Outta Control by Layla Roots

Every day of the week
you have to get up pretty early
You hate that day
with the first blink of your eyes

It feels like a thousand pounds
are lying on your whole body
Ponderous slipping out of your bed
Putting one food in front of the other

In the mirror is a face
looking back you don't know
Tired of life like it is,
worn out and emotionally dulled

Controlled and pursued by rules,
like to be tied up in a strait-jacket
which is getting tighter and tighter
slowly squeezing off your air.

You cannot take it anymore
the pressure gets higher and higher
every part of your innermost
threatens to explode.

Breaking your chains
you get outta control
Reaching for freedom
you get outta control

Your life is directed by
so many things - you didn`t ask for
you`re the main charakter
of an inhuman and cruel movie.

You won't be anymore
a will-less playing piece
in this damned game
of nowadays society.

Breaking your chains
you get outta control
Reaching for freedom
you get outta control
