Lyrics:
(Verse)
Lie to get what you want and then, lie to get what you can again, lie to
fill up your spoon again.  Lie, do it all over again.
(Chorus)
Chains
Chains
(Verse)
Lie, shake and sweat again, lie to fool your friends again, lie, fill up
your arm again.  Lie, do it all over again.
Chains
Chains
Chains
Chains
That I can't break
That I can't break
Lie to myself so why should I even pretend, when I'm a slave and I can't
stop.
