You see me now a veteran
Of a thousand psychic wars
I've been living on the edge so long
Where the winds of limbo roar

And I'm young enough to look at
And far too old to see
All the scars are on the inside
I'm not sure if there's anything left to me

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave

We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains
Oh, please, don't let these shakes go on

You ask me why I'm weary
Why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence
Say it's time I changed and grew

But the war's still going on, dear
And there's no end that I know
And I can't say if we're ever
I can't say if we're ever gonna be free

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave

We've been living in the flames
We've been eating out our brains
Oh, please, don't let these shakes go on

You see me now a veteran
Of a thousand psychic wars
My energy's spent at last
And my armor is destroyed

I have used up all my weapons
And I'm helpless and bereaved
Wounds are all I'm made of
Did I hear you say that this is victory?

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
Send me to the rear
Where the tides of madness swell
And been sliding into hell

Oh, please don't let these shakes go on
Don't let these shakes go on
Don't let these shakes go on

Songwriters
Moorcock, Michael / Bloom, Eric
