Lyrics

I am not a dog on a chain
I use my own brain
I can turn the conversation off
I'm too clever to be robbed
I am not a dog on a chain
thanks all the same
all my patience and all of my time
are securely mine
I hear the call, I hear a cry
I raise my voice, I have no choice
I raise my hand, I hammer twice
there is no point in being nice
I am not a dog on a chain
I use my own brain
I do not read 'news'papers
they are trouble-makers
listen out for what you're not being told
and gently shield the soul
in an easy and careless way
they'll try to sculpture all your views
So open up your nervous mouth
confidence comes streaming out
volume, pitch and rising cries
opening your blinkered eyes
otherwise you'll never know
who you are or all that you could do
but that's if you want to
I am not a dog on a chain
you've got to be insane
one is company and two's a crowd
you'll find as I have found
Maybe I'll be skinned alive
by Canada Goose
because of my views
Because of the truth
because of my fleece
because of my niece
like drinking ink
the words explode
fatter than fists
prouder than blows
fatter than fists
prouder than blows
the dead are dead
ice-cold and hard
to where they can't
be over-charged
they have no breath
they have no eyes
at least they won't
be dying twice.
