Number Man:

It was the midst of summer, no, it was the midst of winter when I could feel him clawing.

I couldn't hear him because he worshipped the sound of his own voice.

But now

he tries to explain

but I just can't

understand

But everybody wants to know

Everybody wants to know

Everybody wants to know

The plight of the number man

 

Take a chance

You are number one

Leave no trail

Of blood and dust behind

 

He tried to change me

He tried to fix me

He started to do something

But I made him just stop

You said

That good things

Should come

To good people

So now I want to know

I’ve always wanted to know

I’ve always wanted to know

The plight of the number man

 

Take a chance

You are number one

Leave no trail

Cause he will follow you into the night

 

And now I sit here and realize

That I am you, you are me

 

I’m the number man

I am number one
