(Didn't I say if you're holdin' on
You'd be laughing at the last)
How many reasons do they need?
(I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice)
I might just believe this time
(You're singing out of tune but the beats in time
And it's us who make the noise)

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself
It's a new religion
