lyrics

Wanna know where I have been all night
Is it right?
There’s blood on my body, is it mine?
Is it right?
Every time I try to speak
'Some octopus is tightening my pipes
Is that weak?
Please don’t look at me like that
I only can do what comes naturally when I’m asleep

Cleverness is as cleverness does
Is it enough?
My mouth is coarse, my eyes are out of love
Am I enough?
Try to keep my conscience clean
But it’s like I’ve been making out with mud for a week
Please don’t tell me to be shamed
I fight so hard when I’m awake
It’s just the way I am when I’m asleep

I shake my head I bellow in the night
Self-denied
I zip up my pants, I stay polite
Was it right?
There’s a harem crying out
They’re misty-eyed
And as I turn around they can weep
When I wake will I be proud
Or will I curse the shackles that are sound when I’m asleep?
