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 of 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 to 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
