Lyrics

Monkey

Written By: BNG

Wrote the book on what one shouldn’t do
Called The Savior in Me is the Devil in You
Held my breath until my faced turned blue
You chastise me for the things you do.*

*Out of the red and into the black
I know how high the chips are stacked
Out of the black and into the red
I’d rather play Russian roulette.

Then maybe I’d know where this story goes…

Faults have made me a better man
The more I forget the more I understand
Though she wished I had a better plan
She chose to stay when she should have ran*

*Out of the red and into the black
I know how high the chips are stacked
Out of the black and into the red
I’d rather play Russian roulette.

Then maybe I’d know where this story goes…

Found you in my Head again
Nervous from the thrill
Found you in my head again
Melt my iron will
Burn all other memories
Your presence gives me chills
Don't get me wrong
I never meant to spend all your wasted time
Don't get me wrong I never meant to search for what you let me find
Pushing me so far away
Are demons at your door?
Share your haunting memories
And I'll just ask for more
Don't get me wrong I never meant the pain of giving you my all
Don't get me wrong I never meant to feel, I never meant to fall
You shared with me the pain you kept within your heart
You took the best I had to give and would quietly depart
Who do you think you were?
Just who do you think you are
To leave without a trace, to leave without a scar?
Don't get me wrong I'm giving back what's yours and taking back what's mine
Don't get me wrong the truth was in the pain but the pain's just in my mind

Such Is Art
