I am not a dog on a chain
 +
I use my own brain
 +
I can turn the conversation off
 +
I'm too clever to be robbed
 +
I am not a dog on a chain
 +
thanks all the same
 +
all my patience and all of my time
 +
are securely mine
 +
I hear the call, I hear a cry
 +
I raise my voice, I have no choice
 +
I raise my hand, I hammer twice
 +
there is no point in being nice
 +
I am not a dog on a chain
 +
I use my own brain
 +
I do not read 'news'papers
 +
they are trouble-makers
 +
listen out for what you're not being told
 +
and gently shield the soul
 +
in an easy and careless way
 +
they'll try to sculpture all your views
 +
So open up your nervous mouth
 +
confidence comes streaming out
 +
volume, pitch and rising cries
 +
opening your blinkered eyes
 +
otherwise you'll never know
 +
who you are or all that you could do
 +
but that's if you want to
 +
I am not a dog on a chain
 +
you've got to be insane
 +
one is company and two's a crowd
 +
you'll find as I have found
 +
Maybe I'll be skinned alive
 +
by Canada Goose
 +
because of my views
 +
Because of the truth
 +
because of my fleece
 +
because of my niece
 +
like drinking ink
 +
the words explode
 +
fatter than fists
 +
prouder than blows
 +
fatter than fists
 +
prouder than blows
 +
the dead are dead
 +
ice-cold and hard
 +
to where they can't
 +
be over-charged
 +
they have no breath
 +
they have no eyes
 +
at least they won't
 +
be dying twice.
