Monkey Wrench

The Colour And The Shape

"This is a song about realising that you are the source of all of the problems in a relationship and you love the other person so much, you want to free them of the problem, which is actually yourself."

    What have we done with innocence?
    It disappeared with time
    It never made much sense
    Adolescent resident
    Wasting another night on planning my revenge
    One in ten
    Don't want to be your monkey wrench
    One more indecent accident
    I'd rather leave than suffer this
    I'll never be your monkey wrench
    All this time to make amends
    What do you do when all your enemies are friends
    Now and then I'll try to bend
    Under pressure wind up snapping in the end
    One in ten
    One last thing before I quit
    I never wanted any more than I could fit into my head
    I still remember every single word you said
    And the shit that somehow came along with it
    There's still one thing that comforts me
    Since I was always caged and now I'm free
    Don't want to be your monkey wrench
    (fall in fall out)
