[Riff] 
I wore the clothes you wanted
I took your name
If there is some confusion, who's to blame?
[Riff] 
I signed your living will
I smiled your face
I'm ready to close the book on NASA in outer space.

[Riff] 
I sequenced your arrival
I sealed your fate
I pushed the button
and erased your master tape
[Riff] 
I wrote the sales pitch
I threw the brake switch
I dragged your big ass
daddy roth car out of that ditch

I crossed your great divide
I stirred your oceans tide
I called your bluff until I blew your circuits mind.

I'll be your albatross,

I don't wanna be Iggy Pop but if that's what it takes, hey.
