"Marionette" as written by and Ian Hunter....
Insane people pull my strings
And I feel powerless
To cut myself down
Always so willing
To blindly trust
Those who would mislead me

Gave it all away
Gave it all away

They played me for the fool
As I danced for them all
They watched and they waited as I
Trusted with my life

I will cherish nothing
And regret all
Of what we once were
Abused and exhausted
And afraid to reach out
To anyone ever again

So now I creep back
To my charmed and
Simple little life

They played me for the fool
As I danced for them all
They watched and they waited as I
Trusted with my life

Soaked in the sorrow
Of the reality
That I no longer care
And I, I can't believe
That after all this time
I still haven't learned

Gave it all away
Gave it all away

They played me for the fool
As I danced for them all
They watched and they waited as I
Trusted with my life

Will I ever learn
Talk all you want
You only feigned interest
Why are you still talking to me?
