Man Charade

Man Charade
the ape and je. -f.

This is not the world that I was born to
It doesn’t feel the same as when I was young
This is not the life I worked so hard for
Somewhere along the way, I must’ve done something wrong

Don’t hold your breath, my father said to me
Happy-ever-after, life’s a joke
Don’t hold your breath, but I could not believe
I was only here to be breathed and to choke

No!
I’m falling down back into this world of order
I’m falling down back into this world of chains
I can’t esc-ape although the law is broken
I can’t esc-ape ‘cause everybody says it’s just

And I’m not to question what has been just
For all these centuries
Still I tried to be somebody else
You can’t esc-ape the one you really are

No!
I’m falling down back into this world of order
I’m falling down back into this world of chains
I can’t esc-ape although the law is broken
I can’t esc-ape ‘cause everybody’s
Hanging on tight, hanging on tight, hanging on tight

And Jesus Faust, well, I know him very well
But unlike him I had a taste of victory, you see
I wasn’t raised to fall into temptation
I was raised to swing back into history

Yeah!
I’m falling down back into this world of order
I’m falling down back into this world of chains
I can’t esc-ape although the law is broken
I can’t esc-ape when no one holds me down

I’m falling down back into this world of order
I’m falling down back into this world of chains
I can’t esc-ape although the law is broken
I can’t esc-ape when no one ties me down
