We want your information
We will do what we must
But not here or in front of people
Or on the phone

We're not all blood-sucking leeches
For we all have families too
But that don't mean that
We really love them or that we don't
'Cause I can't love you
And you can't love me
But I can love you
And you can love me

Love me

It's not a confrontation
(All across the world, open your mouth)
We are here because we are broke
(Give us what we want, we've had enough)
But we don't expect a hand out or anything
(Soul! Soul! Soul! Soul! Soul!)
'Cause I can't help you
And you can't help me
But I can help you
And you can help me

Help me
Help you
(It's not an impossible situation)
Help me
(It's not an impossible situation)

I know there is doubt we can do this
But I can help you
