Original video
What are you going to say to me?
Will you be betraying me?
Come the meantimes

Will you be deceiving me?
And beyond believing in me?
Come the meantimes

He came back (right back)
And nobody blinked
He came back (right back)
At least I think that he did
He came back (right back)
And he ran and he hid
And he muttered and moaned
And said, "Let's go get stoned."

Will you be denying me?
Will you still come crying to me
Come the meantimes

Are you still obeying me?
Will you still be praying to me?
Come the meantimes

(Right now) Will you sit in judgment then?
(Right now) Be the first one to condemn
(Right now) Come the meantimes

(Right now) Now you've got nobody else to blame
(Right now) And trouble remembering my name
(Right now) Will you still be cursing me
Come our anniversary?
Come the meantimes

He came back (right back)
And they followed and failed
He came back (right back)
He got hammered and nailed
He came back (right back)
And he wandered alone
He said, "Let's gather some stones
And make them atone."


(Right now) Now I'm in a hall of mirrors
(Right now) With my secret thoughts and terrors
(Right now) Come the meantimes

(Right now) And I'm drinking to your health
Find I'm only talking to myself
Come the meantimes

He came back (right back)
And nobody blinked
He came back (right back)
At least I think that he did
He came back (right back)
Then he ran and he hid
And he muttered and moaned
And said, "Let's go get stoned."

Blossoms fragrant opening
Poppies full of opium
Come the meantimes

Phony prophets offer hope
That's a different kind of dope
Come the meantimes
Come the meantimes
Come the meantimes

Right now
Right now
Right now

Right now
Right now
Right now

Right now
Right now
Right now
Gather some stones and make them atone

Right now
Right now
Right now
Come the meantimes
