Lyrics

I’m a cultural infidel
Painting in the dark
I’m a cultural infidel
Singin’ in the park
Socrates, hypotheses, the music of Mozart
I’m a cultural infidel
Comin’ from the heart

Free thinkin’, hood-winkin’, unblinkin’ mon
Start trouble, burst bubbles, join my caravan
Someone’s got to talk about accountability
Someone’s got to raise some hell
I guess it could be me

I’m a cultural infidel
Tryin’ to draw a crowd
I’m a cultural infidel
Singin’ right out loud
Philosophy is not for me, laughin’ is my game
I’m a cultural infidel
Slap me with the blame

Loose cannon, Armageddon, preacher’s at the door
Spittin’ poison at the boys’n’ girls on the dance floor
I hear them in the Congress
I see them on TV
I hope the Inquisition remains a memory

Al diablo Picasso, Al diablo Manet
Al diablo Fontainebleu, Al diablo Hemingway
O diab Dr. Thompson, O diab San Joan
O diab Village People, O diab Rolling Stone

Someone’s got to talk about accountability
Someone’s got to raise some hell
It might as well be me

I’m a cultural infidel
‘Believe in common sense
I’m a cultural infidel
Love the present tense
But we have to keep a lookout for those mean old backed up farts
I’m a cultural infidel
Comin’ from the heart

My heart, my heart, my heart
Mon coeur…
Will I see you in heaven?
Will I see you in hell?
Will I see you in Rio
Only time will…
Will I see you in heaven?
Will I see you in hell?
Will I see you tomorrow?
Only time will tell
