Brian Jonestown Massacre – Take It From The Man lyrics

It's just like I said
They're fucking with your head
You ain't safe in your bed
Or even when your dead
They're out to school you
So they can rule you
They try to fool you
Or just get to you

And I seen it coming down
So I headed out of town
Because I'm quick like that

I seen them on tv
They even look like me
They swear they'll set me free
But that can't really be

But I know it's coming down
So I'm headed out of town
Because I'm quick like that
Always bounce right back

Stupid magazines
Sell you useless things
Silly as it seems
They even steal your dreams

And I know it's coming down
So I'm headed out of town
Cause I'm quick like that
Never coming back
Man I feel it coming down
So I'm heading far from town
Cause I'm smart like that
Never going back
Live my life for slack
