Fly On The Wall lyrics

fly on the wall
I am the fly on the wall
my prying eyes are looking
through your bottom drawer
I just came flying through your door
you didn't notice that your number had been called.
I see the mother who's beating the babe,
I see the money, the pennies you save,
stored on computers from birth to the grave
the fly on the wall he's seeing it all.
I am the fly upon the wall
you're in the index of the files that stand so tall
although your health is rather poor
we have a place for those who cannot find a cure.
I know your income your daily crust
I know your pleasures, your passion, your lust
I know when you're living
and I know when you're dust - the fly on the wall
he's seeing it all.
one is born and one will die,
it's all understood the bit
that's in the middle doesn't count
I am the fly on the wall
my prying eyes are looking
through your bottom drawer
I just came flying through your door you didn't notice
that your number had been called.
I see the mother who's beating the babe,
I see the money, the pennies you save,
stored on computers from birth to the grave
the fly on the wall he's seeing it all.
I am the fly upon the wall
you're in the index of the files that stand so tall
although your health is rather poor
we have a place for those who cannot find a cure.
I know your income your daily crust
I know your pleasures, your passion, your lust
I know when you're living and I know when
you're dust - the fly on the wall he's seeing it all.
