lyrics

i knew a woman of a thousand reasons
she had an answer for everything.
i used to kiss her, to keep her from speaking
i've done the strangest things.

i was a soldier and my anger was the weapon
i drew the battle lines on every side.
i built a prison and i called it freedom
i've done the strangest things.

i should have known there was trouble...
the lie at the end of the tunnel was blinding...

shake the rattle at the jungle wall, take the fire from the dragons jaw
chase the devil from the neighborhood, just to watch him run.
pound the drum 'till the wildman comes
risin' from my soul again, feel the power in my hands...
i'm a revolution man.

i learned the language of the uninvited
i learned to fool myself a thousand ways.
i was the poet in the house of silence
i've done the strangest things.

i knew an old man with the face of winter
he never noticed that the seasons change.
i took his photographs and covered up the mirror
i've done the strangest things.

shake the rattle at the jungle wall, take the fire from the dragons jaw
chase the devil from the neighborhood, just to watch him run.
pound the drum 'till the wildman comes
risin' from my soul again, feel the power in my hands...
i'm a revolution man.

rage, rage, rage... rage against the
chains, chains, chains... shout about it.
change, change, change... change is gonna come, come, come...

shake the rattle at the jungle wall, take the fire from the dragons jaw
chase the devil from the neighborhood, just to watch him run.
pound the drum 'till the wildman comes
risin' from my soul again, feel the power in my hands...
i'm a revolution man.
