Yesterday, just a dream I don't remember
Tomorrow, still a hope I've yet to indulge
I'm out of time, I'm out of rhyme, I'm out of reason
Season's change and leave me out in the cold

The story's old, the tale been told by many scholar
Got a fistful of dollar and pocketful of love
God above if You hear me cryin'
I've tried to sell my soul but no one's buyin'
Lord, strike me down now if I'm lyin'

Lord strike me down
Lord strike me down
Lord strike me down
It's gettin' cold It's time for dyin'

Come on and watch me shine
Like the world is mine today
(Check it out)
Come on and watch me shine

(Check it out)
Like the world is mine today
Watch me shine
(Check it out)

Let the man who's free from sin
Free from sin
Cast the first stone and begin the violence
Begin the violence

Let the man whose words ring true
Speak on up till his voice breaks through the silence
Through the silence
Let the ones who lose their way

Live to see just one more day in the sunshine
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
Let the ones who choose to stray
Recognize the prize they'll pay In their lifetime
In their lifetime, in their lifetime

Come on and watch me shine
Like the world is mine today
(Check it out)
Come on and watch me shine

(Check it out)
Like the world is mine today
Watch me shine
(Check it out)

Sittin' you wait for my roads to cross
You nail me down and you watch me bleed
Bronx Style Bob: watch me bleed
So lay my head against the earth

Plant my body like a seed
Plant my body like a seed
You can't always get the things you want, love
(Check it out)

Tell me what you want
Get what you deserve or maybe what you need
Uh, tell me what you need
So fill my hole with precious dirt, love
Till the soil and part the weed

Come on and watch me shine
Like the world is mine today
(Check it out)
Come on and watch me shine

(Check it out)
Like the world is mine today
Watch me shine
(Check it out)
