Leave Us Alone

Patrick Cannell 2015

I could hear the voices in your head.
You were paying heed to what they said.
They were giving reasons to see red.

Why don't you leave us alone?
Why don't you leave us alone?
You're breaking up a good home.
Why don't you leave us alone?

I could see the distrust in your eyes
And it came as such a big surprise,
All the crimes you must have visualised.

Why don't you leave us alone?
Why don't you leave us alone?
You're breaking up a good home.
Why don't you leave us alone?

Monkey number two laughs at you.
Monkey number three fell from a tree.

Now we all hear voices through the day
And they're trying to lead us all astray.
How I wish they'd all just go away.

Why don't you leave us alone?
Why don't you leave us alone?
You're breaking up a good home.
Why don't you leave us alone?
