Same Man I Was Before Lyrics

by Oingo Boingo

I'm not the same man I was before
I haven't changed my perception
I haven't lost my protection
I haven't lost, haven't lost, haven't lost
What I have, lost intentions

Two by two coming through the door
Singing like a bird
Boys and girls voices joined in song
Voices in the air
Fire crackers making so much noise
Flying in the air
They all start yelling at me
Everything you do is wrong

I'm not the same boy I was before
But I've not changed my desires
I've not extinguished the fires
I haven't lost wide eyed wonder
I haven't lost, haven't lost, haven't lost
The stupid fear of thunder

Two by two walking hand in hand
Walkin' in the air
The bone come marching from the promised land
Comes from everywhere
Their voices carry like the sound of glass
Breaking on the ground
It burns my ears when they sing
Everything you do is wrong

I'm not the same ghost I was before
But I still converse with the spirits
When people talk I don't hear it
I walk through doors when no one sees me
I disappear, I disappear, disappear
Whenever it may please me
