Lyrics

Pictures and poetry
truth, lies and misery
spiral around the thoughts in my head,
airplanes and hostesses
cocaine and restlessness
parties and princesses
all in my head

and I try so hard to forget
yea I try so hard to forget
I would deal with the devil
take this monkey off my back,

I was out of my mind all the time
I was a spaced out space cadet
I was dirty and mean
I had some kind of scene
with every single girl I met
I was lost in space
I was wasted, washed up
and left for dead
I was blind
had no hope in my mind
and no sense left in my head

Champagne and ecstasy
hookers and fantasies
love life's a mystery
lost in my bed
girlfriends and mistresses
angels and savages
all in my head

and I try so hard to forget
yea I try so hard to forget
I would deal with the devil
take this monkey off my back

I was cruel, such a fool
broke the rules so uncool
I was such a mess
Lived for kicks
lived for tricks
I pushed the limits of excess
I was lost in space
I was washed up wasted
and left for dead
I was blind had no hope in my mind
and no sense left in my head

no sense left, no sense left
there's no sense left in my head

And I would deal with the devil
take this monkey off my back
