(gimme back) I need my hands,
(gimme back) I want my feet.
(gimme back) give me my soul,
I'm incomplete.

(gimme back) I need my eyes,
(gimme back) I want my teeth.
(gimme back) gimme my scope,
Give me my beliefs.

[ chorus ]

Oh, here I hang on this - hook, line and sinker.
Don't take the skin off my fingers!

(gimme back) I need my arms,
(gimme back) my back is bent.
(gimme back) I want my hope,
I'm deficient.

(gimme back) I need my blood,
(gimme back) I want my space.
(gimme back) gimme my dream.
I rest my case.

[ repeat chorus ]

Like a fire without a flame,
Desert with no rain.

(gimme back) I need my face,
(gimme back) I want my beat.
(gimme back) gimme my pulse,
I'm in retreat.

(gimme back) I need my hair,
(gimme back) I want my voice.
(gimme back) gimme my vision,
Gimme back my choice.

[ repeat chorus ]

Like a fire without a flame,
Desert with no rain.

Oh, mountain high,
I'm in so deep.
Look down, look down on i.
Take these chains from off my feet.

I'm a fire without a flame,
Desert with no rain.

I want my beat,
I'm incomplete.
I want my face.
I rest my case.
