There's something pulling on my sleeve
Full of tension
There's something breathing down my neck
Full of tension
Now if you wanna take it to the hilt
You can take it 'til you tilt
Something pulling on my sleeve
Full of tension

Watchin' out my window at the people in the street
I try to keep it quietЁcЁcthis feeling's got me beat
I can't contain myself no matter what I try


There's something breathing down my neck
Full of tension
A tiny hole burnt with a cigarette
Full of tension
And now I start to see the little spots
Stickin' to the wall and on the floor
Something pulling on my sleeve
Full of tension
Hup!


There's something tightening 'round my neck
Full of tension
There's something pulling on my sleeve
Full of tension
And I hear it knock-knock-knockin' at my door
I just can't take it anymore
Something pulling on my sleeve
Full of tension
Full of tension
Full of tensionЁcЁctension
Stand at full attention!
