      About "Man of Stone"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Man of Stone"

      It could have been a million years ago or maybe yesterday
      I crawled out of this wilderness, a debt I had to pay
      I must have tipped the scales somewhere way back
      Never saw the seeds I'd sewn
      So now I travel backwards looking for a man of stone

      A foggy night, a neon light... I've seen him standing there
      Movin' where the shadows creep no he never did play fair
      And one night I almost got him, but I knew you'd tapped my phone
      And communication is dangerous, lookin' for a man of stone

      With Juan in Argentina I thought I saw him in the street
      In a seaplane over Hydra he sat in the captain's seat
      And I've chased him from the Colosseum down the Spanish steps in Rome
      And history just gets hazy lookin' for a man of stone

      In the mornin' out your I saw him leanin' on a tree
      Wearin' a snappy suit of grey and then he motioned to me
      He pointed with his finger, as if to say my soul he owned
      But I had sold that long ago to you lookin' for a man of stone

      Now I sit in this burnt out barn they call The Raven's Nest
      Drinkin' bloody monkeys, your name tattooed on my chest
      Sometimes I think of Juan or you or sometimes I think of hime
      And sometimes I don't think of anything but lookin' for (that's right) a man of stone
