I'm a man without a soul, honey
Who lost it while parading it
In a town full of thieves
Y'see I didn't wanna be
With any people I know
But God knows I didn't wanna be alone
I thought if I acted like someone else
I'd feel more comfortable with myself

So I showered down
Left my little room
Jumped in my car
(for protection from hostility)
Well, it ain't easy to be bold
In an unknown city
I was feeling strong mouthed
But weak willed
When I ran into the cure for my ills

Don't tell me what your name is
I want your body not your mind
I want a feeling worth paying for
Before I say good-bye
But as I was talking
I couldn't look her in the eyes
I just kept wondering
How many men
Unleashed their frustration
Between her thighs

There'll be no sleep 'til the morning
There'll be no lullabies
Coz the Devil's borrowed my clothes
Just for tonight

Well, my adrenaline was curdling like cream
As I was being led by the hand
Through the sound of sirens
And the distant noise of some drunken jazz band
Through the stench of disinfectant
That infected my head
Through the darkness of a corridor
And into a strangers bed

Well, I didn't wanna hurt your feelings honey
But I couldn't suppress my own
I had to pull myself out of this nosedive
By proving something to myself

She was lying on her back
With her lips parted
Squealing like a stuffed pig
I was going through the motions
Faking the emotions
Wriggling around like a lizard in a tin

Trying so hard to cleanse myself
I was turning into somebody else
I was trying so hard to please myself
I was turning into somebody else
I was trying so hard to be myself
I was turning into somebody else

Come my love, with your desire
Out of the blue ... and into the fire
