Lyrics

The Monkey

Written By: Sean McCloskey

The Monkey

I’m the monkey on your back
When you come down I attack
I’ll play on your mind
I’ll tell you when it’s time to dine
I wont let you choose – and I won’t let you say no
But I will let you take your pick
And have another go

Try to shrug me off – See how long you can be
Cold sweating alone – Until your calling for me
Used to be a time – You gave your dog your devotion
Now I’m number one – Rid you of all emotion
Now its you who’s started to scratch, smell and twitch
You’ve become worse than a dog – You’ve become my bitch
A slave to the feeling only I can give
Escaping reality – What a way to live

(repeat chorus)

Try to run from me – And I’ll pull your choker
Who you trying to kid – You’ve never been the joker
Now the laughs on you – You’re so pathetic it’s funny
You even sold your dog – Just to get a little money
And you’ll beg and you’ll borrow
And you’ll cheat and you’ll steal
You’ll go to any extreme – to get my next meal

(repeat chorus)

I’ve become your obsession
You’ve lost all other possessions
Even your family turned their backs – Finally coming to terms
Having to face the fact – Its only me that you yearn
So they kicked you out of home
But don’t worry your not alone
Close behind I’ll follow
I’ll be there tomorrow
I’ll just throw you another bone

(repeat chorus)

So now you’re sleeping in the street
No shoes upon your feet
But none of that matters anymore
Because it’s now my time to eat
