Monkeying Around


It's an infection
But you can't catch it
It can't be passed on
But when you have it
You'll wish you hadn't
I've had it all along
You can see what it does to me
It's doing it right now
I'm stuck with this
Stuck doing this
It's all I am allowed
And though there's not one thing to gain
I feel the need to entertain
I'd rather not but I do not have a choice
Never had a choice
I don't have a choice
Never had a choice
I know that I make it look easy
It's part of what I do
But this life of monkeying around is what I must get through
It would be so much more easy
If I did not have to come
Out here and make you laugh at me
And what I have become
And though nobody asked me to
I'm going to show you what I do
I'm sorry for this but I don't have a choice
Never had a choice
I don't have a choice
I'm trapped in this life
Not like I ever got rewards
And I don't want them anymore
Took me one thousand tries to see
There's something wrong with me
I am facing blackness
