Effigy

Last night

I saw a fire burning on

The palace lawn.

O'er the land

The humble subjects watched in mixed

Emotion.

CHORUS:

Who is burnin'?

Who is burnin'?

Effigy.

Who is burnin'?

Who is burnin'?

Effigy.

Last night

I saw the fire spreadin' to

The palace door.

Silent majority

Weren't keepin' quiet

Anymore.

CHORUS

Last night

I saw the fire spreadin' to

The country side.

In the mornin'

Few were left to watch

The ashes die.

CHORUS

Why?

Why?

Why?

Effigy.

Is this it?

I told you ’bout living in the u.s. of a.

Don’t you know that I’m a gangster of love

Let me tell you people that I found a new way

And I’m tired of all this talk about love

And the same old story with a new set of words

About the good and the bad and the poor

And the times keep on changin’

So I’m keepin’ on top

Of every fat cat who walks through my door

I’m a space cowboy

Bet you weren’t ready for that

I’m a space cowboy

I’m sure you know where it’s at

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I was born on this rock

And I’ve been travelin’ through space

Since the moment I first realized

What all you fast talkin’ cats would do if you could

You know, I’m ready for the final surprise

There ain’t no way around it

Ain’t nothing to say

That’s gonna satisfy my soul deep inside

All the prayers and surveyors

Keep the whole place uptight

While it keeps on gettin’ darker outside

I’m a space cowboy

Bet you weren’t ready for that

I’m a space cowboy

I’m sure you know where it’s at

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I see the show downs, slow downs, lost and found, turn arounds

The boys in the military shirts

I keep my eyes on the prize, on the long fallen skies

And I don’t let my friends get hurt

All you back room schemers, small trip dreamers

Better find something new to say

Cause you’re the same old story

It’s the same old crime

And you got some heavy dues to pay

I’m a space cowboy

Bet you weren’t ready for that

I’m a space cowboy

I’m sure you know where it’s at

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
