the humble man rises to a new low
the humble man rises to a new low
the humble man rises, full of surprises
and cuts a dashing figure on the rocks below

iím gonna love you in spite of yourself
iím gonna love you in spite of myself
can you love me too
just like i love you
all in spite of ourselves?

a tough guy immune to the elements
a mad jackalís running with the elephants
hating god and man just for the hell of it
iím a pervert with the dreams of a celibate

and time just mutilates me more yeah
time just mutilates me more yeah
it helps me shed my skin
and the shape iím in
is better than itís ever been before

a humble man rises to a new low
a humble man rises to a new low
nothing is ending, itís all beginning
when he cuts a dashing figure on the rocks below

score another crushing defeat
itís just another crushing defeat
sweeping you off your feet
youíre stronger and youíre strongest when
your knees are weak

you might sing:
holy holy holy
Lord God Almighty
holy holy holy
Lord God Almighty
holy holy holy
Lord God Almighty
holy holy holy
