lyrics

I don’t want to live my life this way, feeling like a trained monkey

Crack the whip; leave the welt, laser guided missiles, hit below the belt,
I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invisible

Snap the chain, start to flow, vocal pressure rising and I’m ready to blow, I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invincible

I don’t want to live my life this way, feeling like a trained monkey
Take me away from the hell that I pay, feeling like a trained monkey

So long, so long, so long, the feelings got to go
So long, so long, so long, I got to let you know

Face the pain, cross your eyes; throw a label at me with mass disguise
I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invisible, Open your eyes, not your wrists; dredging through life, swinging your fists, I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invincible

I don’t want to live my life this way, feeling like a trained monkey
So long, so long, so long, the feelings got to go
So long, so long, so long, I got to let you know

Don’t want to live my life this way, don’t want to be a trained monkey
Take me away from the hell that I pay, one more time I face the pain.

Don’t want to live my life this way, don’t want to be a trained monkey.
Just stop, chop the rhythms that I drop, I’m never coming down from the mountain top, yea.

So long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long
I got to let you know

I don’t want to
live my life this way.
