Monkeyland

lyrics

I shake my head and shiver
They smile
And stab my back as they shake my hand
Send out an SOS plea
Come quickly
I'm marooned in monkeyland.
Is there anyone there
Who understands me?
Anyone at all?

I'm idly staring at the sky
Did anybody hear me sigh?
A million stars are a moving sight
To all you out there
Hearing me tonight
It's just a trick of the light

I have to know what is real
And what is illusion
Tell me how does it feel
Beyond this confusion?
Is there anyone there?

Do I dismiss this with a sigh?
Suppose I must from time to time
And let the answers pass me by
More questions set to bend the mind
Is my creator a God or a man?
Yes yours too
Does someone somewhere
Care and understand?
It's just a trick of the light

I have to know what is real
And what is illusion
Tell me how does it feel
Beyond this confusion?
Is there anyone there?

God's are optical illusions
Like other optical illusions
Oh beware
Beware
