Marionette Lyrics

No puppet, no liar, won't bend my lips to wire, no
Don't pressurize me so
Don't gamble, with my life or you won't live to do it twice
Oh, take some good advice from me and let the wires rock

All dressed in black so nobody sees you
Smile in the wings, tell me I please you
Call me a king and watch for the woodworm to choke me

And you're like a giraffe, the performance is poor
Watch the audience laugh as my head hits the floor
When I'm broken in half you still reach for the floor

Stop, I've had enough of this
The pantomime's reversed
I need, you feed
I greed, you bleed

Marionette, I ain't one yet
Teacher's pet, well, you'd better forget it
Marionette, I ain't one yet
Teacher's pet, go check your stocks and shares

And when the coffin comes
Make sure there's room for two
You lied, I led
I died, you're dead

Marionette, I ain't one yet
Teacher's pet, you'd better forget it
Marionette, I ain't one yet
Teacher's pet, go check your product

A traitor, deceiver, a groovy disbeliever I thought
A puppet was a thing cheap taught, no way
Creator, conceiver, romantic love receiver, caught

Who are you?
The nerve
I wanna get out, I wanna get out
I wanna get out, I wanna get out
I wanna get out

Oh, he wanna play chords to the chick on the street
He wanna play words to a world that don't speak
He wanna play people who play hide n' seek when they don't talk

He wanna play a riff to the man with the wires
He wanna play lead but his hand's getting tired
He just wanna play but don't know how to say

Stop, okay, the show's been fun
But my wood's begun to warp
They won, I'm done
New one, begun

Marionette, I did my best
Teacher's pet, it just couldn't last
Marionette, get me out of this mess
Teacher's little pet, it happened so fast

Marionette, now I need a rest
Teacher's pet, where's my sanity gone mother?
Marionette, I did my best
Teacher's little pet, I'm just like all the others

They gambled, with my life
And now I've lost my will to fight
Oh God these wires are so tight
I'm just a Marionette
