Steady, keep it steady

I want to break the things that seek to control
I want to live my life with no rules at all
I want to smash the lips that smile down on me
I want to rip and tear until I am free

Steady, keep it, steady

I want to touch the places lost deep inside
I want to see the ugly faces that hide
I want to reach down to the end of what's there
I went to strip the surface till all is bare

Steady, keep it, steady

I want to jump out of my skin and be free
I want to kill the little thing that is me
I want to laugh and giggle, I want to scream
I want to wake up from this life crushing dream
I want to wash my body bare in the stream
I want to liberate this human machine
I want to laugh and giggle, I want to spit
I want to make you wonder what is it?
What is it?

You know one thing that I think attracts people
To a steady beat, to a steady beat, is the certainty
Of where it will be, of where it will be, in the next
Moment, its inevitability with no variation, the
Comfort and security of knowing what and who you
Are, you hear that beat, you hear that beat, it's
Beating on you, it's beating on me, you hear that beat,
You hear that beat, it's beating on you, it's
Beating on me
