If you ask me how I knew, I saw you
Had a bird's eye view of a bird's eye view, saw you
Saw you not as you think
Simply just as you, I saw you

And all of this augers well
Even though its presaging pell mell
All of it augers well
This is the bastard of it being, we got the bastard having to choose
This is the bastard

Then you turned all Billy Sunday, shoutin'
Philadelphia for Christ and Christ for Philadelphia
As the sun groomed the plane with crepuscular rays
When I saw you

And all of this augers well
Even so, its presaging pell mell
And all of it augers well
This is the bastard of it being, this is the bastard having to choose
This is the bastard

Having to choose between a flickering fuse and power
Beyond what you use
Never mind us purple Italians
Never mind that pool in the mountains

Victory came and went on winged elephants, I saw you
And all of this augers well
Even though, even so its presaging pell mell
All of it augers well

This is the bastard
This the bastard
This the bastard
