I CONTAIN MULTITUDES


















I CONTAIN MULTITUDES







Today, and tomorrow, and yesterday, too

The flowers are dying, like all things do




Follow me close, I知 going to Bally-na-Lee

I値l lose my mind if you don稚 come with me




I fuss with my hair, and I fight blood feuds

I contain multitudes




Got a tell tale heart, like Mr. Poe

Got skeletons in the walls of people you know




I値l drink to the truth, and the things we said

I値l drink to the man that shares your bed




I paint landscapes, and I paint nudes

I contain multitudes




A red Cadillac, and a black mustache

Rings on my fingers that sparkle and flash




Tell me what痴 next, what shall we do

Half my soul, baby, belongs to you




I'll rollick and I'll frolic with all the young dudes

I contain multitudes




I知 just like Anne Frank, like Indiana Jones

And them British bad boys, the Rolling Stones




I go right to the edge, I go right to the end

I go right where all things lost are made good again




I sing the songs of experience, like William Blake

I have no apologies to make




Everything痴 flowing, all at the same time

I live on a boulevard of crime




I drive fast cars, and I eat fast foods

I contain multitudes




Pink pedal pushers, red blue jeans

All the pretty maids, and all the old queens




All the old creeds, from all my past lives

I carry four pistols and two large knives




I知 a man of contradictions, I知 a man of many moods

I contain multitudes




You greedy old wolf, I値l show you my heart

But not all of it, only the hateful part




I値l sell you down the river, I'll put a price on your head

What more can I tell you, I sleep with life and death in the same bed




Get lost, madam, get up off my knee

Keep your mouth away from me




I値l keep the path open, the path in my mind

I値l see to it that there痴 no love left behind




I play Beethoven Sonatas, Chopin痴 Preludes

I contain multitudes
