"Monkey On A Wire" as written by and Shane Anthony Nicholson....
They make no sounds,
They ring no bell
Leaving no traces,
They got no tales to tell

They find no home,
They make no love
Casting no shadow while balancing above

Oh oh here I go me and my desire
Everyone's got their own monkey on a wire

Oh oh down below, leader of the choir
Is waiting for the next monkey on a wire

They keep no fear, no second prize
Walking like Jesus with voodoo in their eyes

They come in green, they leave in black
Holding dead roses with bullets in their backs

Oh oh here I go me and my desire
Everyone's got their own monkey on a wire

Oh oh down below, wrapped up in the fire
Waiting for the next monkey on a wire

They make no sound, they ring no bell
Walking like Jesus goin' straight-on into hell

Oh oh there you go, you and your desire
Everyone's got their own monkey on a wire

Oh oh down below, leader of the choir
Is waiting for the next monkey on a wire

Oh oh down below, wrapped up in the fire
Waiting for the next monkey on a wire

Waiting for the next monkey on a wire
Waiting for the next monkey on a wire
