Nobody's Acolyte

Promise me nothing – I’m not interested in your vows Between the farmer and the field Is just another broken plow No backtalk allowed – All discourse now falls short A culture of mellow drama And every day is the last resort I’m a really nice guy and a real good sport But it’s only to three people that I report Nobody’s acolyte – I’m not your man You can say whatever you want, But don’t count on me to understand Nobody’s acolyte – No never uh-uh Doctrine and dogma – Manifestos and miniature threats It’s nothing to me – the bug mentality Remembers that everybody forgets Erasing all debts – Don’t worry the war will be there You could set your sundial by the eclipse The God of the Scroll at which you stare I’d gladly follow you anywhere If my senses were impaired Nobody’s acolyte – I’m not your man You can say whatever you want, But don’t count on me to understand Nobody’s acolyte – No never uh-uh I’m nobody’s acolyte You’re all spleen and no ideal I’m not just gonna sit around and watch While your hidden agendas are revealed I ain’t nobody’s dog So don’t expect me to heel I can see it in your eyes you don’t get it But try to hold sway you will live to regret it
