Last night I had this dream that I took you out of power.
All your plans had fallen through.
You had ambition, and I took that too.
I dethroned you. I'm now the king of this castle,
And you will atone for your sins.
You're always up or down
But you're never around.
Well, friends like you
I think I'm better off without.
Everyone is talking,
But they all sound the same.
All these singers singing
They play the same games.
You're as crooked as the California coast line.
So I'm sending you a tornado to get back east.
You're always up or down
But you're never around.
Well, friends like you
I think I'm better off without.
So hold on tight
Enjoy the ride.
And maybe your fear will subside.
You're a real piece of work.
I guess I'll be seeing you around
