    I'm tired of your psychology
    to bring me to my bended knees
    And if I could only talk to you
    I'm sure that I could make you see


    'Cause time has a way
    of bringing even mountains down, down, down
    Storm clouds are coming
    I suggest you head for higher ground

     

    I say you're a thing of the past
    and you ain't gonna last
    no matter what you say or do
    It's all caught up to you

     

    You're duty-free, you're tax-exempt
    You party with the President
    And you dance the dance so naturally
    why not believe you're Heaven-sent

     

    But time has a way of bringing
    even mountains down, down, down
    There's a dark cloud a-commin'
    I insist you head for higher ground

     

    You talk talk and you get so intense
    that you almost make sense
    and that's what scares me the most
    You as the host of Celebrity Lies
    It's Prime-Time baby
    Can't you see in my eyes, it's a

     

    Cold War--runnin' in the streets
    Everybody you meet knows
    it's going down, don't you know
    Cold War--blowing in the air
    Everyone everywhere says it's time
    to get ready for a Cold War
    Don't you look now
    but the skinny boy's becoming a man

     

    You say it's the luck of the draw
    and you can't have it all
    and I'll die young trying to make it
    into something that ain't gonna last
    You ought to reconsider
    'cause I'm coming fast with a

     

    Cold War--running in the street
    Everybody you meet
    knows it's going down, don't you know
    Cold War--blood is in the air
    Everyone everywhere says it's time
    to get ready for a Cold War looking at me
    From behind every tree
    there's a scared man running from a
    Cold War--Don't you look now
    but the skiny boy's a street-fighting man

     


    The Caught in the Act video version (and what was performed onstage) added an additional verse:

     

    Try as you will, you can't escape the chill
    that penetrates your clothing,
    demanding that you feel
    all the trouble that surrounds you,
    the bad mixed with the good,
    the heartless bits of data waiting to be understood
    Information Central promptly processed your request,
    the task we're told honestly requires you acquiesce.

    Well, blind faith put you where you are now
    You're a selfish old cow gettin' high on society's milk.
    We pay your bills, life should be so tough.
    You'd better watch your fat ass, 'cause we've had enough
