Monkey

**This is a punk rock song I wrote in February 1996 about taking control of your life and getting rid of the proverbial “monkey on your back”, whatever it may be.**

 

My anorexic flower

Do you know who you are?

Waiting every hour

In someone else’s car

It’s not hard to explain yourself

Even though it should be

It’s not hard to destroy yourself

Even though it should be

 

Something’s got you, pulling down

Something’s got you, dragging down

Something’s got you by the wrist

Turn the other into a fist

Reach out and touch someone

 

Something’s got you giving in

Something’s got you caving in

Something’s got you doing again

Take the gloves off and fight to win

Reach out and stop someone

 

Something’s got you doing this

Something’s got you feeling pissed

Something’s got you on the ground

Whip the bastard’s head around

Reach out and stop yourself

 

Kill your monkey

Kill your monkey

Kill your monkey

Before he kills you
