Intro 
verse 1 
Time to turn an ear to the middle man 
There's another lesson to be learned 
He who laughs the last is the better man 
A man needs his soul when he's getting burned 
verse 2 
I was made to feel like a sinner man 
Left without a hope to do or die 
Only half a chance to begin again 
A man wants to be alone when he needs to cry 
Interlude 
The first will be last 
The meek will be strong 
Does anybody know 
Who is right and who is wrong? 
I gave it all I had 
I tried to understand 
Pushed it all away 
With a sweep from my hand 
Now it's time to turn an ear to the middle man 
Interlude 
verse 3 
I feel it's time to run to the middle man 
There's another heartache on it's way 
He who takes it all is the better man 
A man needs to step aside when he's in the way 
Oh the first will be last 
And the meek will be strong 
Does anybody know 
Who is right and who is wrong? 
I gave it all I had 
I tried to understand 
I pushed it all away 
With a sweep from my hand 
And now it's time to turn to the middle man 
Bridge 
There's another lesson to be learned 
He who laughs the last is the better man
