You have opened my eyes I don't want to see the dogs and their hungry smiles It's very sad, I want to get out I don't have to build a future out of dry food and bones Or very soon You can make me sit and roll over play dead Would be so damn nice I don't want to be your dog for the rest of my life I'm all set to get out I'm all set to get out of this voluntary cage My future was made I had a lot going my way, no way, Always a serpentine smile, for the foolish grind But then the sun sets suddenly nothing will remain the same I'll keep this up until I feel the darkness is around me They are still around me, I can feel 'em coming They are all around me, and I'm going under My, my, my So beware, there is always something else we find to fear It is not OK, it's a shame. I could blame it on the way we were raised And if this is wrong You can make me sit and roll over play dead Would be so damn nice, I'll look back on my dog days as the best of my life I'll keep it up until I feel the darkness is around me
