I met a man from the seven seas
In the land of the brave and the home of the free
He got Greek ways and nefarious means
He say, "Give and forgive, and you get what you need"

Hey dreadlocks and dirty jeans
Yeah man, my hearts broke and its on my sleeve
Let's sail it away to the panama breeze
Where the Kuna dance on a white sand beach

…all night

I see people's confused and religion's the cause
All them Buddha and Allah and Jesus and Jah
I saw the truth on a bathroom wall
Passed a spliff up to a prophet in the very next stall

Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies
Be a broken watch wearing Father Time
If you pray to God, keep the Devil in mind
If you look upon the world with the eyes of a child
You can see…  

Just what all this means.

Theres a crushed Coke can in a fire that died
Like a good old boy, drinking whiskey and rye
Theres a one dollar bill at the end of the line
Where you lost a good friend over fucked up minds

Don't ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies
I'm a broken watch wearing Father Time
I pray to God with the devil in mind
Sometimes on the sea in the night I scream out loud
