Two Face!

Lyrics

Two-face (1)
That's what they call me
They call me a two-face
Two-face
That's what they call me
They call me a two-face
Two-face, boat-race disgraced
His face displaced again
Into two dimensions 
Into two directions
Two-face, boat-race displaced 
My face disgraced again
Into the dimensions
Into two directions

Nowhere for him to go

That's what they call me
They call me a two-face
Two-face
That's what they call me
They call me a two-face
Two-face, boat-race
Disgraced hisface
Displaced again
Into two dimensions
Into two directions
Two-face, boat-race
Displaced his face
Disgraced
Into two dimensions 
Origin horrible
Two-face, boat race
Disgraced
His face Displaced again
Into two dimensions 
Into two directions
For all
For all to see

He thinks at dawn
He acts at noon
He stays alone
And in the evening (2)

Two-face, both ways
Disgraced
His face displaced again
Into two directions 
Into two dimensions

Left side, horrible (1)

Two-face, boat race
Disgraced
His face displaced again
Into two directions
Into two dimensions

Two-face
That's what they call me
They call me a two-face
Two-face
That's what they call me
They call me a two-face

Two-face, both ways disgraced
His face displaced again
Into two directions

Notes

1. Two-Face is a villain in the Batman stories. Batman's ally, the Gotham D.A. Harvey Dent, gets crazy and sinister after a mobster throws acid in his face, disfiguring the left side of his countenance. Two-Face habitually flips a coin in order to decide whether to do good or evil (see also "Dice Man").  

^ ("Two-Face")          ^ ("Left side, horrible")

2. A "proverb of Hell" from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: "Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night."  ^

In England, the Boat Race is most often taken to refer to the annual match-up between crews from Oxford and Cambridge universities:

"Boat race" is also Cockney rhyming slang for "face", I think.
