Musical Journeys

years spent
bent
feeling broken
intent
on survival
but sometimes
forgetting how to care

years meant
went
disappearing
invent
some rational
some reasons
for forgetting how to share

did you ever feel like a rhesus monkey
someone's experimenting on you
did you ever feel like somebody's flunkey
criticizing everything you do

years worn
torn
feeling beaten
adorn
with pretention
but sometimes
you wish it could be real

years sworn
mourn
holy swearing
reborn
into convention
but sometimes
you wish you could feel

did you ever act like a rhesus monkey
reacting to the world around you
did you ever think it was getting funky
not understanding everything you do

did you ever feel like a thesus monkey
locked within yur own experiment
seeing no way out of the path you've chosen
wondering what the hell it all meant
wondering what came of the time and money you spent
wondering where all the great intentions went
wondering what excuse you'll next invent

brave new coward
face the music
you've got it all
you don't use it
too afraid
to understand
you are caged
by your own hands

years lost
bossed
feeling nothing
but frost
no more sensation
no answers
just the same old grind

years cost
tossed
out the window
or sauced
mind alteration
great escapes
leave yourself behind

and you won't have to feel like a rhesus monkey
cause you won't feel anything at all
and you won't mind being someone's flunkey
cause you won't have a mind at all

don't worry much if you don't understand this song
it might be just one more experiment gone wrong

you dont have to feel like a rhesus monkey
you have the key to set yourself free
you don't have to get down or be funky
you just have to learn how to be
yourself
just be yourself
that's all you need to be

unless you'd rather be
a rhesus monkey
