lyrics

A man comes face to face with another man running another dead man's race/ their eyes are electrified between the beaten broken wall/ their son's are asking "father, why oh why do you even bother?"/ meanwhile the boys in blue are creeping in the shadows/ her skin is made of plastic/ eyes and legs of pure black magic/ nobody cares to tell her blouse is coming undone/ professional and violent, her sex is swift and silent/ she wouldn't dare leave behind any witnesses oh/ I am not part of that monkey business/ I am not part of that monkey business no, no/ I am not part of that monkey business/ I am not part of that monkey business/ their faces stuffed with cocaine, chasing after money and fame/ a trophy wife decked in white, but she ain't an angel/ he likes the way that it feels when she bends and twists at his will/ and she would rather put a bullet in his brain/ its never consensual or loving/ both their bodies bruised and bloody/ he yells at her while she wishes she could say what she feels/ instead she'll drain the cognac/ maybe one day the bastard will have a heart attack/ and she could drown all her problems in his dirty money/ I am not part of that monkey business/ I am not part of that monkey business no, no/ I am not part of that monkey business/ I am not part of that monkey business/
