Let me stay I can make it worth your while
You know you never know
What these situations could become if we could only do just what we’re told

I wanna spin around
The scenery is always much more arresting when it’s dull
I don’t know how it got into this mess

I must have been pulled on my hands and knees
By my hair and teeth
Surely I’da known if I’da come here on my own

They treat me well
Well they treat me and they don’t make me sleep out in the cold
All in all an experience you’d much rather witness than behold
I wanna spit it out but they’ll retrieve it and they’ll just shove it in another hole
I don’t know how to get out of this mess
I can't be consoled

On my hands and knees
By my hair and teeth
Surely I condone that I could leave here on my own


Sick of counting the hours
I wanna be out in the flowers til then
This isn't easy
Disease agrees with no one but itself
You never know cause you ordinary people got it made
So we take you over
Resistance is as futile as you feel

We only need your help
