I can see I'm a little unstable
Mystified, I'm tired and unable
To switch it on and switch it off daily
It's OK to say how you see me

It's about my time
There's no way
Please, this isn't working
I can't breathe
Got no air now

How can I live when I want to be free?
This is my time and these are my needs
It's OK to want before you fall down
You're sending me off on a mission I'm bound

Got to, got to, got to go crazy

Can you tell I'm a little bit hungry?
Mr Fabulous don't impress me
He talks to me with a speech without words
With the vowels all missing and the truth unheard

Please, this isn't working
I can't breathe
Got no air now

It's all about the money
It's all about the fame
It's not about the way you live your life
This is how I'm gonna break it down now

How can I live when I want to be free?
This is my time and these are my needs
It's OK to want before you fall down
You're sending me up on a mission, I'm bound

Give it to me
Ha!

Can't you see I'm a little bit weary
In a three piece suit and shoes that don't fit me
You're bright-eyed-bushy-tailed pushing it round
No I won't let it go, no I won't stop, won't stop

How can I live when I want to be free?
This is my time and these are my needs
It's OK to want before you fall down
You're sending me up on a mission, I'm bound

How can I live when I want to be free?
This is my time and these are my needs
It's OK to want before you fall down
You're sending me up on a mission, I'm bound

You're sending me up on a mission, I'm bound
You're sending me up on a mission, I'm bound
You're sending me up on a mission, I'm bound

Ha!
