lyrics

I'm a puppet
Pull my strings
Do you like the way I shake that thing?
Wanna take you for a little ride
Don’t you worry
I won’t come inside you

Everybody thinks I’m quite insane
Me, I think they’re rather inhumane
Watch the way they rip each other apart
It makes great television…but is it art?

Just like all the others, you will outgrow me
Always looking, like a fool, for what will set you free

Puppet in a pile of misfit toys
Fading signal in a sea of noise
Shards of my predecessors in my feet
Still expecting me to keep the beat

The show is over now
The laughter fades
It was an ugly little masquerade
No idea what tomorrow will bring
I want to follow you
Can’t cut my strings

When you close your eyes, and you look away
It may sound like “go to hell”, but I’m begging you to stay

I’m begging you to stay
I’m begging you to stay
I’m begging you to stay
Please don’t go away

Aw, c’mon, don’t you wanna play?

It's essentially free, but if you feel like being a fucking champion and giving him some cash for it, that'd be awesome, too. ... more
