It's not
What you thought
When you first began it
You got
What you want
Now you can hardly stand it though,
By now you know
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

You're sure
There's a cure
And you have finally found it
You think
One drink
Will shrink you 'til you're underground
And living down
But it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

Prepare a list of what you need
Before you sign away the deed
'Cause it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
So just... give up

    How long must it be before we do ever WISE UP? Sometimes a whole lifetime goes by & we never wise up... & it really n-e-v-e-r stops... This song should be bashed over our heads & it should really hurt.

    I tried so many times, to stop what it was I hated,
    In my past and vowed I would never be the thing that was
    Done to me, instead, I was doomed to repeat my shame,
    till I said enough is enough, and admitted who and what I was,
    and asked God, through Jesus Christ, to forgive me and help me
    speak out and stop trying to hide, the shame and hurt I
    had tried to hide. "my chains are gone" I've been set free.
