The Nisa: Lyrics from The Moods of Innocence

"When I am Only Man"

listening to jesus on a morning radio
shows me the outside and the world has gotten cold.
will she open her arms and pull me in?
tells me she understands when i am only man.

21, here i am
a screaming little boy within this pseudo-man
who keeps spreading himself thin with nothing gained,
living a life of sin and still donít feel ashamed.

know a girl close to me,
man sheís 44 but thinks sheís 17.
living her life out through her girl but never sees,
never stops to think she could end up like me.

we never see all these things we want are tearing me apart.

say a prayer for the little boy whose dadís in cuffs.
he walks around the car and gives his dad a hug
and the old-man starts to cry because he knows,
that his little boy is pretending he donít know.

listening to jesus on the morning radio
shows me the outside and the world has gotten cold.
will she open up her arms and pull me in?
tells me she understands when i am only man.
tells me she understands when i am only man.
