Album: Death on the Mountain
(Speedy Johnson)

 
I am the man from oblivion
Everything I learned, I have since forgotten
I’ll come to you as a gypsy
I’ll come to you as an Arabian prince
I’ll come to you as a hometown bum

 

I’ll come holding destiny in my right hand
Loved and un-bathed and rejected where I stand
Sometimes you only see what you want to believe
Well, I am the man from oblivion
Everything I learned, I have since forgotten

 

I am the man from oblivion
Everything I learned, I have since forgotten
Always seems to be a piece of what you been in what you are
I stare to the sky, I feel the rain, but I still see the stars
From the clouds to the clay, I’ll be as true as a man can say

 

I am not a bad man for loving too much
You say that ain’t, that ain’t, that ain’t love
Well, the part of me that agrees brings me to my knees
I am diseased, fallen from the trees
I am the man from oblivion
Everything I learned, I have since forgotten
