I wake up everyday it's a daydream Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems I wake up just to go back to sleep I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence A heavy bass line is my kind of silence Everybody says that I gotta get a grip But I let sanity give me the slip CHORUS

Some people think I'm bonkers But I just think I'm free Man, I'm just livin' my life There's nothin' crazy about me Some people pay for thrills But I get mine for free Man, I'm just livin' my life There's nothin' crazy about me
