[Incomprehensible] to kingdom come
Sadly told his only son
"Just be careful what you do
It all comes back on you"

False witness spread the news
Somebody's gonna lose
Either she or me or you
Nothing we could do

So don't you say a word
Or reveal a thing you've learned
Time will tell you well
If you truly, truly fell

Tarred and feathered, yeah
Thistles and thorns
One or the other, he kindly warns

Now you look out the window
Tell me, what do you see?
I see a golden calf pointing back at me

I been sitting in here for so darn long
Waitin' for the end to come along
Holy roaster on the brink
I take a chance, swim or sink

False witness, cast an evil eye
Said I cannot tell a lie
[Incomprehensible] and saints don't bother me
I'm not alone you see

Don't you say a word
Or reveal a thing you've heard
Time will tell you well
If you truly, truly fell

Tarred and feathered, yeah
Thistles and thorns
One or the other, he kindly warns

Now you look out the window
Tell me what do you see?
I see a golden calf pointing back at me
