Nervous System

[Edited by Spurmeon, Mr. Punch, Sapromind]

Everybody's looking for a life, looking for a wife, no escape
Beat the other man, get your money, get your car
It's a bit of a joke
You're walking down the streets
You see the face, you see the instinct
Start picking it up
Everybody's looking for a life to be described
No chance!

|: Nervous system – I don't like it! :|
I'm getting out of this system

You better do what they say
Better live life the way of an average man
Be yourself, get your car, do what you want, that's funny!
Gonna get me all the portion you consigned
For your perfect man
We know how you do it, how you do it
Mind psychology

|: Nervous system – I don't like it! :|
I'm getting out of this system

Every year, I go on holiday
Every day, I do the routine
9 till 5, 9 till 5 – live around the clock cause they tell me
9 till 5, 9 till 5 – live around the clock cause they tell ya

Everybody's looking for a life, looking for a wife, no escape
Beat the other man, get your money, get your car
It's a bit of a joke
You're walking down the streets
You see the face, you see the instinct
Start picking it up
Everybody's looking for a life to be described
No chance!

|: Nervous system – I don't like it! :|
I'm getting out of this system
