It's 2am and I'm awake again and all I want is some sleep
I take a look into the dark and the dark looks back at me

But oh this life is so much longer
Than I ever thought that it could be
And I am tired tired of being human
And this world has made a monkey out of me

I climb the trees and then I fall back down again
I'm on my hands and knees trying to stand so that I can pretend

That I am not so tired of trying
To be all the things I thought that I would be
And I am sick so sick of being human
And this life has made a monkey out of me

It's 4am and all I want is to remember how to breathe
And when the morning comes the day will take me in its arms like a thief

And I drive a car just like a human
And human is all that I will ever be
Cause I sweat and bleed and cry just like a human
But this world has made a monkey out of me

So hold on to me cause you're the only thing that I know how to do
Please hold on to me because I don't know how else I will make it through

And maybe I will fight you but I am trying
To be as human as an animal can be
But it's so hard to stand on two legs
When this life has made a monkey out of me
