Hello me
are you in there
making sure you're not dead,
smelled some rotting flesh

I heard you left him alone
suns up with open roads
get down
freak out
the time is right now

Drop your things
and burn your clothes
why we're here
no one knows
watch the bombs explode

He sold you a dream
and carved you up like meat
lay down
the law
locked your heart behind bars

While you were sleeping he would whisper in your ear

The monkey will bite
better eat your poultry
till' theres no use
don't try to
ask a doctor
what's going on inside you head
just fall out and get in line
like all good soliders do

You awoke to his game
running circles in your brain
can't belive you eyes

What's up what is down
he spun you around
what's near what is far
god knows what you are
can you remember when
this began

The monkey will bite
better eat your poultry
till' theres no use
don't try to
ask you doctor
what's going on inside you head
it's pretend
it's no meaning
just stare at the celing and play dead for your whole life
