  • For a master of deception and subterfuge
    You've made yourself quite the bed to lie in
    Do your time travelin' through the tannin' booth
    So you don't let the sun catch you cryin'

    So predictable, I know what you're thinkin'

    My teeth are beatin' and my knees are weak
    It's as if there's somethin' up with the wirin'
    You can poke your head behind the mountain peak
    Don't have to mean that you've gone into hidin'

    So predictable, I know what you're thinkin'

    I'm watchin' your every move
    I feel the tears are comin' on
    It won't be long
    It won't be long
    Straight from the cover shoot
    Still a trace of body paint
    On your legs and on your arms and on your face
    And I'm keepin' on my costume
    And callin' it a writin' tool
    And if you're thinkin' of me
    I'm probably thinkin' of you

    There's still a trace of body paint
    On your legs and on your arms and on your face
    There's still a trace of body paint
    On your legs and on your arms and on your face
    There's still a trace of body paint
    On your legs and on your arms and on your face
    There's still a trace of body paint
    On your legs and on your arms and on your face

    So predictable, I know what you're thinkin'

    Ooh, ha
    Yeah
